Desserts are far from one-size-fits-all, and Vanilla Blue Frozen Yogurt & Bake Shop carries more than most. Since its opening in November of 2014, the shop has tempted palates with treats of varied tastes and temperatures, from frosting-topped cakes to cherry-topped frozen yogurt. Smoothies manage to appeal to both the sweet tooth and the calorie counter at the same time, while those who don't fancy sugar can opt instead for a soothing cup of tea, a potent cup of coffee, or a healthy but totally boring cup of water.
Despite its name, some of the sweets at Baby Kakes are for adults only. Of the bakery's several dozen flavors of cupcakes, about half are infused with liqueurs to create edible versions of drinks such as tequila sunrise, irish cream, mimosas, and cupcake punch. (They're even topped with cocktail garnishes such as limes, cherries, and strawberries.) Non-alcoholic options are equally creative, pairing mango with coconut and dark chocolate with bacon.
The main attraction at Sub Zero is the house-made frozen yogurt, which comes in eight flavors and the option to mix and match from more than 30 toppings. But that's not the only frosty snack to choose from: there are also 16 flavors of ice cream, including salted caramel and creamcicle, plus handmade milkshakes and smoothies. Best of all, the shop also offers gluten-free flavors and dairy-free sorbet for those with dietary restrictions.
Ye Olde Christmas and Candy Shoppe, nestled in historic Marietta Square, stocks a selection of nostalgic candies and festive gifts. Saunter up to the candy bar to tempt taste buds with homestyle fudge, imported Belgian chocolates, and sugar-, gluten-, and nut-free chocolates. Retro candy, such as rock candy, Necco wafers, and Gold Rocks nugget gum, brings back the sweet taste of childhood and the memories of watching the other kids eat the candy their parents gave them to show them their love.
The Christmas Shoppe prepares shoppers for upcoming holidays with folk-art Santas by Pat Siskin and Marietta ornaments designed by local artists. Its shelves also house collegiate items and gifts for special occasions such as anniversaries and imaginary friends’ weddings.
Deliteful Events may have the word "lite" in its name, but its menus have plenty of opportunity for indulgence. Bakers decorate and layer cakes for occasions ranging from kids' birthdays to weddings, each with a huge number of flavor, filling, and icing options. Those range from the homey—applesauce cake and cream-cheese frosting, for instance—to intriguing gourmet blends such as white-chocolate banana cake. Served in a cozy cafe and at catered events, the savory side of the menu holds juicy sandwiches, classic salads, and comfort cuisine such as meatloaf.
Miss Mamie's plays host to a small army of frosty cupcakes, harboring five distinct flavors of moist, cream-topped cake each day. Because each day brings a flavorful flight of gourmet goodness, customers may check Miss Mamie's homepage for rotating menu options, such as the ravishing red velvet, the slowly poured ingenious fusion of chocolate and Guinness, or the fortuitous cameo of caramel-spiced apple. The cupcakery also churns out daily regulars such as cookie dough, devils food, and the oxymoronic smoothly paved rocky road. Atop the pillow of buttercream, Miss Mamie often places a tiny treat, such as a mini gingerbread man, banana chip, or buttery chunk of cookie dough.
