serts does not have a storefront at the moment, but with all the yummy goodness that is created by owner & baker extraordinaire, Jessica Minisci, that is sure to change soon! Her website has a ton of pics of her previous creations and they are spectacular.
We sampled cupcakes from 3 or 4 other bakeries and none of them came close to these. Not only in taste, but also presentation. Other cupcakes we tried looked sloppy, did not taste great (despite having hundreds of flavor options) and their towers looked like they could fall apart at any moment (if they even offered them at all).
I contacted Jess and she was nice enough to drop off cupcakes to sample in the flavors of my choice. She was so helpful, flexible and accommodating throughout the entire decision making process and very responsive to all my millions of questions. She talked me out of purchasing a large expensive cupcake stand on Etsy and, instead, had 2 extra tiers added onto her existing tower so it would fit 200 cupcakes (at no extra charge)! She even made little chalkboard signs that sat on the tiers so guests knew what all the flavors were.
The tower looked ADORABLE when it was all set up! We could not get over it when we walked into the room and saw it...it looked so grand and was everything we hoped for and more! She made a small cake covered in white fondant (strawberry shortcake) to sit on the top tier so we could do the traditional cake cutting and then staggered the 4 cupcake flavors below - Nutella, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Vanilla Salted Caramel & Almond Coconut. They were delicious and our guests loved that they could just grab one off the display in between dancing.
The price was reasonable too and included delivery, set up, 200 cupcakes & the small cake. Other bakeries wanted to charge $7-$12 PER SLICE for a traditional cake. The cupcakes were around $3 each.
I highly recommend Desserts by Jess!!
