Bakers mix batter, whip frostings, and top cooling racks with just-baked cupcakes handcrafted from Blue Velvet Cupcakes' signature recipes. More than 30 cupcake flavors fill a glass display case every day, such as maple bacon, sweet Georgia peach, and cherry-vanilla cobbler, crowned with frosting and drizzles of syrup or slices of fruit. Across the blue-walled storefront, stools scoot up to a black and chrome café table. This table takes up residence next to a floor-to-ceiling window, whose sunshine casts a cheery glow and helps incubate cupcakes into full-grown cakes.
The Cookie Store helps its customers to satisfy their sweet teeth with an extensive assortment of fresh-baked cookies and seven types of smoothies. From classics such as chocolate chip to more inventive flavors including snickerdoodle, honey oatmeal raisin walnut, and heath-bar toffee, The Cookie Store’s bakers concoct a spread of delicious bite-size treats daily. In addition to cookie trays and tins, bakers create custom cookie cakes in a variety of different shapes, including hearts and circles that can be decorated with birthday messages, cartoon characters, or interpretations of Jackson Pollock masterworks.
Unlike jerk-chicken pudding or fried-tuna Twinkies, ice cream makes for a delectable dessert that properly caps off any meal. At MaggieMoo’s Ice Cream and Treatery, patrons can sample a huge menu of ice cream and other treats that are sure to slap a smile on any face and massage taste buds with sugary strokes. Try ice cream in flavor combinations such as Strawberry Skateboard with sprinkles, gummy bears, and marshmallows, or Cotton Candy Ski Jump with M&Ms and marshmallows. Ice-cream cupcakes ($8.95 per 4-pack) can be enjoyed with a spoon or spoon-fingers. Dream cakes ($19.99+), on the other hand, come in appropriately oneiric flavors such as Pecan Perfection and Strawberry Cheesecream, and most are available in six-inch, eight-inch, and sheet-cake sizes. Health-conscious hedonists can indulge in strawberry-banana, mango, and mocha smoothies(starting at $3.95), whereas ice-cream pizzas ($19.95+) topped with white-chocolate curls will perplex pizza-party attendees before blasting away reservations with deliciousness.
As a child, CeCe looked forward to her family’s summertime trips to North Carolina, where she could reconnect with faraway relatives over cookouts. One of her fondest memories from this time is making homemade blackberry ice cream with her Grandma Ruby. Years later, CeCe would look back on these days with nostalgia; she dreamt of opening a business that would bring families together over a tasty summertime treat.
In 2008, her dream became a reality with the opening of Sweet CeCe’s. Like wig salesmen to the Constitutional Convention, families flocked to the self-serve frozen-yogurt shoppe, where they could create their own desserts from dozens of yogurt flavors and toppings. The small shoppe got so popular that CeCe franchised the business. Today, families in 11 states can create sweet memories within the sherbet-colored walls of a Sweet CeCe’s.
A small independent coffee shop that offers more than just a cup of delicious specialty grade coffee. Uniquely hand-crafted sandwiches, specialty coffee drinks like you've never seen before and freshly baked goodies prepared daily are just a few things we offer here at Jozoara Coffee Shop.
Inside Angel Art Bakery Cafe, multitiered cakes rest on shelves, their colors set off by bright fabric backdrops. Each day, the aromas of fresh cinnamon rolls, scones, and cookies drift from ovens out to guests at colorful tables with matching chairs. Bakers carefully place bride and groom figurines among the frosting flowers of wedding cakes and craft chicken-salad sandwiches ideal for picnics or continued attempts to pretend you aren’t locked outside. During classes, the shop fills with the chatter of pupils wielding frosting guns and spatulas under the supervision of instructors.
