What's New
Did you know?

We use only the finest and freshest ingredients - including farm fresh eggs! Those who love our cakes know we're all about quality and we're excited to be able to promote this 'egg-cellent' news! And we have more great news! We now offer Mancini's bread! Stop by the store to see what's in stock or call to place an order. Please give us a minimum of 2 to 3 days notice on all orders for bread. Also, for your convenience, Hershey's Ice cream is available for purchase in store.

It's always a good idea to order early. We recommend custom orders be placed two weeks to a month in advance to guarantee availability. While most weeks we try to accommodate cake orders with a minimum of 48 hours notice, some weekends fill up fast. Not able to place an order in time? Stop by to see what unique cakes are available in store! We try our best to keep the store stocked with 8" sized birthday cakes featuring seasonal and festive designs. Our cake artists are always creating new designs weekly!

As of May 3, 2022, all Tiered Cake orders should be placed one to two months in advance. If you have any questions, you can always call us at 412-653-2236. Due to the large volume of orders, we can not guarantee availability. As always, we urge our customers to place their orders as soon as possible.

Please note, due to the rising cost of ingredients, so has our pricing. Price changes can be viewed online or call to speak with one of our associates.

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. Our company continues to grow and introduce some of the most creative desserts in the region!
