After a debilitating car accident left Elyissia Wassung’s mother, Barbara, unable to commute to work, she stayed busy in the kitchen, devising her own homemade chocolates. Nine-year-old Elyissia would then load her mother’s sweets into a shopping cart and sell them door-to-door around the neighborhood, learning entrepreneurial skills that would last a lifetime. After leaving a telecom job as an adult, Elyissia returned to selling chocolates by founding 2 Chicks with Chocolate (the other chick being her mom), teaming up with master chocolatier Patrick Coston and lead chocolatier Stephanie Vazquez. The dessert innovators create diverse flavors, such as spiced pear and caramel ganache, s’mores, and hazelnut praline, from scratch with spices and sea salt. Customers can also create their own bars online without venturing into the store, building on a selection of chocolate bases and toppings that range from pistachios to gummy bears. The store also hosts chocolate classes and enlivens parties with chocolate fountains and chocolate tastings.

There's literally no sweeter war won than cupcake war. Just ask Ruthie and Ron Bzdewka, who in 2008 founded House of Cupcakes in Princeton, New Jersey after taking home top honors from the second season of Food Network's Cupcake Wars. The owners' cupcakes are even more in demand than they were before their victory on the show, which is why they now fling them at celebrities during special events including the MTV Music Awards. The secret to Ruthie and Ron's success: their grandma's cupcake recipe, which is the basis for increasing selection of more than 45 unique flavors, such as the award-winning Espresso Brownie, Salted Caramel, and Coconut Vanilla Snowball.

Not limiting their expertise to cupcake orders, baked goods-lovers can delight their palette with the tastes of other creations, including push-pops, cake-pops, cookies, mini-cupcakes, gourmet banana pudding, and brownies. Gourmet handmade ice cream sandwiches are also available, and are made from scratch with a choice from 15 different cookies, brownies, and 30+ ice cream flavors. Their large selection can be produced into custom orders for any event, such as color-coordinated cupcakes for weddings, logo-emblazoned pull-apart cakes for corporate outings, and tailored treats for baby showers or birthdays.
