  • Cheryl's

These days the versatile bakery draws on 30 years of experience to craft treats and gift baskets that help mark special occasions, churning out an assortment of cakes and brownies alongside their signature happy-face cookies. Most of the treats are certified kosher and come in a variety of flavors, from snickerdoodle to buttercream.
