That Takes the Cake
Husband-and-wife team Keisha and Brian Williams, nostalgic for the basic confections crafted by their grandmothers, opened That Takes the Cake with the hopes of escaping back to that simplicity. Under Keisha’s capable command, a team of cooks brings playful accents to the treats as they bustle about the kitchen, baking and frosting by hand and grinding snowflakes down into flour. Out of the warm embrace of ovens emerge treats in unique flavors such as green-tea cake crowned with lychee buttercream and The Professor’s Favorite, a ginger and spice cake draped in lemon buttercream with a gentle tartness. Along with traditional cupcakes, Keisha also whips up variations on the sugary theme with a roster of filled cupcakes and cocktail cupcakes infused with a variety of libations.
