“Love takes many forms but we think dessert is one that’s universal.”
-Peter Jacob, The Cakabakery

Above all, we believe in love. Our business is founded on it; the love and passion for what we do and those around us is the foundation for everything we create. When we love, we do it with style, grace, and vision. When you ask us to create something to celebrate your love; the love of your life, your child, your family, your best friend or a special occasion – we put our very best into every bit of flour, eggs and sugar.

I do;

We have helped create surprises, special proposals and designed dreamy wedding cakes. We have had the pleasure of witnessing incredible intimacy first-hand in the bakery with one in-shop proposal (and have had our hand in a slew of others – seven to be exact!), and four weddings that have taken place right here in the shop.

The live proposal came in the form of decorated cupcakes hidden in our “you build up my heart” themed window display. The display included several tiny white figures with white construction gear: trucks, cranes and all, working together to build a brick-clad, heart shaped cake. The cupcakes bearing the letters spelling “will you marry me” were nestled into the display. The couple approached the window and the gentleman pointed at the display. She nodded and walked by. He guided her back to the window to take a closer look where, of course, she smiled, noted that she really loved the idea and walked toward the door. He finally said “Please look a little closer”, she did. She decoded the hidden message and cupped her hands to her mouth, tears welling up in her eyes. He knelt, she gasped… they hugged. She agreed.

Michelle Baker, assistant baker to Jason, was the very first bride weeks before the official public opening in 2012; no fairy tale could tailor a better blessing or christening for the bakery. The weddings took place in our quaint courtyard strewn with lights or under the beautiful natural lighting of the greenhouse portion of our shop. Peter and Jason have stood witness in two of the ceremonies.

Being able to share beauty, joy, love, and celebration with family and friends is the absolute foundation for The Cakabakery. We suspect this is a big reason why, when you walk through the doors, you can feel it; the magic. It’s a collective effort of the love of many, and our ability to foster that love by being a part of these special moments.

One of the best sounds in the bakery is the bell above the door. A little jingle that has a touch of whimsey; every time I hear it, I know I’m about to look up and see the familiar warmth in the eyes of a gaze set on our display. You know the look, when you can see a mouth watering, eyes glazing over, a little curious smile or, on the face of a child, an unbridled grin.

Often children are brought into the bakery for a treat, for so many reasons, but I believe it’s because it is truly even sweeter to see a child light up when their small hands gasp a treat, handed to them by someone they adore.

We get to see the joy of children dreaming a birthday cake with their parents, the kindness of a brother sending cupcakes to his sister who needs a little cheering up, the thoughtfulness of a granddaughter who wants to bring her grandmother her favorite kind of pie, or a husband coming in minutes before we close on his way home from work, to bring his wife a cookie just to make her smile.

Other times, the door jingles and the opposite generation walks in; a mother and daughter, seasoned in life, enjoying an afternoon together. Both taking a break from their families or their jobs to come together to catch up and to share the warmth of the bakery during our blustery winter. Or a son coming in each week for the same order, a box of cookies to bring to his parent’s home while visiting.

YUM! Butter Cookies!

YUM! Butter Cookies!

Cupcakes are popping out of the kitchen every two minutes... yikes!

Kids like cupcakes. Fact.

We want to celebrate the love of family this Valentine’s week. They are the people who know us best, the good and the bad, who have watched us grow and have given us guidance through life. They will become the people we have known the longest throughout our entire lives. Let your family know you cherish them with a sweet gesture. All of our baked goods are made from scratch with the freshest possible ingredients because we wouldn’t bake anything that’s not the very best!

It’s almost here! It’s that time of year when everything becomes decorated with little hearts, and every blend of white and red will pop out of window displays and doorways. Soon sweet little notes will float back and forth in classrooms and offices. People will put on those spring loaded headbands to make hearts dance above their heads.

Show your gratitude and love for the teachers, postal workers, snow plow drivers, hairdressers, day care providers, and anyone one else who touches your life, with a dessert from our bakery.

With $2 cookies, you could walk out the door with an armload to hand out; or for $2.50 show your love with a beautifully decorated cupcake. Of course if they’re an All Star, we can help you special order a cake, or walk away with one of our ready made cakes for $30! And our cookie dough, Love’s ice cream, and unique gifts would surely make someone feel very special.
