Butterscotch Bars

Pop quiz time!  What is butterscotch? 

A) A combination of brown sugar and butter
B) One of Susan's favorite things on this earth
C) Heaven
D) All of the above

If you answered D, you are correct.  And if you, like Susan and Corinne, are a butterscotch fan, you will surely love our Butterscotch Bars.  

With a tender center and a crisp crust, our Butterscotch Bars are a rich bar cookie made with lots of butter and brown sugar.  And they are loaded to the brim with a combination of butterscotch and white chocolate chips.  A tiny bit salty and buttery sweet, we dare you to have only one.

We love not only the bars themselves, but their sweet (pun intended) presentation.  Each custom-ordered set contains one dozen individually wrapped 3x3" bars in a bag with our logo and signature pink bow.

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Corinne and I think it's about time to post our Snickerdoodle Cupcakes on the blog.  They have been one of our top sellers since their inception, and, well, we think they are just too darn cute (and delicious!) to keep them to ourselves any longer.

A longtime favorite with some of our customers/tasters, our Snickerdoodle Cupcake starts off with our fluffy cinnamon sugar cake.  It's buttery, sweet, and a bit spicy-- just like its namesake cookie.  Then we top it with our cookie dough frosting, an icing we made to have the same taste and texture as cookie dough.  (A cookie dough junkie myself, this is one of my favorite frostings we make.)  We sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar, and top it with a freshly baked mini Snickerdoodle cookie.

Some people eat the cookie first, others eat it as is, but all will agree... this is the best of both the cupcake and cookie worlds!

Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes

No one loves winter more than I do. The snow, getting all bundled up... I love it! But there are days when even I miss summer, especially the fresh fruits. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a slight obsession with raspberries, and it is with that in mind that we bring to you a little taste of the summer to help you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, even if it is freezing outside!

Our Lemon Raspberry Cupcake starts with the same lemon cake from our Double Lemon Cupcake, but laced with a swirl of raspberry filling. We created a new raspberry lemon cream cheese icing for the frosting, and perched atop this ode to summertime is a fresh raspberry*, a happy reminder of things to come.

Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes

Thanks, as always, to TZRollins Photography for the beautiful photos.  And please stayed tuned to see some of our most popular cupcakes, some non-cake goodies, and some awesome giveaway offers!

*Raspberries available when in season.  If fresh raspberries are unavailable, we will substitute with your choice of ripe fruit or candy decoration.
