Two decades of experience back the baked goods of Supreme Kakes’ Chef Veronica, whose creative cakes and pastries have graced the sweet teeth of celebrities such as Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and earned praise from Houston’s Chamber of Latino Entrepreneurs for their design and taste. Brimming with fillings such as chocolate mousse, cream cheese, and dulce de leche, cake flavors range from a classic carrot to a swiss chocolate more decadent than a cruise ship painted with fondant ($18+). Add flavor to weddings, showers, and religious ceremonies with a custom cake ($3.25+/slice), which can sport tiers of different flavors or showcase a signature recipe that pairs yellow cake with bavarian cream, caramel filling, and a layer of crispy phyllo dough. Cupcakes ($3.50+ each; $26+/dozen) may be personalized for Valentine’s Day or tailored to match outfits so they can be worn as earrings. Today’s Groupon may also be used at the Supreme Kakes café, whose menu teems with meaty empanadas ($1.60), deli-style sandwiches ($5.50–$6.95), and four types of house-made pizza ($7.95–$8.95).
Supreme Kakes' Chef Veronica spent 19 years in the kitchen mastering the sugary, floury basics of baking cakes great and small, an effort that earned her customizable-cake business enough traction to risk moving from her home kitchen to a 6,000-square-foot bakery in 2009. There, the chef and her equally adventurous staff craft statuesque sweets from a rich palette of 50 flavors and fillings such as almond amaretto cream and chocolate raspberry truffle. Veronica's artful baked-to-order cakes become the centerpiece at weddings and birthdays, channeling the honorees' personality and passions through vivid likenesses of cartoon characters, architectural marvels, or favorite sports broadcasters. The bake masters supplement their repertoire of towering sweets with their diminutive cousins, buttercream- and fondant-based cupcakes, and can often accommodate dietary and allergy restrictions with wheat- and gluten-free goods or cakes shaped into enormous antihistamine capsules.
