No Filter Needed: Perfect Personalized TreatsOur favorite custom treat companies are as social media-savvy as they are sweet
Whether you’re planning a party or looking for a perfect thank you gift, personalized desserts always make a sweet statement. And thanks to some drool-worthy Instagram posts, we’ve noticed a delicious new trend: Women entrepreneurs launching quirky lines of customizable treats, from cupcakes to Krispie’s. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites finds, check them out below!
Jars by Dani: Since posting her first #JarsbyDani to Instagram only 7 months ago, Dani Beckerman has turned these almost-too-good-looking-to-eat layered desserts into a full-time business. The brightly colored treats come in five delicious options—Rainbow Bomb, Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter, Color Palette and Praise the Swirl—although you can submit your own customization ideas. Jars start at $40 for four 8oz. jars, or $50 for eight 4 oz. jars plus a $10 delivery fee in NYC (and a week’s notice).
SPOTS NYC: Founder Lily Brynes’ personalized bite-sized cupcakes have been spotted across the city since she launched the company in February. Choose between vanilla and birthday cake (both with buttercream frosting), and submit up to four photos to be added as cupcake toppers for a personalized touch (you can add more for an additional fee). Prices start at $22.50 plus a $10 to $20 delivery in Manhattan for a dozen.
Laceycakes: Jillian Toline’s nearly three-year-old company strives to make your basic cupcake a little sweeter and completely customized. They have two sizes (mini and standard), three icing flavors (vanilla, chocolate and cream cheese), and four cake flavors (yellow cake, chocolate cake, red velvet, and rainbow sprinkle confetti cake) to choose from, along with toppings like fondant designs, sprinkles and edible glitter. Cupcakes start at $10 + $10 delivery in NYC, but first-time customers can receive 20% off with the code “new14.”
Mister Krisp: We’ve been ooh-ing and ahh-ing over Jessica Siskin’s Mister Krisp creations since she started posting them to Instagram in October, curious what she is going to come up with next. After all, she’s created everything from Birkin bags to a cheeseburger-with-the-works made out of Rice Krispies cereal! It only takes Jessica a week to go from concept to delivery, and since it’s a completely custom business, prices typically range between $55-$250 depending on size and intricacy of design. Minis (like her adorable bagel and lox creation) usually come in minimums of a dozen, ranging from $30-$70 depending on the complexity of the design. —CASSIE KREITNER
