Drawing on the traditions of her baker-to-the-stars mother while adding her own artistic flair, The Office Cake's master baker Sarah Paz custom-makes a variety of cakes, cupcakes, and cookies for any event, but particularly specializes in last-minute office celebrations. Give a coworker the gift of good taste with a 6" mini white bow cake ($18), available in base flavors like chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, or marble, with optional fillings ($7) like rich custard cream, guava, kahlua, and amaretto. The Office Cake's more festive signature cake, the Fondant Confetti ($26+), comes adorned with frosting balloons and curled streamers, and can be used to celebrate particularly joyous office events, such as funny YouTube videos involving cats and a fresh pot of flavored coffee. Cakes can also be specially made in the shape of football helmets, open cigar boxes, 3D computer laptops, the Simpsons, and more. Cupcakes ($15+ for a regular-sized six-pack) make a deliciously backhanded treat for micro-managing managers, while cookies ($24 for two doz.) provide the necessary energy needed to endure a long PowerPoint presentation about how to make compelling PowerPoint presentations. Because her shop has a strict policy against freezing its wonderful wares, Sarah bakes her morsels fresh each morning, then applies icing, filling, and décor once the order has been placed.
