When it comes to cakes, this outfit knows the right ingredients and presentations. While my favorite is the coconut pineapple, the carrot cake is divine. Had it as a wedding cake in 2016, and the top did not make it to freezer for one year storage. Thes cakes are what dreams are made of. Delicious

So delicious! My daughter got a cupcake chocolate with chocolate icing and I got a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie, both were amazing. The Decor is super cute and it's nice and spacious with very friendly staff. The chai tea was really good also.

Stopped in to see what sweet might catch my eye, I found there were a few sweets that made my eyes dance. I had the red velvet cupcake, it was ok but it was missing something. I think it was the icing was not cream cheese so it gave the cupcake a different taste. My friend had the vanilla cupcake... More

Big hunk slices of thickly frosted cakes, the usual flavors plus red-and-white (If you can't decide between red velvet and buttercream) lemon butter and strawberry layer. Not the greatest cake I've ever had but if you want some layer cake comfort food (also cheesecake, cupcakes), this will satisfy the urge. Comfortable, spacious, cutely decorated space. A great place to start... More

Great cakes! They just melt in your mouth. If you're in Harlem, that's a place you can't miss. You won't regret it! Plus the staff is so nice. :-)
