Their Hawaiian rolls are to die for, but we’re here to talk about dessert!  So, their cakes are to die for, love their rainbow cake and chocolate. Fluffy, moist, goodness. Pretty much all of their desserts are great though.

  • Okay, so not sure why, but we’re kind of obsessed with Bundt cakes  (well, maybe we know why…they are beautiful and delicious!)
