La Brioche – 2906 N State Street
An authentic French patisserie, La Brioche creates fine pastries and cakes with fresh ingredients daily.
Their desserts and cakes are decadent, delicious and great for any occasion. La Brioche’s cakes are entremets, which is a classic French mousse-based cake with multiple layers. Choose from options like Natalia, made of lemon mousse, vanilla cake, and raspberry mousse topped with white chocolate glaze, or Seraphina, made of layers of raspberry mousse, vanilla cake, and dark chocolate ganache with fresh raspberries topped with a dark chocolate glaze. Entremets are available in 6, 8, 10, and 12-inch options, and all orders must be placed up to four days in advance. If you’re in a bind, you can purchase cakes from the storefront case.

For Heaven’s Cakes and Catering – 4950 Old Canton Road
Another delicious bakery, For Heaven’s Cakes is known for its delicious wedding cakes, grooms’ cakes and birthday cakes.
While many days are devoted to preparing those cakes and shuttling food to catering jobs, For Heaven’s Cakes sells cupcakes at their storefront three days a week, boasting a dozen flavors in the case at one time.
Described as “a little fancier or more grown-up than your regular grocery-store cupcakes,” an impressive list of flavors includes peanut butter, tiramisu, cookies ‘n crème, key lime pie, red velvet and caramel cake. Call 601-991-2253 for catering inquiries and more information.
Urban Foxes – 826 N State Street
Belhaven’s newest sweet shop is serving up baked goods, coffee and craft beer, pies – and even slices of cake.
The small-batch bakery is owned by Jackson native Cody Cox who formerly worked as the general manager at Cups in Fondren. He and his co-owner and wife, Molly West, prepare sweet treats daily. Flavors of cake rotate often, so you might have to check their social media pages for daily offerings, but they’re sure to be fresh and delicious every time. Cake slices are $4, and flavors range from coconut lemon to tres leches pound cake, chocolate espresso, buttermilk blueberry and everything in between. urbanfoxesjxn.com/menu-page
