Let’s celebrate Mom!

“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever”. The above words could not be more true. Mothers are the one person in our lives who love us unconditionally, cheer us on, and are a shoulder to lean on. And the greatest thing about mothers is that even though there are…

A Cake Story

Have you ever wondered just how we create the beautiful, custom cakes at the shoppe? So much creativity and logistics go into designing an occasion cake, from color coordination to structural support. Here is the life cycle of a cake, told in pictures, from beginning to end!

The first step to any cake order is the conversation with the customer. This step is super important to us because it is when we get to hear your story and learn about you! We are there from the very beginning to help you choose flavor, design, size, and everything else that will make your cake perfect. Once we hash everything out, the order is sent to the back for preparation!

Looking back…


The holidays in my house have always been a time of hustle and bustle, festivities with family and friends, cold weather and warm hearts, and chatter and cheer!  Along with all the wonderful things that the holidays bring comes a welcome “calm after the storm”.  As December wraps up and begins to wind down I always look forward to the new year and what it may hold.  It’s a fresh start, a new beginning, and I’ve always found it exciting to ponder what the future may hold for me and the “what’s to come?” that only a flip of the calendar and the promise of a new year can bring.  It is during this time…during that little bit of peace and quiet  just before we head back to work and back to our normal routines that we can not only look forward with excitement and anticipation at what the new year promises but also take a moment to look back.
