  • Euphoria
    Cuisine Type: Desserts and pastries Established: 2014 Most popular offering: Cupcakes Delivery / Take-out Available: Yes Pro Tip: Mobile bakery. We can deliver items or they can be picked up. We cater also. There is a saying in the food world that "cooking is an art, baking is a science." However Lashaunte, the chef and owner behind the Sweet Euphoria Pastries mobile bakery, might disagree with that statement. She whips up a plethora of tempting desserts using recipes that she has come up with herself, proving that creativity is just as necessary in baking as it is in cooking. Lashaunte has even been known to ask her Facebook fans and strangers in the grocery store if there are any dessert flavors they want to try, and she attempts to accommodate them with her creations. Some of her treats include macarons flavored with cereal—such as Fruit Loops and Apple Jacks—cream-cheese chocolate-chip cookies, and a different type of scone each month. She also concocts vegan and gluten-free desserts upon request, but her most popular offerings are inventive cupcakes, such as espresso chocolate with caramel and peanut butter and jelly.
