The owners of Sweet Spot Cake Pops bake each of the company’s confections at home before packing them up for delivery to homes and offices in the area. They specialize in cupcakes and cake pops, bite-sized balls of cake and frosting that are speared on a lollipop stick and then coated in a colorful chocolate shell. The tiny desserts are available in four flavors: red velvet, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. Sweet Spot Cake Pops can also create customized cake pops for holidays, themed birthday parties, or the most delicious ransom note ever.
When the Perry and Burke families joined forces to open Sweet n Swirly, they shared a vision of promoting a healthier alternative to ice cream. Neither family could have predicted, however, how quickly that vision would catch on.
Today, visitors stream into a trio of cheery, welcoming locations in Kentucky and Indiana, eagerly sidling up to self-serve stations that protrude from walls painted in vibrant pinks and purples. These stations pump out 10 creamy flavors at any given time, including no-sugar-added options and nondairy sorbets.
The ever-changing lineup of flavors runs the gamut from refreshing to decadent. On one side of the spectrum are tart, summery variations such as blueberry, ginger lemonade, and non-dairy sorbet, whereas choices inspired by more traditional desserts include peanut butter and root-beer float. A candy wall proffers toppings such as jellybeans and chocolate sunflower seeds.
Unlike many kolacky-bakers, the owners of Kolache Stop don't have Czech heritage or recipes passed down through generations to guide them. Rather, they let their passion for the dense Central-European pastry bloom into a menu of unconventional breakfast, lunch, and dessert options. Fillings range from traditional fruit and cream cheese to jalapeño, pulled pork, and other Southwestern ingredients that the owners have dubbed "Tex-Czech." They also veer from tradition by putting their fillings inside rather than on top of every fluffy pastry bun.
Besides its titular snacks—which are baked fresh onsite every day—Kolache Stop charms sweet teeth with cinnamon rolls, cinnamon twists, and sticky buns on the weekends. Whether guests take their treats to go or stay to use free WiFi in the café, they can wash down their baked goods with coffees ground in-house, low-fat frappes, and smoothies made from real fruit rather than vegetables in disguise.
Le Petit Cheesecakes' bakers blend fresh cream cheeses, flavored extracts, and cream into 2- to 4-ounce cheesecakes. They then sprinkle the miniature treats with sweets including their own candied nuts, sometimes paired with a dollop of bourbon whipped cream or stripe of chocolate ganache. Catering to dessert-lovers on the go, the cook’s cheesecake bonbons pack sweet flavor on an easy-to-carry and even-easier-to-swordfight-with stick. The confectioners make every effort to comply with requests for substitutions, and can also whip up a full-sized 10-inch cheesecake upon request. No matter what the sugary need, all works of edible art are available for hand delivery within the San Antonio metro area.
