The scent of fresh-baked sweets draws people into the boutique-style bakery, but it's the fluffy buttercream made fresh daily and piled high on each cupcake that keeps them sticking around for more. "People eat first with their eyes," says owner and baker Corrie Case, who uses the creativity she learned from her mother to construct aesthetically pleasing desserts. Baking since she was just 10 years old, Corrie always thought she would open her own candy shop, as everyone who tasted her cupcakes encouraged her to do so. Today, her bakery’s kitchen shines in robin’s-egg blue, her kitchen's creations neatly lined up inside glass cases as they tempt customers with their chic designs and fluffy textures. Coveted flavors include the Snickers cupcake, which melds the flavors of the favored candy bar and the Dreamy White, a french vanilla cupcake topped with clouds of vanilla frosting. Corrie’s coconut cream pie tempts with peaks of whipped cream, and her house-made caramel corn transports her back to the candy shops of her childhood with every batch she makes. Her baked goods pair well with gelato from Gelato Da Vinci, a local purveyor who whips up the cold treats from a generations-old recipe, or with coffee from local roaster Harvest Cafe. It seems Corrie has really found her calling. Says the baker, "I love that I get to wake up every day and make sweets that people love."
