Helfer's Bakery is a bakery of choice for birthday cakes. The cakes are always fresh and super moist. While there, I typically try a few of their sweet treats in the display case. Customer service has always been great!

The best pasteries this side of the Mississippi. The pies are above average and the cream puffs are even better.
