It's the only local in Brooklyn in fact, with this special formula.

Wanted by Allison Kave and Keavy Landreth both with the idea of create something unique and special but...Where to start with? They were in the business of food, but they was searching for a real novelty.


It appeared clear that in every corner of NYC there are cupcakes/bakery places and so what to add of special?

The two friends created this book for sharing with the readers some of their most beloved recipes.


The book will introduce you wagons of fine desserts, with also the directions for create them perfectly, plus stunning cocktails for you and your friends.



Allison explains her passion for cookery, bakery and food. It happened when she was still a kid and growing up she tried to develop this passion in a work. Kave wrote also another book: "The first prize pies."
