Many people love desserts, but baking them from scratch can be a big ordeal. Luckily, there are many bakers that offer delicious goods that can be delivered and even customized to satisfy a wide variety of dietary restrictions. In no particular order, here is a list of companies that serve up an array of decadent creations.

Starting off our list at #1, Kuba Kreations is a San Diego-based boutique bakery that specializes in everything from custom wedding and special event cakes to dessert bars, cookies, and pies. This company's baked goods are always handmade from scratch using only quality, all-natural ingredients, and never include any high fructose corn syrups, hydrogenated oils, preservatives, or cake mixes.

Kuba Kreations also offers gluten-free, whole grain, non-dairy, and vegan options for those who have dietary restrictions. All of the allergen-friendly sweets are made with natural substitutes to create confections that everyone can enjoy, without any artificial additives.

Next up, at #2, Butter Bakery Cafe is a neighborhood-based, family-run cafe serving the Kingfield and Lyndale neighborhoods of southwest Minneapolis. All of Butter's offerings are made from scratch, and highlight local and seasonal farmers' market produce.

The bakers at this establishment are happy to accommodate specific dietary preferences as well as special custom orders. The cafe's deli case is stocked with quick, light bites that pair well with a cup of fresh brewed coffee, and the homemade ice cream is a favorite among visitors and locals alike.

Coming in at #3 on our list is Diamond Bakery. Named after the famous Diamond Head landmark on Oahu, it was founded in 1921 by three Japanese immigrants, Hidegoro Murai, Kikutaro Hiruya, and Natsu Muramoto, who shared a vision of creating Hawaii's first bakery to specialize in making crackers.

Since then, this institution has become one of the largest cracker and cookie manufacturers in Hawaii. The company uses local ingredients and time tested, family recipes to craft each product. Bestsellers include soda crackers, grahams, and chocolate chip shortbread cookies.

Moving on to #4, Sweetheart St. Johns is a boutique pastry studio run by Anna Henricks, and is located in Portland, Oregon. This brand's cakes and pastries are botanically-inspired, handcrafted using seasonal ingredients and decorated with natural flourishes.

Henricks uses farm-fresh eggs from pasture-raised hens, edible flowers, and local produce to make her signature creations. The recipes never include the use of fondant or artificial colors or flavors. Those interested in sampling one of Sweetheart St. Johns' offerings can do so at the Sweetheart Pop-up Bakery, available in select markets and at events throughout the year.

Lastly, at #5, Sponge is an online bakery based in Holt, Norfolk that offers cake delivery to any location in the UK. This company makes sponge cakes using high-quality and local ingredients. The team works to consistently add new flavors to the range of offerings for customers to try.
