Dawn’s Candy and Cake in Lynnwood, Washington

Every once and awhile you happen upon something you never needed to know but are oh so glad you found out. I am still grieving the closure of Paper Zone. I’ll never forget when I discovered this crazy, amazing paper supply store. I would never settle for generic, fake marble office paper again. Hallelujah. If you, too, love paper more than you should, you are probably grieving with me. I miss it so much it hurts. I’m pretty sure this is a separate blog post waiting to happen. In the meantime, we’ll get through this. Together.

Back to amazing. Dawn’s Candy and Cake is just that. For me, a cake decorator’s daughter, Dawn’s was like walking back in time – to the days when I used to take naps on bakery shelves and play with plastic cake decorating toys. I was five again. And it was lovely.

We all know that when it comes to people and to cakes, it’s the inside that counts. Hello flavors and fillings and fondants.

Vanilla. Butter. Peppermint. Yep. Yep. Yep.

It’s the little things.

Fun and fanciful muffin or cupcake & candy liners.

My favorites are the dark brown minis. Adorbs.

You need food colors? How about in pen form?

And in case that isn’t enough options, there’s more. Oh, sweet baby Jesus.

And my favorites – the boxes. Completely perfect for the holidays. Fill with treats and you will win friends and influence people. No. I’m not kidding.

I see pumpkin breads, banana breads. I see anything piled high with streusel and frosting, really.

You’re more of a cake pops person? Oh, okay. They have you covered too with a rainbow supply of candy melts. Go now and don’t look back. Well, okay, do look back if you’re handing me a streusel-y, frosted something. I will accept. It’s fall after all – the perfect time of year to accidentally discover Dawn’s and to happen upon some streusel. You’re welcome.

And, Dawn, I will be bringing my five-year-old self next time so please clear a shelf for my nap and open a package of plastic ballerinas so I can have play time. We’ll call it cake decorator’s daughter therapy.

Dawn’s used to be in Bothell, but they moved to Lynnwood across from Alderwood Mall in the H Mart Plaza on July 7, 2016.

  • Nice photos. Dawn’s cakes looks prepared for anything. I love the selection of food colors they have available; it reminds me of being able to pick a swatch of colors when purchasing paint; real cool. Being cake decorator’s daughter seems like a great way to grow up, I could only imagine the fun it must have been to see cakes transformed into wonderful pieces of culinary art on a daily basis.
