Beginning as a humble sweet-potato-pie purveyor, Welna Scott expanded her dessert endeavors to include traditional and boozy cupcakes, as well as specialty cakes and other styles of pies. Adorn tables forged from scarecrow bones with two classic autumn pies, or choose one dozen cupcakes in flavors such as coconut with coconut whipped cream or strawberry with whipped strawberry cream cheese. Of-age adults opting for both pie and mini cakes can request alcohol infusions for the latter, a small modification that combines the three most popular luxuries: dessert, drinking, and turkey basters.
Rum cakes are the treat of choice at JustRumCakes, though there is more to this business than meets the eye. Seven styles of rum cake pepper the menu, ranging from raisin rum cake and pecan rum cake to pineapple rum cake infused with fresh pineapples. Celebration cakes make for a tasty and eye-popping addition to any occasion, and feature designs such as 3D renditions of objects or images printed on the frosting. The menu also teases tongues with indulgent cupcakes in flavors such as vanilla swirl and pineapple express.
