Wedding Cakes / Sweet Treats
We work with talented local pastry chefs that earn raves for their ultra creative use of flavors. Willabys feels that it is more personal to feature a quirky custom flavor for you like mint mojito or chocolate tomato. We get our flavor inspirations from what you like best. Whether you are searching for a traditional flavor combination featuring the highest quality ingredients or a more esoteric, custom flavor, we walk you through the process to ensure your dessert is unique to YOU! Wedding cake will be the last thing people taste so it better be MEMORABLE! If you want to add a dessert station or edible favors, consider petit fours, hand painted shortbreads, 24 carat gold dusted truffles, salted caramel apples or one of our other creative options. Call us today so we can create your own personal sugar rush!
