House of Sweets
Delray Beach, FL 33444
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Two pretty, perky girls as cute as '50s pinups, Michelle Parparian and Amanda Watkins have transformed a 1920s Florida cottage into a vintage clothing store with a cupcakery in their tiny rear kitchen -- a kitchen known to turn out a thousand cupcakes at a pop for local events. But they're not too busy stocking bridal showers and tea parties to tend to your sweet tooth. Shop for party frocks, beaded purses, and wrist bangles first, then head to the back of the house for rejuvenation in the form of chocolate or vanilla cupcakes ($1.75 each) swirled with the dreamiest pink icing ever whipped up in a vintage mixing bowl. Along with these deliriously cloudlike cupcakes, they produce small, dense, heart-shaped brownies ($1 each) and vanilla sugar cookies with royal icing in dozens of different shapes and themes. Call ahead if you want specialty cupcakes like Black Forest, Red Velvet, carrot, chocolate mint, strawberry shortcake, lemondrop, or orange creamsicle.
