Ordering Update - November 8, 2021
Due to limited staffing, we recommend custom orders be placed two weeks in advance to guarantee availability. We do not have the staff to fulfill same day orders, and weekend availability for orders is limited during the holiday season. Please be aware of holiday deadlines. We do not offer shipping at this time and are booked for deliveries until January.

While shopping in the store, we encourage our customers to follow the CDC guidelines. In order to help with social distancing, we encourage our customers to place their orders on-line or over the phone. We also encourage those whom have placed holiday orders to utilize the scheduled dates for our early morning order prepaid pick up lines (it saves you the wait in store). Look for the signs in front of the building.

We hope we can continue to make your lives a little bit sweeter during this time and as always, we appreciate your patronage.

A Unique Bakery

Since April 9th, 2004 we have been providing the Pittsburgh area with high quality cakes, pastries, cookies and more. We bake with only the finest, freshest ingredients and specialize in customized cakes. This distinction has landed us a partnership with the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Our company continues to grow with an addition being completed in the Fall of 2019, more than doubling the size of our store. We also launched our on-line ordering, which features over a dozen types of cookies, pastries, cupcakes and over 100 cakes! Learn more about us.
