Wait, who’s Molly? Miss Molly was Founder Johnny’s third-grade teacher and an awesome cupcake baker! In honor of Molly as a way to help children, a portion of profits is donated directly to schools in the community. From their famous center-filled cupcakes to a fun sprinkles station, life is sweet at Molly’s. Grab a cupcake (or two), a few treats, and you’ll be smiling from ear-to-ear.
Tying the knot soon? Pastry Chef Mary Winslow has been baking up wedding cakes for decades. Couples can choose from lace, basket weave, ribbon flowers, or other timeless designs. Or if you have something particular in mind, go with a custom design. Tack on some “ugly truffles” and “damn good cookies” and you’ll be in heaven on your special day.
