Bedazzled Treats bakes confections that please the eye as much as the palate. Flower-pedal-shaped frosting and swirls of blue and white adorn owners Monet and Troy's creative cupcakes, which are often topped with candy or strawberries. Beyond the creamy cupcakes, Bedazzled whips up innovated parfait shooters spiked with moscato, fruit kebobs that skewer chocolate-drizzled pineapple, banana, and kiwi, and sheet cakes decorated with personalized messages such as "Happy 5th Birthday" or the riveting final chapter of War and Peace.
Glass shards, candy wrappers, and old T-shirts may seem like trash to some, but Secrets on Main Street's visionaries delight in turning them into artistic treasures. During craft workshops, they teach students how to create tie-dyed T-shirts, mosaic monkeys, and candy-wrapper purses using spare materials and infinite imagination. Secrets on Main Street also stocks a boutique where visitors can pick up already-made art, such as a metal wall hanging, a pair of painted Converse sneakers, or a living human statue.
Lickadee Splits ignites appetites through a menu of quick bites and specialty sundaes. At the restaurant’s outdoor counter, patrons sink teeth into savory hot or cold sandwiches that include options such as pastrami, corned beef, and turkey. Side orders of fries and drinks complete the edible trifecta, adding a salty and sweet accent that is vastly superior to the alternative: ocean-water popsicles. Nineteen sundaes such as the marshmallow-topped Lavender Lady shamelessly flirt with sweet teeth, and the chocolate and vanilla Twist & Shout liberates wisdom teeth through in-mouth dance-offs. Each treat is painstakingly assembled within Lickadee Splits's offbeat premises, which is lavished with old-timey signs and an outdoor-seating section replete with rainbow umbrellas to deflect the freshwater trout that commonly fall from the sky.
At Fresh Bakery, it's hip to be square: the trendsetting confectionists eschew antiquated circles for quadrilateral cakes and cupcakes abounding in all-natural ingredients. Nine types of large cakes, including amaretto raspberry and coconut variations, preside over their pintsized brethren, who, beneath carefully arranged decorations, bear creative flavors such as bubblegum and chocolate mocha.:m]]
