Capital City Bakery

It’s all vegan, all the time at this award-winning bakery. What started as an at-home venture for owner Kristen Davenport evolved into a food trailer, and eventually found a charming teal storefront with a white picket fence to call home.

Sugar Mama's Bakeshop

Renowned for its cupcakes — the bakers won Food Networks’ Cupcake Wars back in 2013 — Sugar Mama’s has tantalized the tastebuds of everyone from Weird Al Yankovic to Kanye West. The icing on the (cup)cake? All of the ingredients are preservative-free and locally sourced, and include fair trade cocoa, coffee, and sprinkles.

This is what buttercream dreams are made of. Sweet Treets’ custom confections can sometimes be so lifelike, it’s nearly impossible to make the first cut. 95 percent of the cakes coming out of this kitchen are covered in buttercream as opposed to fondant — a skill this bakery has refined to an art.
