Q | What are the most popular types of cakes?
A | Vanilla Bean Cake with Raspberry or Chocolate with Ganache are our most popular cake flavors.
 
Q | What’s the most unique/creative cake you’ve ever made for a customer?
A | The great part of our business is our ability to create a cake unique to each customer’s needs. It is difficult to choose just one, but one of the most challenging this year has been the 1941 Plymouth car Megan made for a 90th birthday party.
 
Q | Which cafe sandwich/panini is the most popular?
A | Our Tuna Melt is off the charts, and the Italian is a close runner up.
 
Q | What’s the story behind the business? Have you always had a love for baking?
A | We’ve been in the same location for 17 years and seen this neighborhood grow and flourish! It was started by Brian Hotopp who had a love for baking and saw a great potential in the Short North area. He worked hard to create delicious cakes, cookies and treats as well as elaborate wedding cakes. Over the years we established a great reputation and following. I joined the business 7 years ago with a love for baked goods and making people happy. It has been 2 1/2 years since I purchased the bakery and we are growing more each day. I enjoy working with locally-owned businesses to incorporate their products in ours. We make a Watershed Bourbon Apple Pie, Brothers Drake Voodoo Hotshot Tart, North Market Spices Vanilla Bean cakes and more. Working together is important to me and I started a group of bakeries that can collaborate with and promote each other to focus on our specialities. We are fortunate to have many bakeries in town making a lot of unique and delicious goodies. Why not share the love? ;)

    • Having visited The Piece of Cake, we know that everything is as yummy as it is tempting to the eyes. Never have we eaten any treats from any bakery that are so delicious. The Short North is lucky to have bakeries of your quality.
