About Piece 'a Cake

"'We’re doing about 200 weddings a year and thought, 'What else can we throw into the mix?' Terry said. 'And then we came up with the idea of selling specialty cupcakes and coffee. Instead of spending a lot of money on an elaborate cake, customers can now grab some cupcakes to go.'"
