There's an artful touch in Jackie Green's baking hand. She's fond of the process, of finding the right ingredients and making cakes that crumble with Southern-style deliciousness. She's been baking since she was a young girl, and her family tradition taught her to eschew preservatives and hydrogenated oils to keep her recipes as flavorful as possible. Her specialty? Iced butter pound cake topped with pecans and a cream-cheese glaze. As the consummate small-business owner, Jackie blends managerial expertise with her baking talent; you might see her dispensing samples of her cupcakes, brownies, or cookies at local markets. This consistent professionalism helped Jackie earn the title of Best Bakery from the Holly Springs Sun in 2010.

From behind a frozen granite slab, the staff of Cold Stone Creamery uses twin spatulas to blend custom servings of ice cream and creative mix-ins to fit customers? exact specifications. Founded by Donald and Susan Sutherland in 1988, Cold Stone began under the hot Arizona sun, eventually spreading its frosty fingers to encompass more than 1,400 locations worldwide. Despite the size of the company, each location?s staff keeps up the handcrafted quality, making ice cream onsite every day and using those signature spatulas to create delicious pointillist art against the freezer wall.

At The Ice Cream Shop, more than 30 flavors of Hershey's ice cream take the form of cones, cups, floats, malted shakes, and sundaes, filling the shop's polka-dotted interior with frozen feasts. The menu's classic confections range from $1.89 to $6.99 in price, and fold in frozen flavors that range from nontraditional cotton candy and cappuccino crunch to old-fashioned scoopables, such as butter pecan, strawberry, and frozen daguerreotype. Tongues slip on the Muddy Sneakers flavor for a taste of white-chocolate ice cream racing against a ripple of caramel fudge, peanut candies, and nuggets of chocolate and caramel. Toppings, such as fruit, whipped cream, and malt bespeckle cold creations, and five cone varieties ensure that ice cream is never shoved into a purse or cargo pocket for storage.
