The talented bakers at Nolands Cakes hand-fashion mouthwatering customized cakes, cookies, seasonal pies, and cupcakes, crafting each to help celebrate any occasion.

Though the bakers at Sweet Delish are known for their moist, fluffy cakes, they aren't known for their slices. Instead, they adapt their cakes into portable, handheld versions, from the cake pop to the cupcake. Each miniature treat is a tiny piece of art, with the simplest ones bearing edible sprinkle pearls and the most complicated versions molded into shapes. The bakers have created tiny jack-o-lanterns, baseballs, and Mickey Mouses, thus helping birthday parties have an appropriately themed treat.

At first it seemed like the only people who would ever hear about Patrick Caldwell's pies were his friends and family. Using a recipe born in North Carolina and passed down from his mother, he'd craft his specialty white-sweet-potato pie for every family gathering. But it was his mother-in-law who gave him the final push to turn his pie-making hobby into a full-time endeavor. Using the family recipe as a blueprint, Patrick began to tweak the formula to make it perfect, aging his white sweet potatoes in a wine cellar for nine months to enhance their natural sweetness and cure them of their fear of the dark. Before long, Patrick's Famous Pies were in high demand at area farmer's markets, where he still sells them today alongside other specialties like sweet-potato bread and peach cobbler.
