How did our #8 winner get its name? Happy Cakes Bakeshop co-owner Sara Bencomo's two year old son Alden is a huge fan of cake. He's so in love with the confection that, instead of "Happy Birthday!," Alden wishes people "Happy Cakes!" And who wouldn't be happy trying one of Happy Cakes' delightful desserts? Each cupcake adds something new to the same old, same old, whether it's a mini Oreo cookie garnish or a maple buttermilk cake base (for French Toast, of course). Want to be happy while eating cake too? Check out the Pumpkin Pie, a pumpkin streusel cake with bourbon buttercream. — Marilyn He, 11/8/2012
