Cupcakes are so popular in America that the top three Internet searches are cupcakes, hunky firemen, and hunky firemen kissing cupcakes. Get web 2.0 with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of organic cupcakes and sweets from Cake Flour. Cake Flour’s confectionary construction crew assembles a menu of expertly prepared cupcakes and pastries that tame even the most truculent sweet teeth.
Since the bakery opens as early as 7 a.m. Monday through Friday, breakfast time is sweetened by pairing a cup of organic coffee or tea with morning morsels of scones and coffeecake ($2–$4). Chocoholics grab brownies by the truckload ($2.50 each), and entomologists examine chocolate love bugs ($2) and bourbon-chocolate bugs ($2.25). Mouth-wrestle a trove of banana-truffle and carrot-cake cupcakes ($2.75 each), or take on their vegan and gluten-free alter egos ($3 each). Cake Flour can also cater events or build a tricked-out cake for fantasy water-polo draft parties.
Cake Flour's environmentally conscious lead baker, Claudia M. DeLatorre, ensured that the organic bakery was built out of green materials. Its skilled team uses only natural, free-range ingredients so that munching on guilty pleasures feels as guilt-free as possible––much like swallowing a baby bird that falls into your mouth totally by accident.
While training at New York City’s French Culinary Institute, pastry chef Claudia DeLatorre learned that making incredible desserts often involves many steps but rarely many preservatives. At her bakery, Cake Flour, creations range from simple savories such as egg biscuits and roasted vegetable sandwiches to fancy, French-inspired sweets such as macarons, tarts and opera cakes. Creations are free of trans fats, preservatives, and always culled from the finest regional and global ingredients.
Determined to serve the most memorable baked goods her customers have ever tasted, Claudia and her team craft each goodie from scratch, kneading the bread dough and mixing rich ganache to glaze a flourless chocolate cake that’s been featured on the Food Network. In addition to building individual confections for Cake Flour’s bakery case, Claudia designs custom wedding cakes and tailors treats to the needs of vegan and gluten-free diners.
