Devour Desserts is a must-try dessert shop, with locations in South Jersey and Delco. Their desserts take creativity to new heights. I recently went to their South Jersey shop and the cake was so delicious I had to share it with you!

When owner Misty Solomon was a little girl, her love for creating started at home with her EZ Bake Oven and complete freedom in the kitchen. “I was lucky enough to have a mom who would let me bake at 2 am if I wanted,” said Solomon. She has a passion for making all things delicious. She is a self-taught chocolatier and baker, who has never taken a single class.

The business began in 2011 because Misty was annoyed by Edible Arrangements. She used them exclusively for client and team gifts. After years, she felt under-served as a customer. This business was more of a hobby that quickly caught Misty’s attention and interest than a business.

Over 10 years and two storefronts later, she and her incredible team of artists serve over 2000 customers a month in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. They’ve even been awarded Best of Gloucester County 5 years in a row and were named among The Best of The Best in South Jersey Magazine.

The award-winning bakery has locations in South Jersey and Delco. One in Mantua, NJ, and another in Aston, PA.

A Personal Note From The Author:

My birthday snuck up on me this year. Two days prior to my birthday (but likely less than a full 48 hours) it dawned on me that I did not have a birthday cake lined up. The thing is, I wanted a pretty specific style of cake; a pink one frosted in a vintage style. I contacted Devour Desserts as a long shot, but to my surprise, a decorator got back to me. With little to no direction from me, Devour Desserts pulled off exactly what I wanted, and made it even better by using edible glitter spray.

I got the cake of my dreams while giving this shop barely any notice. It felt like a Disney princess cake! They were accommodating, kind, and creative. The cake, might I add, tasted absolutely phenomenal as well. I got a confetti cake with vanilla buttercream.

The list below is not exhaustive, so you can check out their website and Instagram for more examples of their offerings!

    Here’s another dessert cup variation. Banana Split Cups feature strawberry cream, strawberry cake, pineapple mousse, vanilla cake, banana cream, chocolate cake, maraschino cherry cream, and brown sugar whipped cream. Sounds like a dream.

  • Getting In On The Eagles Hype

    If you want to celebrate your favorite team with something that tastes as sweet as victory, order an Eagles cake. This particular cake was made to celebrate the Super Bowl, but you can always order a general Eagles cake for some other game this upcoming season.

  • Phils Too

    “Ring the Bell” for these awesome looking Phillies cakes. They made the Phanatic look so lifelike. I bet he’d love these treats!

  • Pastel Rainbow FTW!

    This pastel rainbow with edible glitter spritzed on top is surely a beautiful treat. The included cupcakes provide good variety for people who may not want to cut into such a pretty cake.

  • Chocolate Dipped Berries

  • Custom Creativity

    This custom cake was made using a real invitation to the party it was made for. They seriously can make whatever you’re looking for. This show of creativity is what makes Devour Desserts so unique.

  • You're A Whole Snack

    This is genuinely so impressive. When you read the caption on the post above, you’ll be shocked at just how much you get from this “You’re A Whole Snack” box. It’s like charcuterie, but made with delectable dessert offerings. Their traditional dessert trays are also very much like charcuterie boards.
