Standing out on King Street is a sweet oasis that offers an array of taste bud-friendly treats. Custom delights and desserts come in epic style and flavor at Cake Works, where talented professionals have been baking luscious delicacies every day since opening in 2008.

“We have a lot of unique and custom items available,” says chef and owner Abigail Langlas. “Lots of things we make (consist of) island-inspired flavors, as well as French-inspired.”

Offering cakes, macarons, cupcakes and more, the bakery takes care of all your sweet temptations. The shop also specializes in gluten-free products and offers various treats for special occasions.

With Mother’s Day coming up, keep an eye out for Cake Works’ decadent chocolate-covered strawberry cheesecake.


Don’t go “nuts” this tax season — instead, try something “nutty” at Cake Works. Right now, you can get a few bites of Nutter Butter Sandwich Cookie ($2), an irresistible treat made with two crunchy peanut butter cookies sandwiched together with peanut butter butter cream in the middle. Or you can be enchanted by Magic Bar ($2.50), a heavenly concoction of coconut, walnuts and chocolate chips caramelized together with sweetened condensed milk, all atop a homemade graham-cracker crust.
