Beginning as a humble sweet-potato-pie purveyor, Welna Scott expanded her dessert endeavors to include traditional and boozy cupcakes, as well as specialty cakes and other styles of pies. Adorn tables forged from scarecrow bones with two classic autumn pies, or choose one dozen cupcakes in flavors such as coconut with coconut whipped cream or strawberry with whipped strawberry cream cheese. Of-age adults opting for both pie and mini cakes can request alcohol infusions for the latter, a small modification that combines the three most popular luxuries: dessert, drinking, and turkey basters.
Rum cakes are the treat of choice at JustRumCakes, though there is more to this business than meets the eye. Seven styles of rum cake pepper the menu, ranging from raisin rum cake and pecan rum cake to pineapple rum cake infused with fresh pineapples. Celebration cakes make for a tasty and eye-popping addition to any occasion, and feature designs such as 3D renditions of objects or images printed on the frosting. The menu also teases tongues with indulgent cupcakes in flavors such as vanilla swirl and pineapple express.
Every weekend during warmer months, Giovanni's Italian Ice posts up outdoors to provide passersby with a ice-cold, colorful break from the heat. Giovanni's traveling ice-slingers are also available for private events, such as birthday parties and snowman funerals.
Bakers at The Cupcake People construct diminutive cakes from scratch, drawing upon a palette of fresh ingredients such as Madagascar bourbon vanilla, sweet potatoes, and dark chocolate. The array of flavors parades options including the chocolate Chunky Monkey cupcake, which is crowned with banana caramel frosting and the crushed pretzels used by monkeys as currency. The vanilla-rum confection basks beneath cream-cheese frosting, and a sweet-potato cupcake calls upon the moist, orange goodness of real sweet potatoes beneath a cloak of brown-sugar and cinnamon buttercream. Customers snag traditionally sized cupcakes for a special dessert, or lay out trays of mini cakes to make visiting action figures feel closer to scale size.
