Hey there!

I’m Savannah - also known as “Nonnie”

Where does the name come from? It’s simply the name my nieces and nephews started calling me years ago!

Floral Watercolor Drawing

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina but have lived Greensboro, Kannapolis, and Salisbury. I moved to Southport back in January 2020 and have loved it here!

Did you go to culinary school?

I actually never went to culinary school! I did get my bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship from UNC Greensboro. Who knew that was a thing?!

Not me!

So when did the baking come into play? I worked in 2 bakeries in college - one in Greensboro and one in Salisbury. I learned almost all my baking and decorating in these places.

What did you do before this?

Before this, I worked at State Employees Credit Union as a Senior Financial Services Representative.

What’s your favorite dessert?

Ironically, I’m not a sweets person. Leave the cake, I’ll take chips and salsa or fries! I can smash a bag of chips in one sitting.

If I HAD to pick a dessert, I would choose ice cream or a cookie.

The Floral Wall

The floral wall - or the “La Vie en Rose” wall - has a special significance. The phrase means “life in pink” or “life in rose colored glasses”. As fitting as it is for the shop, this was also a song my dad and I always loved - it was our song! We were incredibly close. He passed away suddenly from COVID in 2021.

This floral wall is dedicated to him and all his endless love and encouragement.

Custom Orders

All of our cakes are round with 4 layers of cake and 3 layers of icing. They are NEVER coated in fondant - instead we coat them in Italian Meringue Buttercream!

(see below for a list of the most popular flavors)

We offer single tier cakes as well as multi tier cakes (2+ tiers).

We can go as elaborate or as simple as you’d like! Sometimes customers like for us to go all out; other times, we can “set the scene” and you can provide toppers for us to place! We will always give you a final quote so you know exactly what to expect.

The best way to place an order for a cake is to send an email to with the date, servings needed, and any decoration ideas you may have! This allows us to see exactly what you’re envisioning and gives you the chance to talk directly to the owner (who is also the decorator). Plus, it keeps everything in writing! We will send you a digital menu and begin the quote based on whatever you want!

Cupcakes are a great way to feed a crowd! You can create more variety, have a great dessert spread, and give your guests the chance to grab what they want without taking the time to cut and serve a cake.

We offer regular and mini size cupcakes! We generally ask that our regular size be ordered in 1 dozen minimum per flavor, and our minis be in 2 dozen minimum per flavor.

If you need a last minute dessert or just want a variety of a few things, stop by the storefront and pick out whatever you like! We keep a variety of popular flavors daily.

cookies and other desserts

We have a variety of cookies, Rice Crispy Treats, mini cakes, cake jars, and other goodies we can make for your special occasion! Let us know if you’re interested in anything specific, and we will see what we can do!

Flavor lists

Listed below are 3 pages of flavors: Classic, Premium, and Deluxe. You are not limited to these flavors, they are just the most popular!

Pricing varies based on size, flavor, and decoration. We would be happy to send you a full menu with base pricing, sizes, and flavors. Just shoot us an email and we will send it over!

You have questions? We have answers!

What's the best way

to place an order?

Email is the best way to place an order! With so many important details, we try to keep everything in one place so we don't miss anything. If you are unable to email, we recommend calling to set up an in-person consultation.

Can I just DM or

Facebook message you?

Because these platforms aren’t monitored throughout the day, messages can easily be missed. Email is the best way to place an order; calling is best for any quick questions!

I need a cake! Is it too late to order?

Generally, 2+ weeks notice will secure your date, but we always encourage you to inquire regardless of the timeframe because if we can do it, we absolutely will! Unfortunately, we just cannot promise anything without a 2+ week notice.

Do you make sheet cakes?

No, we do not make sheet cakes. All of our cakes are round. BUT that doesn’t mean we can’t feed your crew! We have lots of ideas on how to make the most of your desserts. Send us an email with any details you have, and we can help you figure out the best course of action!

Do you have a storefront open to the public? Do you have things for purchase?

Yes! We do have a storefront. We have cupcakes, cookies, and other delicious goodies that you are welcome to walk-in and purchase. Most of the time, we do not have cakes regularly in stock. Cakes are generally custom ordered (unless it’s a holiday and we have some pre-decorated ones).

Do you make wedding cakes?

We do make wedding cakes! Check out our wedding section of the website for more information, or feel free to email us!

Are your cakes coated in fondant?

Big NOPE! All of our cakes are 4 layers of cake, 3 layers of icing, and are coated in a silky, smooth Italian Meringue Buttercream. We may occasionally use fondant for decoration, but we never coat the entire cake in fondant.
