We love holidays here at Tiers of Joy, so this week we decided to start decorating for Halloween a little early this year. We have delicious and adorable cut-out sugar cookies in all sorts of Halloween and fall shapes, spooky cakes in our window display, and LOTS of pumpkin treats to get you in the fall spirit! 

skull cut-outs (ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, witch hats, etc. also available)

Check-out this super adorable onesie cake Chef Joyce made. What is your little one being for Halloween this year? 

Happy Spooktober, everyone!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who came to our 1 year celebration to decorate a sugar cookie, eat some free samples, and participate in our 3D cake drawing. We had a lot of fun celebrating with you and look forward to the year ahead!

Hi everyone! We just wanted to thank each of you for making Easter at the shop such a success! We were so happy to be able to contribute our efforts in making your cakes, pies, and cookies for your Easter and Passover celebrations. We are moving forward from all the lamb cakes and bunny cut-outs into a month of wedding shows. So be looking out for us this month at the local wedding events! Stop-by our table and say hello, grab a sample, and book those wedding cake tastings! We would be happy to sit down with you at the shop and discuss flavor and design to help you create your dream wedding cake. We just ask for 48 hours notice for a cake tasting! Thanks for being such awesome customers, and we'll see you all soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our most recent "field trip" to the Mendota Civic Center to participate in the bridal show this past Sunday! It was a great day, despite the icy conditions outdoors, and a really fun way to connect with some of you, our potential brides. We look forward to meeting with you to customize your beautiful and tasty wedding cakes. Remember you can call the store for a tasting anytime with 48 hours notice. Your guests will remember your delicious cake for years to come. In the meantime, here are some photos from our fun day!

Chef Joyce ready to help out the brides!

We survived our first week here at Tiers of Joy and are feeling good about what lies ahead. Thank you to everyone who came in and ordered cakes and tried our delicious desserts. We feel like we know you already (and what you like..cough chocolate chip cookies and cream horns cough) and cannot wait to get to know you better as the shop develops! Just in case you missed out on what we've been serving up, here's a little recap:
freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies
the ever-popular spice cupake
mmm lemon whoopie pies I said, just a quick re-cap of what we've been working on here at Tiers of Joy. Stop-in to try these and other treats! Oh yeah, and don't forget you can order your specialty cake at any time. Get inspired for a design on our photos section of the website, or stop-in to look at our several binders of cakes we've done in the past. Creativity is our specialty!

Welcome to Tiers of Joy, Inc.! The shop is a-buzz with mixers, the clanking of dishes, and the oven door opening and closing...

Pastry Chef Joyce O'Hare hard at work :)

Pastry Chef Joyce is working hard to create some delicious treats, and beginning next Tuesday, September 11th there will be an entire array of delights to buy, including cupcakes, eclairs, brownies, cookies, cakes and more each day! Stop-in at any time to order a special celebration cake (including a 3D creation), or place an order for something you've been craving but just haven't quite found the time to have two professionally-trained pastry chefs at your disposal to help you create your desserts.

Our hours are:
