Some cakes get so decorated that they cease to resemble cakes any more. They might be pretty, but you wonder what had to be done to make the fondant no longer look like food. Dacapo's cakes manage to be beautiful and still look like cakes. The bakery, which has been serving the Heights for 15 years, uses fondant occasionally, but is much more likely to use rich, luxurious icing on simple but high-quality cakes. Choose from unusual flavors as well, like chocolate strawberry delight, banana split, pear and pumpkin maple cream.

At RJ Goodies in Spring, the owners say the best part of operating a bakery is "watching the children in our community grow up through the cakes that we create each year for them." The bakery specializes in cute children's birthday cakes with fun decorations and illustrations. They encourage people to bring in photographs or simply give them a theme, and they'll take it from there, creating works of art out of butter, sugar and food coloring.
