Husband and wife Angel and James are Partners in Cake. Angel takes care of the baking, while James takes care of the decorating and crafting scenes with fondant and gum paste. Completely self-taught, Angel accumulated a wealth of skills while studying under her mother in the kitchen. James, the master sculptor, draws inspiration from his days as a childhood Play-Doh aficionado. Friends encouraged the two to practice their pastry hobby fulltime, and when their creative forces meet, the two craft custom cakes for all occasions, including weddings and graduations. Their creations include edible 3D renditions of intergalactic robot R2D2, the Statue of Liberty, and Michael Jordan's shoe from Space Jam, which was easier to recreate than his heart of gold. At the heart of each creation are pillowy layers of cake in flavors such as red velvet, banana, and lemon zest, with fillings such as cream cheese, coconut cream, and lemon curd.

Madres Restaurant's new location matches the charm of the original Friendswood eatery, dishing out the same elegant takes on lime-marinated ceviche, sizzling fajitas, and sauce-slathered enchiladas. After finishing off the last bacon-wrapped shrimp brochette, patrons can request that a chef wrap bacon around other Madres offerings, such as buffalo wings or glasses of red wine.

The sub-making professionals at Quiznos design a menu stacked with an expansive selection of speedy snacks, including soups and salads. A fleet of classic subs ($4.49–$7.29) waits to dive into mouths, as do flatbread sammies ($3) and chopped salads ($3.19–$5.99). For a trimmer sandwich take, try the Torpedo ($4) or Bullet ($3) sizes—longer, leaner baguettes packed with yummy stuffings, from the pesto turkey's mozzarella, turkey, and basil pesto to the Italian's heaping piles of ham, salami, capicola, and pepperoni. Avoid deathbed laments to your increasingly exasperated butlers with today’s Groupon to Quiznos, providing a dependable lunch option, park-bench dinner, or appropriate meal to be seen eating at a stoplight.

The Cake Lady's bakers have been baking and frosting fresh confections daily since 1979. Batches of cake balls roll from the oven and somersault into sweet coatings before launching themselves into mouths via edible trebuchet. White-cake cupcakes induce barely audible taste-bud cheers with simple, delectable flavor, and chocolate-frosted confections sate tonsils’ cocoa cravings. Patrons can pick and choose their 6 or 12 sweet morsels to create a custom snack for holiday parties or to fuel the post-game celebrations of winning foosball teams. Customers can upgrade to specialty flavors such as strawberry shortcake or coconut for an additional $0.50 apiece; please note that specialty-flavor orders must be placed at least three days in advance.

Scoop wranglers at Piccomolo fashion fresh batches of gelato daily from all-natural ingredients such as fresh milk, which imbues the dessert with lower fat, calorie, and sugar content than its heavy-cream-laced archnemesis, ice cream. A glass display case houses a rotating display of 30 milk-based, fruit-based, and no-sugar-added gelatos selected from Piccomolo’s roster of 150 flavors such as peanut-butter cup, blackberry, and hazelnut. Tykes can finger-paint portraits of their favorite Winnie the Pooh characters with flavorful pigments from kid-size portions ($2.89), and adults collect two to four flavors in single small, medium, or large cups ($3.99–$5.99). Alternatively, customers can choose 6-or 8-inch gelato cakes in signature flavors such as fudge brownie and turtle cheesecake, or create custom cakes for special occasions such as birthday dinners or traditional Arbor Day food fights.
