The pastry chefs at A&J Bakery have been summoning sweets to life for more than 25 years, perfecting their recipes for made-from-scratch cakes, cupcakes, and petits-fours. Cupcake confections are offered in 12 flavors, which can be mixed and matched for a bountiful bakery buffet including comfort-inducing red velvet or sweet-tooth-trouncing banana. Indulge in classics such as carrot cake and yellow butter, or explore such creative concoctions as sour-cream coffee—a spiraled blend of sugar and spices that’s as satisfying a morning treat as a lollipop omelet or a bagel topped with newspaper cream cheese.

For more than a quarter of a century, bakery owners Roza and Sam Volfson—also owners of In the Mix Bakery in Plano—have labored at the ovens, honing their craft in professional kitchens, culinary schools, and catering services until they perfected the techniques used to craft each of their mouthwatering personalized desserts. After emigrating from Russia in the early '80s, the couple brought with them years of training in European pastry craft, along with Roza's own original recipes for conjuring lavishly decorated, multitier wedding cakes and then patiently chiseling them down into lovely petits fours. Beyond crafting custom confections for the likes of the Dallas Mavericks and Bank of America, the duo has also won numerous accolades for their sugary treats, including a 2010 nomination for Best Bakery for Sweets by D Magazine and an award for Best Cinnamon Rolls in Dallas from the Dallas Observer in 2003.
