Last week hubby and I took the pups for a walk around Old Towne Orange and while there we discovered a new sweet shoppe that had opened. Alas, there was a sign in the window saying they were closed until the following morning. So I vowed to squeeze it into my schedule this past Saturday…which I did.
Doesn’t this look delicious… oh, sorry…it’s just a prop.
They have the cutest little Audrey Hepburn theme with Tiffany Blue walls, a collection of black and white photos of Audrey, marble top tables, and black bentwood cafe chairs.
Even the over-stuffed chairs were wearing little black dresses.
There was a nice variety of cupcakes including a Red Velvet cupcake and one called The King of Chocolate…
but this was the one I chose to sample. I was expecting the frosting to be vanilla, but when I bit into it I was pleasantly surprised to find a super thick rich creamy cream cheese with a band of Turbinado sugar. It tasted just like home made.
It was so delicious that I brought one home for hubby who loved it.
This was my first experience at a shoppe dedicated to nothing but the cupcake and I really enjoyed the ambiance as well as the sweets. The cupcakes sold for $3. a piece which I thought was a very reasonable price. Far less expensive then a pot of tea with a scone. So I’ve decided I’m going to make it one of my local hang outs. Hmm, I wonder if they have Wi-Fi.
