Crystal Mooers has been decorating cakes for nearly three decades, including 15 years working as a cake decorator for large food chains. About seven years ago, she and her husband Steven decided to tap into the teamwork they'd honed raising five children together and started their own business: Just Cakes. Together, they provision parties of every sort with festively layered cakes.
Crystal festoons birthday sheet cakes with basic decorations or spruces them up with edible images, cutout shapes, or fondant designs. Her grooms' cakes express new husbands' interests, from cheering on a sports team to fixing up vintage cars to eating cake. Wedding-cake flavors, including butter pecan and red velvet, are spackled together with cheesecake mousse, peach-velvet topping, and other sweet fillings, creating multi-tiered masterpieces that realize newlyweds' confectionary dreams. She also shapes adult novelty cakes into risqué works of art for bachelor or bachelorette parties. To help hosts and hostesses put the finishing touches on their events, they rent out plate-topped columns, stands, pedestals, and fountains.
Just Cakes is a labor of love for the couple for reasons beyond their confectionary passions. They donate a percentage of the bakery's proceeds to help Crystal's sister pay her medical bills as she fights breast cancer.
With display cases brimming with a dozen or more cupcake varieties, the dessert chefs at The Sweet Tooth have deemed their shop a cupcakery. Made from scratch with fresh ingredients, regular flavors include a red velvet concoction called rouge, choc-o-mint, and vanilla vanilla, which comes crowned with a juicy maraschino cherry. Cookies harmoniously complement the cupcake selection, boasting seven varieties and barbershop-quartet-quality chops. The Sweet Tooth's blog keeps customers updated about seasonal flavors and the cupcake of the week, and the bakery also brings a touch of sweetness to the community by catering area events and partnering with local charities.
The bakery has joined up with mobile cupcake company, 3 Girls Cupcakes, whose cupcakes will be available at The Sweet Tooth's store location for an even larger assortment of flavors. Their mobile Cupcake Cruiser, meanwhile, delivers delectable eats around town.
