Radio-controlled cars speed along the dirt path of twin, 20,000-square-foot off-road racetracks at RC Hobby Shop, spurred on by shouts of encouragement and furiously twisting thumbs. Too colossal to fit inside the building, the tracks embody RC Hobby Shop’s serious approach to having fun. Inside the 9,400-square-foot retail space, stacks of toys line the aisles and beckon kids and hobbyists with battery-operated modern gadgets and timeless classics such as yo-yos and board games. Model makers of every age can stoke their creative sparks with detailed modeling kits that reconstruct classic cars, elaborate train sets, and Lilliputian crime scenes.

For birthdays and anniversaries, chocolate wielders can personalize bouquets with gifts such as plush teddy bears and mylar balloons.
Armed with real butter, eggs, and cream, the bakers at Dream Cakes by Carolyn sate sweet teeth with scrumptious cupcakes and custom cakes. Frosted red velvet, double-chocolate, butter-cake, and marble cupcakes incubate behind glass displays as they dream of growing into full-size confections. Before designing custom cakes ($90–$250), customers can browse the online gallery for ideas and select their favorite flavors and designs. Tasty red bows accent white stuccoed frosting on round layer cakes, whose compatriots go undercover as realistic handbags, old-fashioned turntables, or colorful Gucci purses. Towering cowboy hats perch on square confections that proclaim "happy birthday" as playful animals pose on tiered frosted habitats. Popular custom flavors include butter cake slathered with butter-cream or chocolate frosting, italian amaretto cake, and a combo cake of chocolate, strawberry, and red velvet, which struggles to forge a coherent culinary identity.
