The heart-shaped sugar cookies that rise in the ovens at Abeeya's Bakery have been bundled up and shipped to destinations across the globe. Head decorator Dana Tucker and her team of bakers paint each of their signature cookies by hand—artisanship at its best. They also painstakingly add icing to customized birthday and wedding cakes with imaginative designs using their signature housemade frosting. Each day, the bakery display cases are stocked with freshly baked cookies, pies, cupcakes, and specialty desserts, creating a kaleidoscope of color beneath the playful movie posters that adorn the walls, a scene that conjures daydreams about which Baldwin would play Shakespeare in a modern biopic.

Though many fro-yo shops have sprung up in recent years, TCBY is no newcomer to the scene. Since 1981, its shops have been scooping, swirling, and topping their lower-fat treat in crunchy candy and fruity sprinkles—but that doesn't mean they've been coasting. They're still innovating, whether it's tweaking standby flavors or developing their signature honey-vanilla Greek frozen yogurt that dishes out protein and fiber without any fat. Fro-yo artisans blend up Beriyo smoothies in flavors such as mangolada and purely peach or infuse Shivers with a choice of sweet topping options. To celebrate a birthday or a jury-duty-selection-pool reunion, you can opt for frozen yogurt cakes and pies. The piece-accommodating treats are layered with frozen yogurt and rich toppings to forge flavors such as chocolate decadence and peanut-buttery fudge pie.

Sisters by marriage and self-proclaimed baking fanatics, Lauren and Lindsey Whittle inject a little flair of Beverly Hills into their southern cupcake enterprise.

The bakers conveniently present their cupcakes in full size or the eponymously named Whittle half size. When she's not hatching schemes for new flavors, sister Lauren Whittle competes as a local beauty queen and looks forward to celebratory baths of cake frosting when she wins.
