Lil’ Bella Boutique’s experienced confectioners give life to batches of batter by whipping up cakes and cupcakes to customers’ specifications. Lil’ Bella’s resident baker, armed with an inspiration board of sketches and ideas, confers with patrons to create designs for any occasion including birthdays, bachelorette parties, and sock-puppet Civil War reenactments. Uniformed batter-base fills up cake pans before heading into the oven and emerging as 12 tasty confections ready for decoration with sprinkles, dragées, or one-color fondant shapes. Cupcakes can be upgraded to jumbo sizes (add $0.30/cupcake) to help satiate children with Andre the Giant–size stomachs.
A personalized cake ($7–$12/serving), from traditional circular forms to specialty carved shapes (for an additional fee), comes to spongy life from vanilla, chocolate, or marble batter with an accompaniment of vanilla, chocolate, or fruit filling. Though 2-D décor comes standard on freshly baked cakes, which nestle on a provided cake drum, dessert enthusiasts can choose to beef up confections with add-on accents such as delicate sugar flowers ($2.50+) and hand-molded toppers. Basic cakes start at about $250 for a minimum of 30 people.
