City Pages' Description
If food trends evolve as movements do, then Sweets Bakeshop may be a part of third-wave cupcakism. One petite sweet called Breakfast is frosted with maple buttercream and has its center filled with bacon bits to replicate the sweet-savory tingle of syrup commingling with salt; Kettle Corn is a sweet cornbread topped with honey buttercream and candied corn kernels; and Feisty Goat is a chocolate cupcake filled with caramel and pecans and smothered in a blend of sweetened mascarpone and goat cheeses. They're far more sophisticated than the ones you grew up on as a kid. Sweets also does custom decorating, topping its cupcakes with intricate designs and elaborate scenes. Some consider them performance art: first visually appreciated, then eaten.
Tips from foursquare
Salted caramel French macaron is yummy. Cupcakes come in fun flavors like kettle corn and breakfast (has bacon in it!)
Best macaroons and cupcakes in the cities!
Check @sweetsbakeshop on Twitter before ordering: sometime's there's a sweet last-minute deal (e.g. free cupcake).
