Although we will not be making decorated cakes, we WILL continue to make cake squares and cupcakes, which are baked fresh daily and topped with our made from scratch icing. We are excited to offer more cupcake options of flavors, fillings, icings and designs. We will also have new Super Sized long johns and glazed donuts available for parties and events, as well as our fondant iced butter cookies which customers can order custom designed.
