The threading technique that Brow Arch uses has some pretty substantial advantages over tweezing or blowtorching. Suitable for any skin and hair type, threading uproots hairs by lassoing them with a cotton thread, a process that doesn't damage the surrounding skin and is less irritable to sensitive skin types than waxing is. Since some clients prefer waxing, though, the studio still uses that method to remove hair from the hands, legs, and full face. Complementing the skin-smoothing services are facials that make use of ingredients such as herbs and fruit.
Longtime cook Daeva Yearwood Frierson—the eponymous Lady D—got serious about the culinary arts in 2008 when she enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu with a specialty in pastries and baking. Now a diploma-holding dessert chef, Frierson tickles taste buds throughout the metro Atlanta area with her cupcakes and truffles, made from scratch at her home base in Alpharetta. Three sizes of cupcakes sate disparate appetites, ranging from the double-dimensioned jumbo size to the bite-sized mini, perfect as an hors d'oeuvre or a Lilliputian birthday cake. Chocolate truffles fill mouths with sugary filling, whereas strawberries can come dressed in fetching, tuxedo-shaped choco coverings to commemorate formal celebrations.
For more than 50 years, the sweet-treat crafters of The Baking Grounds Bakery Cafe have been churning out customized confectionaries in an old-fashioned, family-run boutique bakery. Dining duos can peruse the made-from-scratch lunch menu items before yodeling out orders, such as ham, turkey, or chicken-salad sandwiches. Bowls of homemade soup and sides of chips chime salty notes against epiglottises as a freshly baked cookie polishes off the meal with a sweet treat.
The bakers of The Baking Grounds whip together freshly crafted cakes for any special occasion, from weddings and anniversaries to graduations from light-pole-climbing school. After discussing designs with a friendly cake constructor, batter bases will be poured from chosen flavors, such as marble, lemon pound, or chocolate-almond pound, which can be encased around cake filling, such as apricot or cannoli. A fondant-free layer of buttercream icing crowns the confectionary masterpiece with delicious icing flavors and skillfully applied swirls and flower cake designs to fill cheek caves.
In 1997, friends Dena Tripp and Debra Shwetz set out to create a luscious, melt-in-your-mouth bundt cake. What began as an endeavor in their own home kitchens soon blossomed into a bustling business with bakeries in 21 states. Rich cocoa browns and soft pastels lend a nostalgic feel to each bakery, where every day ovens warm up cake batter made from fresh eggs, real butter, and cream cheese. Flavors such as chocolate chocolate chip, red velvet, and white-chocolate raspberry are favorite staples, and a new seasonal flavor makes a guest appearance each month. Cakes come in several sizes, from the standard 8- or 10-inch bundt to the single-serving bundtlet and the bite-size bundtini, all crowned with signature cream cheese frosting.
Each delectable chocolate at Yum Yum Candies brims with flavors that only homemade treats made by a trained chocolatier can possess. Along with gourmet chocolates, such as turtles, peanut-butter cups, and marshmallows dipped in chocolate and topped with M&Ms and sprinkles, bakers also craft gooey cookies in flavors such as chocolate chip, lemon pucker, and Bailey’s cream. Handcrafted fudge satisfies customers' sweet teeth with delicious tastes of dark chocolate, white chocolate, walnuts, and slow-roasted diced pecans, and Yum Yum’s café serves up drinks, such as smoothies, hot teas, and coffees. Additionally, Yum Yum’s shelves teem with nostalgic novelty candies, such as jellybeans, candy buttons, Wonka Bottle Caps, and Pez.
