Stop by for a cookie or call in your cake order and you're likely to chat directly with Abigail Langlas, owner of Cake Works. Once a pastry chef at Alan Wong's, she's built her business on custom specialty cakes and cupcakes made from her own recipes. A quick glance at the impressive online photo album tells you there's not much that will be too challenging for Abigail to create. Some ideas: a pink Cadillac, a Louis Vuitton bag or an elegant wedding cake. The most difficult choice, of course, will be flavors: red velvet, chocolate hazelnut crunch and chocolate raspberry mousse are best sellers. Located across from the Humane Society. Open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. (5 on Sunday). Cakes priced from $10.50 and up.
