Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones, while those who live in cake houses should avoid impulsive midnight snacking. Enjoy freestanding sweets with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of baked goodies at Nack's Desserts.
Owner Jackie "Nack" Harris whips up her old-fashioned treats via homegrown recipes and panache passed down through generations. Tasty menu items such as pies ($13.50 and up), bars ($15–$20 per dozen), cookies ($12–$15 per dozen), kolaches ($1.25 each), breads ($7.00 per loaf), and more are made in-house, each pairing deliciously with fresh-brewed coffee. Dessert Bits ($9 per dozen) are petite pastries packed with fillings such as peach cobbler, pecan, and sweet potato and are excellent for noshing or smashing into the faces of bite-sized frenemies and full-grown singing raisins. Arrive at a holiday party bearing treats without spending hours in the kitchen by picking up a family favorite such as Auntie Lou Lou's coconut-pineapple cake, "Party Over Here" rum cake, 7-Up pound cake, or butter rolls—pie crusts rolled up with butter, sugar, and spices, and then baked in a custard sauce.
Soonlyweds can consult Nack about a custom, never-frozen, freshly made wedding cake ($2.75 per serving, plus delivery and setup fees). Unbetrothed cake connoisseurs can fill holes in their lives or faces with sensations of smooth red velvet, luscious tres leches, or bubbly-laced champagne carrot ($34 and up). Special orders require a minimum of 72 hours' notice.
Five Yahoo! Locals give Nack's Desserts an average of five stars.
