"Everything is scratch-made," owner Kim Young said. "There's no boxes here. The only box is the one you leave with."

Some bakeries use "boxes" of frozen dough and pre-baked cakes instead of mixing their own dough and batter, she said. Customers know the difference.

"I can taste a cake that came from a box," Young said. "Very few people scratch-bake anymore."

For customers like Randy Hilburn, president of Westerra Development, who bought a box of cinnamon rolls Wednesday morning, the extra effort is worth it.
