Sugar-seekers can scoop up a bakers' box brimming with assorted goodies such as a triad of PB&J cookies that bewitch taste buds with the essence of the eponymous sandwich or a slice of coffeecake––a snack traditionally reserved for Juan Valdez birthday celebrations. Spelunk through the decadent strata of a seven-layer bar to unearth toothsome treasures, or redecorate mouth caves with the rich crimson hues of a red-velvet cupcake. A trio of snickerdoodle cookies serenades tongues with delicate three-part harmonies and infectious laughter, and a sextet of cranberry-orange shortbread makes up for its demure stature by combining fruity and buttery tastes into one munchable package.
When the bakers at CAKE Bakeshop decide what creation to craft each day, they usually use one important criterion: are the ingredients for this recipe in season? If the answer is yes, then they add it to their roster of small-batch bakery items for that day. This means that their ovens can be cooking anything from fruit tarts in the summer months to pumpkin-spice blondies in the fall. During the cool winter months, they rely upon the interplay of non-fruit flavors, as seen in their ginger-molasses cookies and brown-butter rice-krispies treats. No matter what the season, however, they create traditional three-tier cakes—including triple chocolate and vanilla latte—topped with edible decorations and swirls of buttercream for customer celebrations.
