We had the opportunity to make Katie's birthday cake this year. Her husband called in yesterday and asked if we made Black Forest Cherry (BFC). Guess what ... we do!
Milli can make just about anything; even if it's not a regular cake flavor. And cakes are made by special order only so patrons can make requests from quite an extensive menu.
One of the delights of our BFC cake are the dark chocolate chips that are baked into the cake. I don't quite know how it happens, but they melt and mesh perfectly for taste when the cake is complete and being enjoyed. I suppose it's just chocolate doing what it's made to do - make you feel in love, loved and lovely!
Black Forest Cherry is one of our most-popular special request flavors. We make our BFC with cherries inside and on top with buyer's choice of whipped cream, butter cream or cream cheese frosting. Katie's cake has whipped cream.
We made BFC with butter cream cupcakes with gold liners for a 50th anniversary party not too long ago. They were a big hit.
Above left shows the filling and on the right is the cake after the top layer has been placed.
Below left is the crumble being added. The right was a practice run for writing on the cake board because I haven't done it in a while. I know how to do a decent portion of what my mom does, but I only do it when necessary. I generally prefer doing things such as posting her delicious creations on this blog.
At last ... handing it over to another satisfied customer. This was his first time at our shop so we gave him a sample of the cake from the cut ends. He said we may be seeing more of him in the future than we expected. That's what we love to hear!
Remember us when you need a dessert that tastes spectacular for an event or get together. We'd love to provide the icing on the cake ... or cupcakes!
We love making logo cupcakes!
Some of the Eastern WA Sprint retail stores - Columbia Ctr. Dr., Kennewick, Yakima Valley Hwy, Sunnyside and Alder St., Walla Walla - have contracted us to make the desserts for their Customer Appreciation Days. And let me tell ya' ... they know how to throw a good party.
At Christmas, the Kennewick store partnered with a local radio station and gave away toys. They invited us to hang out and brought in a photo booth, too.
This month the Sunnyside store offered free face painting in addition to our delicious cupcakes.
If your business is looking for logo treats, call us! We offer a discount for large orders and can deliver, too. We also put logos on sugar cookies for those with a larger budget. Cookies can be individually wrapped for grab and go service for your customers and marketing contacts.
Logo desserts are great for school and sporting events, graduations, birthdays, retirement — or just about any type of gathering you can plan. Give Milli a call for a quote or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look through our gallery and posts for examples of sweet treats we've done before; and don't forget our Facebook page which has 1000s of cake, cupcake and cookie pics from over the years.
They say when life give you lemons, make lemonade. Well, lemonade is good but if you're a baker ... you make a cake!
A delicious and lightly flavored lemon cake with lemon and cream cheese filling, topped with snow white buttercream icing and lemon drizzle. Yum!
Do you see those big blocks of butter over there?! Yes, sweeties, this cake is homemade, handmade and full fat. Just like in the good old days before frozen and grocery desserts were everywhere. Haha!
I don't know about you, but that's the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it.
I always say food/eating is a love language. Technically it's Acts of Service, but I know for sure Milli loves preparing delicious eats for and feeding others. And she put a lotta love into this one. I'm a witness.
We make cakes by special order only so if you're in need of a homemade, handmade dessert for an upcoming event, please give us a call at 302-0364 or email for a quote to email@example.com.
Well, sweeties ... it's Fall and officially Pumpkin Spice season. Good news for you! Milli's moist and delicious Pumpkin Spice cookies are back on the menu for a limited time.

I'm a wild one, it's true.

Hey, sweeties 😀
Did you know Milli makes the most-delectable Sweet Potato cupcakes in the world?! Well ... she does, and they're so amazing they've become one of our bestsellers. So you know what that means, right? These tasty treats are no longer a specialty cupcake, they're a regular flavor.
We had a special order for a dozen a few weeks ago, and that was what tipped the scale in their favor. When they consistently sell out AND are ordered by the dozen to guarantee a customer gets as many as they want ... we realized we'd better keep them on hand.
Look at those plump, moist cupcakes. And the freshly made sweet potato filling peeking out. I went to the grocery store and bought the sweet potatoes that made it. Ha! Bet you thought I was gonna say I made it. Nope. I have more patience for eating than I do for baking so I only bake when absolutely necessary. I decorate regularly, but when it comes to waiting for and paying attention to an oven timer ... let's just say I'm highly distractable.
The dozen above went out to the order, and another half dozen went out to a special friend of mine. She inboxed me when she saw that we would have these on hand the next day, and asked for six to be set aside. She was at the shop waiting when I arrived. 😂
As she ate one she said that may have been THE BEST cupcake she'd ever eaten. And I'll just note that she and her mother are pretty spectacular bakers themselves. We don't take that accolade lightly.
Regular cupcakes are $3/ea and $30 for a dozen. Now through 10/6/18 I'm offering one dozen Sweet Potato cupcakes for $27. Order must be prepaid and requested at least 24 hours in advance. Might be a good idea to order for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's now. Email Milli at email@example.com with SWEET POTATO SPECIAL in the subject line or call 302-0364. Delivery charges extra.
Everybody loves sugar cookies. They're a perfect treat for corporate events and customer appreciations. Last month we made these for Columbia Electric Supply in Pasco.
A few years ago we made these for WSU Tri-Cities and have since had orders for Cougar grads and fans.
With your logo, name, photo or something we design for you, sugar cookies are delicious option for all your sweet needs. We'd love to brighten up your dessert - or dining room - table with our sugar cookies.
Give Milli a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org for quotes. Large orders need to be placed and paid for at least seven  days in advance. View more of our sugar cookies on the gallery page of this site.
I went on a Cupcake Adventure yesterday. It was supes fun. 😊
I chose our Fourth of July Flash cupcake for my evening dessert. Since I hadn't eaten dinner when I got it, I had to distract myself so I didn't indulge before the proper time. So ... I took the delicious-smelling treat with me on my route home and Instagram was the perfect journal. ^Z

We love love and we love weddings!!
Here's The Armstrong Wedding from January 27, 2018, held at Tucannon Cellars, 40504 Demoss Rd., Benton City. Simple and elegant, we were honored to have been a part of their special day.
We catered the eats and made the sweets. Yes, folks ... we can do both so keep us in mind for upcoming events. Just send Milli and email to @email@example.com for a quote.
Cheers to love and congratulations to The Armstrongs!! ❤️
This is slow-cooked pork butt. Hehehe ... that makes me laugh. Wish you could smell it.
Yasss, it's going down at Cupcakes Bakery & Deli this week! I guess summer has everyone wanting BBQ so we're giving you what you want. There's also beef brisket cooking right now, too. 😀
We're serving up pulled pork sandwiches, rice and beans, potato salad, cole slaw, mac & cheese, collard greens, black-eyed peas ... all that. The brisket is one of the choices on the soul food platter. Check out our Uber Eats menu for details.
And don't forget the cupcakes. We've got Boston Cream, Red Velvet, Just Plain Vanilla, Double Chocolate - which can be turned into Triple Chocolate by adding chocolate sprinkles and syrup - and Dr. Pepper (one of my personal faves).
Does any of this sound tasty to you? Just curious.
