A stack of hefty Harry Potter novels sits atop a table, along with a few odds and ends that look like they belong to Harry himself: a wand, a Gryffindor scarf, a pair of circular spectacles. But the grinning girl posing behind the books isn’t smiling because she just encountered the boy wizard. She’s beaming because today is her Sweet 16 party, and the items in front of her are actually elaborate cakes masquerading as novels and wizard accessories. The birthday girl has Annie’s Culinary Creations to thank. The bakers at Annie’s specialize in crafting cakes that reflect each customer’s personality, whether that means a cake shaped like a flip-flop, an electric guitar, or Indiana Jones’s hat and suitcase. The bakers create these varied masterpieces with equally varied flavor options, including peanut-butter-cup filling (a customer favorite), almond buttercream icing, and marshmallow fondant. And the confectioner’s more traditional offerings such as petit fours, cookies, and three-tiered wedding cakes still inspire awe with their meticulous craftsmanship.

Like snowball fights and hurt feelings, health and happiness are inevitably linked. The team at Yoganics understands this, and they work to promote total well-being through the practice of yoga paired with customizable liquid cleanses that last one to three days and begin with an individual consultation. Clients can fully stretch out achy limbs as they sweat through hot-yoga classes, or run through poses in good company during family yoga sessions. A Girl’s Night Out class and Broga—a strength-based workout for guys—are also part of the lively lineup. To supplement exercises, staff also sell juices, shots, smoothies, and more from organic and locally grown produce.
The Marble Slab Creamery sensory experience begins by just walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Gourmet ice creams are freshly crafted on site from Marble Slab’s original recipe, enticing customer's eyes with a rainbow of colors. Once clients have made a flavor selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice cream chef then hand-folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavor masterpiece into a house-made waffle cone.
In addition to procuring hand-held treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed quarts, or in the capable hands of a catering team for sprucing up special events such a corporate get-togethers or school functions with sundae bars in tow.
