Sweet-tooth sovereign Donna Ray McDow rules over a kingdom of decadent treats handmade from the freshest of ingredients. Each week, six of 24 gourmet mini-cake varieties?including southern red velvet, rocky road, and orange delight?are showcased in the store?s grab-and-go case, and orders for specific flavors can be placed ahead of time. Keep roving bands of physicians away with the wholesome apple-a-day cupcake, or paint a dreary beige tongue pink with the strawberry special, a chiffon cake base filled and covered with strawberry icing and artfully crowned with fresh fraise. The lemon-basil cupcake?s fruit-and-herb duet is accompanied by the smooth stylings of lemon Bavarian cream and candied peel, rendering it an ideally refreshing complement to a dinner of lemon-basil chicken or a cup of German lemon milk.
