Tarsha Eaddy had large cupcake pans to fill when she, the eldest of all her family's grandchildren, decided to take on the role of the family baker and establish MBK Fine Desserts. But upon starting off on her own, Tarsha didn’t stray far from her family’s confectionary roots. In fact, she extended them right into her bakery by turning to her grandmother—lovingly known as Mother Boyd—for her highly praised recipes.
Now, Tarsha handcrafts those Southern-style pies, puddings, cupcakes, cakes, and cake pops, ensuring each batch is made from scratch and preservative free. Her buttery piecrusts envelop sweet fillings of peach cobbler and bourbon pecan, and her cakes come moist and tasteful in Italian cream, coconut, and lemon flavors.
Even though Tarsha uses decades-old recipes, she takes a modern approach to her craft by transforming her sweet treats into edible works of art, whether by custom decorating wedding cake pops or making logo-covered cakes and graduation-themed cupcakes.
A totem pole shaped like a four-scoop ice-cream cone stands as a beacon in front of Jim Mack's Ice Cream, beckoning passers-by to experience the nostalgic establishment's homemade ice cream, 24-hole miniature-golf course, and resident black bear, Ricky. The ice-cream stand and snack shop, which opened in 1958, crafts a menu of ice cream, malts, burgers, hot dogs, fries, and other specialties. The outdoor picnic area allows guests to enjoy their treats to the sounds of chirping birds and whistling winds, which also serve as the mini-golf course's full-time commentators. The expansive, family-friendly facility also features a pinball arcade and a miniature zoo. Llamas and goats roam the petting-zoo area, grazing from the delicious pellets that grow in children's hands. The facility's mascot, Ricky the bear, also greets guests from inside of her large enclosure where she climbs on logs and tells jokes for nickels.
At Tanya's Cookie Boutique, cookies can be disguised as almost anything. That's because Tanya, the baker behind the shop, decorates each cookie by hand after she pulls it from the oven. Miniature houses, ice-cream cones, and playing cards are a few of the designs she crafts with batter and icing. She also teaches groups how to make their own decorative sweets during in-store classes.

While adults sip gourmet brews from Seattle’s Best and bolster blood cells with fuel from the colorful and healthy menu, children can chow down on grilled Cheesasaurus sandwiches or dash off to one of the three sunny adjoining playrooms. One space entertains kids ages 2–6, encouraging theatrical, creative play, while the s'mores-soft Tot Spot amuses kids under 2, and older kids improve hand-eye-coordination playing a variety of video games. Adults can choose to observe the anthropological doings within, or check kids in with a qualified playroom sitter and return to the calm land of rooibos, biscotti, and the art of adult conversation.
