This bakery's heart is in specialty and custom cakes, or so you'd gather from its vast online portfolio. (Maybe you'd also wonder, as I do, what's on those skewers?) By comparison the cookies and pastries can seem humdrum, but a poppy seed roll ($2) was plump and satisfying, if just a touch too sweet.
