Our main claim-to-fame is our crazy sculpted and special occasion cakes which have been featured in the Boston Globe, CNN, and on Food Network. We also have a cafe out front where we sell our cakes, cupcakes, pastries, and coffee and tea every day.

Cake Decorator duties include filling, frosting, and decorating our Gourmet buttercream cakes and cupcakes both for custom orders as well as stocking the store display case.   Simple fondant decorating such as making cupcake toppers and detailing our pre-set Designer cakes is also involved.  Advancement up to decorating more elaborate fondant-covered Custom cake designs and 3D gumpaste work is possible for the right creative person.

Frosting Maker duties include whipping up all our hand-made frostings on-site and from scratch fresh each week.
