Daddy Cakes Story by Vilay Luangraj • Photography by Jason Dailey
Have you ever wanted a cake, perhaps a cupcake, created just as you fancied? Daddy Cakes, one of Topeka’s newest sweet spots, will make your fancy an indulgent reality. In the heart of Gage Shopping Center—the clock tower marks its spot—Daddy Cakes is a retro-inspired storefront with photos and paintings of cupcakes on the walls and mouthwatering delights in the display case. The cupcakes come in four varieties: baby cakes, daddy cakes, preemie cakes and skinny cakes. The baby cakes are regular-size cupcakes, while the 12-ounce daddy cakes are twice that size. Preemie cakes are two-bite cakes, mostly made for events and receptions. The skinny cakes contain fewer than 200 calories and 0 grams of fat—an excuse to eat more than one if you wish.
