Peering into the pastry display case at Sweet Story Bakery is always a treat. That's because head baker and owner Michele Howard not only creates beautiful desserts, but changes the menu every day. One day, she'll be in the mood to create more decadent treats, and so she'll craft Ding Dong cupcakes, cherry chocolate scones, and New York?style cheesecake. But on another, she'll stick to lighter options such as raspberry lemonade cake or salty and sweet cake pops. Other occasions might bring layered Kit Kat bars, lemon bars, and chocolate-dipped pecan wedges. No matter her mood, however, she always cooks up at least one gluten-free dessert to ensure every guest can sate their sweet tooth. She complements her homemade desserts with jars of novelty candy. These pair with desserts to make great last-minute gifts or to put finishing touches on gingerbread-house renovations.
