Boxes of cake mix and premade frosting have no place in the kitchen of Mad Maddox Cakes. That's because the bakery's culinary-school-educated owner makes every cake and cupcake from scratch, infusing fresh batters with inventive flavors, such as caramel sea salt. The spot also crafts ornate multilayered wedding cakes and custom cakes sculpted into creative shapes. Patrons can also schedule cake tastings to choose from a series of cakes before a catered special event.
