The CakeRoom is a place where you may come in and be surrounded by display cases full of cupcakes in every imaginable hue, counters stacked high with classic American layer cakes, and the seductive perfume of freshly made pies, cookies, bars, and squares just like Grandma used to make them. You will be flooded with childhood memories of birthday celebrations at which you couldn’t wait for the cake to be sliced so you could battle for the piece with the flowers on it.
Not only do they use the highest quality products, but we also prepare everything from scratch. We don’t use cake mixes or pre-made frostings because we believe that anything mass-produced lacks the care and attention that home-style baking is recognized for.

“My first time ordering from the Cake Room and I’m glad I did! I ordered the coconut cake and key lime coconut cupcakes for my husband’s birthday and he was very happy, all our guests loved the moist cake and cupcakes, which have a key lime filling I didn’t know about so it was a delicious surprise! My daughter also tasted a lavender lemon and a vanilla cupcake and she just loved both! This is definitely my go-to bakery.” – Fatima C.

“I highly recommend Sprinkles for anyone wishing to pre-order custom cupcakes for a special occasion! This was my first time ordering delivery with Sprinkles. I ordered about two days before the intended delivery date. It was easy to design the box, cupcake flavors, and lettering online. Sprinkles communicated with the recipient to deliver the cupcakes and the recipient received them on time. And, most importantly, the cupcakes were delicious. Large, moist, and flavorful. No regrets.” – Brittney S.
