Advances in miniaturization technology led to a brief but intense dessert-shrinking frenzy that gave us the cupcake, the baked rhode island, and the gingerbread amoeba.

Led by sugar-savvy sisters Kimberly and Kristina, the bakers at Faboo Cakes keep their ovens warm with creatively designed cake pops, cupcakes, and wedding cakes. The bakeshop’s rotating ensemble of fresh treats overflows with overloaded brownies, éclairs, and handmade marshmallows fresh from a skinny dip in a chocolate river. To create custom wedding cakes, bakers whip together fresh, real butter, milk, flour, sugar, and eggs into artful designs that delight taste buds and eyes equally.
To-be-weds can enlist a couple of confidants to help them to sample flavors during a tasting for four, nibbling cake flavors such as triple-dutch chocolate, creamy mocha chip, and white almond sour cream. Twosomes can also sample buttercream flavors such as chai and pomegranate, test the cheek-smearing consistency of spicy cocoa, or select caramelized pineapple filling to symbolize their first date inside a pineapple. Although not included in this deal, bakers can also upgrade cakes with add-ons and 3-D carvings to realize more extravagant visions.
With nothing but real butter, milk, flour, sugar, eggs, and sheer artistic ability, sisters Kimberly and Kristina and their team keep Faboo Cakes' ovens churning out elaborate and edible art pieces. Their sweet cake sculptures have taken the shape of football mascots, musical instruments, trucks, sci-fi characters, and pets. In addition to crafting whimsical desserts, the bakeshop whips up brownies, cookies, whoopie pies, fresh tarts, and other pastries, as well as marshmallows made by hand or plucked fresh from the tree. Kimberly and Kristina also reveal their secrets in hands-on baking classes.
