High Desert Daily
(Apple Valley)– At The Cake Shop you will find a wide selection of 3D shaped cakes, signature cupcakes, éclairs, cream puffs, cannolis, chocolate dipped strawberries, cookies, pies, dessert cakes, coffee, cheese pocket with cherries, bran muffins, carrot muffins, chocolate croissants, Danishes, and various other deserts. Their Chocolate Covered Strawberries are also a great idea for a romantic evening with Champagne.
The Cake Shop has been in serving the High Desert for the past 6 years, and has opened their Apple Valley shop one year ago. The owner and Master Cake Decorator for The Cake Shop, Janice Miller takes pride in each individual desert that is crafted at her shop and has a background of 25 years. Her son Kyle Miller is the Master Artist for the 3D design cakes. They are very a happy to operate a family oriented shop which employs 10 local employees.
Speaking from a local perspective, a Cake Shop of such high quality was definitely needed in the High Desert. The Décor and Ambiance is reminiscent to that of an Upscale Italian Café. If you’re in the area: it’s also a great place to relax and have some coffee.
The Cake Shop has various cake flavors ready for same day pick up that price from $19.99. Some of these mouth water flavors include chocolate mousse, black forest, Strawberry Boston cake, and Neapolitan.
Apart from their same day pick up deserts, they have the most magnificent lavishly designed wedding cakes. If you are planning a wedding, then the Cake Shop is a must for your wedding Cake. You can choose from the 2 large wedding books or you can customize your design with Janice.
An exclusive designed Cake from The Cake Shop will surely impress your wedding reception guests. It’s also a good idea for those individuals who aren’t hiring a wedding planner because Janice is more than willing to customize the cake according to the décor of the event venue.
Another specialty desert I found out of the ordinary was the Topsy Turvy Cakes. The top layer of the cake is very deceiving to the eyes and seems as if it’s going to fall!
The Cake Shop has cakes for all occasions including Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter,. What I liked the most was the 3D Fish Cake for Father’s Day and the Purse Shaped Cake for Mother’s Day. They have three large design books just for baby showers, which only feature their own designs.
The Cake Shop is also a great place for businesses to pick up a party platter with cookies or brownies. It’s a great alternative to the bland generic items we tend to pick up at our grocer. It’s also a great place to pickup up healthier treats such as Bran Muffins. They also specialize in graphics and can put your company logo on the Cake. Another great feature at The Cake Shop was is that they use zero trans fat products. If you don’t have time to pick up your orders, The Cake Shop will also deliver the items to your business or venue.
A special feature for anyone with children featured at The Cake Shop is Cupcake Corner, where they can design their own cupcakes. It’s also a good alternative for after school activities. The Signature Cupcake flavors include but aren’t limited to black and white, Neapolitan, apple spice, red velvet, banana nut, carrot craze, chocolate coconut, lemon drop, pumpkin spice, and chocolate peppermint. These cupcakes are made with the best ingredients and are a great alternative to cakes, if you want to individual treats only.
The Cake Shop is a great idea for anyone who wants to impress their guests with elegant and unique designs which they will remember for years to come. There are various deserts featured at The Cake Shop which aren’t available anywhere else, such as bran muffins and chocolate covered strawberries. It truly is a hidden treasure in the High Desert. For any occasion which requires desert, The Cake Shop is where I’ll go!
