My husband has a dairy allergy so this is my go to place for almond cookies which are really delicious. Slightly chewy and coated in almond slivers. They are a little pricey but worth it. I've gotten some other baked goods here too which were all good. They have baking classes too.

While shopping in the area, we stopped in for some goodies. The bakery front is very small- not much room to eat your treats. Seems like this is a place you just order special cakes etc, pick up and leave. Their bakery case wasn't super impressive or attractive - a bunch of stuff sort of tossed in with smalls signs...

Whenever we are in the area, we return to get some Man Cookies! Giant, delicious, high quality chocolate chip cookies with chocolate ganache sandwiched in between - perfect for sharing with a glass of cold milk! Always recommended!! Also tried a s'mores bar, a large wedge of sweetness - a layer of graham cracker crust, a layer of toffee, a... More

Went in for a cupcake. They have the cutest cupcakes, cookies, and all kinds of desserts. The smell is delicious. I recommend a quick stop for a yummy treat.

Went to the Hello Kitty event (ie - debacle) and bailed after a few minutes. My little daughter was bent on a cupcake, so we stopped in here at Fancy Cakes. Their selection is great. Their staff is friendly and courteous. But the $4 cupcakes are miniscule. For $4 I'd expect something larger than what I can easily make at... More

Man cookies are tremendous! We bought 6 cupcakes - good frosting that is not too sweet. Jenna gave us excellent service!

Yes, they have beautiful cakes. But we always pay them a visit when we're in town for the Man Cookies!!! It sounds so simple, most people can make yummy chocolate chip cookies. But these are almost beyond yummy - I'm serious. I'm not getting paid or getting free cookies (I wish!) I wouldn't sing its praises if it weren't true.... More

I never expected the wedding cake to taste like at this bakery. It was a waste of money, a cake for the picture only. I could not stop apologizing in front of my guests. It was too dry, too sweet, too boring and too expensive. I don't even have a comparison to make. It was my mistake too, I didn't... More

Placed an order as out of state. Not friendly and did not follow through on an order and requirements. For their prices they should be professional and be on top of their of work; which they are not by any means.

While not a restaurant, there are many small things that you can take away to munch from this bakery. The true stars are the cakes and you should go in just to see them. We ordered one for my wife's birthday and it was simply spectacular - beautiful, creative and tasty. She and most of our guests are still talking... More
