From East to West

Opened in 2011, Charm City Cakes West is the West Coast location of Duff's original Baltimore bakery.

Wall-to-Wall Cakes

Sample cakes adorn the wall of Charm City Cakes West. These are some of the elegantly decorated cakes, but the shop also offers the more out-of-the-box creations Duff's known for.

Endless Possibilities

Whether you're looking for a replica of the Capitol Records building or a cake bursting with blossoms, the cake bakers and expert decorators can make nearly anything you can dream up.

Creative Workspace

This is the space where the bakery's staff bakes and decorates cakes for the shop.

Decorating in Progress

This baker's rack holds cakes in the process of being decorated for the store as well as supplies.

Sweet Finishes

Pails of fondant and frosting, all in different colors, are available to the bakery's staff. And there's even Duff's own brand.

Final Touches

Ribbons in a variety of colors and patterns are available to decorate the cakes or boxes that go out for delivery. No detail is lost.

Get Into the Mix

Duff's Cakemix is located right next door to Charm City Cakes West. It's a bakery and a studio, where cake decorating professionals can help you design whatever confections you desire.

Goodies Galore

The whole idea behind Cakemix is DIY: do-it-yourself cakes and cupcakes. Come into the shop and design your own creations to take home.

With Sugar on Top

Whether you're looking to decorate with sanding sugar, sprinkles or dragees, Cakemix has an endless variety of toppings to choose from for beautifying cakes and cupcakes.

Celebrate with Lights

No birthday celebration would be complete without candles. Cakemix offers a classic selection, including number candles that are perfect for little kids' birthday parties.

Colorful Foundations

And what makes cake decorating possible? Clearly it's a foundation of buttercream, available premixed in a wide array of bright colors.

Everything at Your Fingertips

Here at the counter you can let your imagination run wild in creating your own sweet confections. All it takes is three steps: decide, decorate, then devour.

Ready to Take Away

But if you just can't decide, or you don't have the time to make your own creations, Cakemix is always stocked with whole cakes, cake slices and cupcakes to meet your needs.
