When frosting her signature cakes, cookies, and sweets, C. Marie’s Sweets’ professional pastry chef Christine Shulman draws on her lifetime of baking scholarship and experience. The bakery fills with the aroma of cupcakes and cakes in uncommon flavors, such as black forest with red cherries and italian-buttercream frosting and yellow cake with sweet amaretto liquor and almond buttercream. A dozen signature sugar cookies can be custom decorated with snowflakes for Christmas or Grover Cleveland's face for Presidents’ Day, and peanut-butter cookies coddle Hershey kisses. Bakery specialties include an espresso-infused tiramisu and chocolate-ganache brownies with creamy, mustache-clinging frosting.
Learning to bake in her grandmother’s kitchen, Anyatta Nicole started selling out cakes to her sister’s coworkers at a local call center. Buoyed by the response she received, Anyatta joined with her mom to create Sinsational Cakes Bakery. The full service sweet shop creates ornate, colorful cakes for any occasion, with a full gallery of their creations available online. Anyatta and her team shape sugar and dough into guitars, cartoon characters, Polo shirts, or adult-themed sweets.
Roots Coffeehouse serves up coffee, teas, and a broad array of espresso-based drinks and complements its potable pleasures with friendly service and a variety of edible options. The shop's menu draws upon three different types of espresso—a single-origin, a blended, and a decaf—to provide savvy sippers with an extra degree of customization to their order. Organic and fair-trade coffee and teas are also available to help keep consciences light and fluffy. Order up a honey vanilla latte ($3.85 for a medium) for a sweet kiss of bee syrup without the danger and mess of personally milking the bees, then pair your vanilla-fueled brainpower with Roots' free WiFi. Frozen drinks such as raspberry mocha or vanilla bean frappes ($4 for a medium) help the overheated mock the impotent sun. A food menu featuring fresh-baked pastries and muffins, as well as a quartet of sandwiches ($7.00), is also available to help customers practice one-handed hunger-avoidance maneuvers.
