The first food trucks were pulled by horses, which often ate all the ingredients themselves and were forced to earn the money back by arranging fixed races with their friends. Gallop toward sweet satisfaction with today’s Groupon to Custom Confections, a traveling full-service bakery and confection truck located in and around west Houston.

Working within a mobile bakery and fueled by more than 25 years of experience, the pastrysmiths at Custom Confections forge more than 70 different varieties of cakes, cupcakes, and other gourmet treats. For 6- or 8-inch double-layer cakes, customers can upgrade to fillings of flavors such as peanut-butter banana or snickerdoodle (additional $5/$11 for heart cakes; additional $4.50/$11 for round cakes), rounding treats out with true buttercream frosting or an optional layer of fondant ($9–$14 extra, depending on cakes). Icings range from classics such as butter pecan and unique spreads as cola or mixed berry, and filling options include fresh fruit slices, custard, marmalade, and mousse. Custom Confections is one of the only bakeries to offer butter pecan frosting. Apron-clad knights form each cake into a circle or a heart shape before emblazoning it with custom Valentine’s Day love notes or April Fools’ Day love notes.
