1. What are my filling choices?Our flavors rotate with the seasons and can range from pastry cream to chocolate ganache. Our fruit flavors vary by season in order to offer the freshest taste, however we are able to make most flavors any time of year.
2. Do you work with fondant or buttercream?We mostly work with buttercream because good quality taste is our specialty. However, we are able to do fondant cakes if there is a design that requires it.
