Something Delightful bakes up custom cakes, cupcakes, and more, welcoming confectionary devotees to linger over a sugary snack in its café area. Sugar seekers can follow the lead of a cupcake-hunting daschund or look for the bakery in its slightly hidden locale behind Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers. Successful sweet-questers will be rewarded upon arrival with their choice of a dozen original cupcakes—available in flavors such as red velvet, chocolate or strawberry cream-filled, raspberry delight, and more—or a fancier, sometimes shmancier, Top-Shelf variety. These embellished cupcakes delight the senses with a little extra flavor punch, such as the Black Forest variety, which tempts even the most focused red-hooded travelers with its pastry cream and cherry insides buried within a chocolate cake exterior and sealed off with a vanilla buttercream chapeau.
Third-generation baker Lorre Jacobs Daniel proved that she inherited the family's penchant for sweets when she won The Food Network's Cupcake Wars while representing the state of Georgia. After 20 years of baking in various shops around the U.S., she opened Southern Cosmopolitan Baking Company in Atlanta, where she crafts homemade goodies that pay homage to her mother's Chicago roots and her father's French-Quarter heritage.
Naturally, cupcakes are Daniel's specialty. Mainstays include red velvet, chocolate overload, citrus apricot, and coke classic, but the shop rotates weekly flavors too, such as bananas foster, strawberry lemonade, and campfire s'mores. The bakery's repertoire also includes cookies, cakes, and southern-style specialty sweets including caramel cinnamon rolls, peach cobbler, and bolo ties made of fondant. On another sweet note, Daniel also gives back to the local community by providing sponsorship to start-up bakeries and running an internship program with Fulton County Schools.
Nikki's Delightful Treats stocks its pantry with local and seasonal ingredients to flavor its cupcakes, cake pops, pies, and other confections. Buttercream frosting tops cupcakes in flavors such as carrot cake, marble, and alcohol-infused coconut rum, and a rainbow of cake pops double as marimba mallets in a pinch. Golden lattices embrace pies such as apple and blackberry, and flowers, ribbons, and other adornments decorate cakes.
