Buttercream is a more traditional icing made with egg whites, butter, sugar, and shortening and is decorated with spatulas, pastry bags, and a variety of other tips.

Fondant can take the form of different textures, matte surfaces, pearls, or edible elements like gold and silver.

What are the prices for your cakes?
All cakes are priced at $4.50 per slice. The price may vary depending on the design. Unique drawings, tops, flowers, and other decorations are usually charged separately.
