Mayo Bowl

Back in March, we created and donated a cake for Jerod Mayo's 1st Annual Mayo Bowl, a bowling tournament fundraiser. The tournament was a great success and all the proceeds went to Pitching in for Kids!

The cake was a big hit too and we were happy to donate it to benefit such a great cause!

Those pins and that bowling ball - they're made out of chocolate! And the wood grain on the lane itself is hand-done!

Aida's 60th birthday cake is the focus of Featured Friday this week.

This fun custom cake was cut out in the shape of the numbers 6 and 0. The 6 was then decorated like a card table and the 0 like a roulette wheel. Add some rolled chocolate cards, chips and dice and I bet everyone at the party enjoyed this masterpiece!

Ginger Molasses Cookies

We talk about our decorated shortbread cookies a lot, but we have a variety of home style cookies available in our retail store and for order as well. So today for Tasty Tuesday, we're featuring our Ginger Molasses Cookies.

These cookies are a customer and employee favorite! Unlike ginger snaps, these are soft cookies that just melt in your mouth, and the bite of the ginger is nicely balanced by the sweet drizzle on top!
