Nestled in the tranquil Brushy Creek Neighborhood, Sips is a family owned and operated coffee shop that slakes thirsts and perks up eyelids with Fair Trade Certified and organically grown coffee drinks. Their espresso combines beans from Central America, African, and South American, topping it all with a thick, foamy crema. In sweltering temps, you can show sweat who's boss with rich, hand-blended smoothies or even a Hawaiian Shaved Ice. The latter is created by shaving off a block of purified ice, resulting in a finer texture that's better able to absorb Sips' flavorful syrups.
Four Things to Know About Bittersweet Cakes and Catering
Laura Eliel, the owner and baker extraordinaire at Bittersweet Cakes and Catering, brings a world traveler’s sensibility to her culinary exploits. She’s lived in both Europe and the Middle East, and those globe-trotting experiences have informed her cooking—Laura loves experimenting with out-of-the-ordinary tastes, spices, and presentations. Read on to discover what else makes Laura’s bakery unique:
Laura will cater your whole party. Her offerings go beyond fanciful layer cakes—Laura offers a full catering menu, with imaginative entrees such as bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin, lamb kibbe, and teriyaki-ginger salmon.
She whips up a mean armadillo cake. But other choices for less traditional groom’s cakes abound, from a cake shaped like a Dallas Cowboys football helmet to a Day of the Dead sugar skull.
You can have your dessert and a cocktail at the same time. The menu includes boozy baked goods such as the Hawaiian Paradise cake with rum syrup, a Tiramisu cake with cappuccino liqueur, and a chocolate Grand Marnier cake with fresh mandarin oranges.
Make a splash at your next dinner party. Bittersweet offers cooking classes, where
students learn to make specialty foods such as Moroccan or Mediterranean dishes.
Every bride dreams of a perfect wedding day, and Jhoana Moore was no exception. The centerpiece of her dream day was a cake made to her exact specifications, and she worried that no one else would be able to realize the image—and the taste—of the confection she had already baked in her imagination. What better person, she concluded, could there be to bake her dream cake than herself?
After the cake in question turned out to be a huge hit with her wedding guests, Jhoana decided to use her baking skills to help others realize the desserts of their own dreams, whether custom-designed cakes, cupcakes, or cookies. She collaborates on projects with her customers via email and phone, using their input to determine aspects such as the flavor. Designs can be sculpted out of edible fondant into three-dimensional shapes or frosted with icing that adds complex flavors and textures. Jhoana also crafts smaller portions for in-store purchases, baking cupcakes, cookies, and similarly portable sweets each day.
