Tracey told me about a great wedding cake special running at Grand Cakes right now. A wedding cake that feeds 85 people can be delivered for $150. Just contact Grand Cakes any time in February or March for the deal.
Today, Tracey brought in chocolate chip cookies, white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, a cheesecake, red velvet cupcakes, white cupcakes with strawberry filling AND a warm apple pie. I'm in a bit of a sugar coma right now.
For Dessert Wars, Grand Cakes plans to offer a dark chocolate hazelnut truffle. Yum!
