A Cake Shop That Looks Like a CakeCharly's Bakery is something of a local icon — and with its festive façade, it's pretty hard to miss. After all, if you're going to sell cupcakes, might as well look like one. Behind the frothy pink exterior you'll find trays upon trays of Cookie Monster cupcakes, lopsided Mad Hatter's-esque multi-tiered cakes, and other confections galore. Surprisingly, the savory treats — the chicken and mushroom pie, for instance — are pretty good as well. Go for yourself to find out if the bakery is, per its claim, "mucking afazing."
