Though now a wedding-day staple, the first cake was baked in response to the high percentage of tiny bride and groom figurines that sunk to the bottom of traditional wedding stew. Savor sweet solutions with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pies, cakes, and fresh-baked specialties at Sugar and Scribe Bakery.
The supreme confectioner at Sugar and Scribe Bakery weaves generations of Irish family recipes into a mouthwatering menu of daily baked fluffy and moist treats. Cyndi's Polish Kiffles ($4 per bag) lead off the pastry menu, while a loaf of irish soda bread challenges appetites not to leave a crumb behind ($15). More than 15 pie iterations—including Kentucky Derby pie ($15 for a 9”) and Grandma Kate's blueberry ($12 for a 9”)—interrogate appetites as part of a windowsill crime watch. Graspable cupcakes include hot-chocolate whipped cream and Grandpa Soapy's lemon-curd cake ($3.50–$5). A gooseberry-frangipane tart puckers satisfied mouths ($4), and savory taste buds swoon over fluffy artichoke-and-feta stratas ($6) and triple-cheese quiche ($6). Made to quell canine confection cravings, dog treats, such as Little Pumpkin nibs ($6), reward well-behaved pups and bribe watchdogs into playing dead.
