baked goods

cookies

In a grand, sweeping, luxurious mood we went to the bakery on Saturday morning.
(Those small checkerboard cookies are the best ones.)

I chose a cherry danish and a palmierre.
Later, while I was out, Middle ate the palmierre. It's a good thing I like him.
The cherry danish at our bakery has pastry cream underneath the cherries. The cream plays well with the sour cherries and there's a sweet glaze on top. It's just about perfect.
But that's not what I like best about going to the bakery -

I like to look at the special orders at the bakery.

cakes

I like to see whose birthday it is and who is getting married and who is celebrating a baby.

I can't help feeling happy when I leave - it was Bob's birthday, Francis Patrick was blessed, and the Ernestos had a beautiful wedding cake.

Oh, that all looks so good.
Wow. I've looked for black & white cookies for 30 years and never see them ANYWHERE around here. Clearly I need to move. Your bakery far exceeds anything in Wisconsin.

Oh my god, I just had the best cookies in the world. They are so good that a box of 27 small cookies costs $14.99. They are made with whole wheat flour and everything organic and are incredibly delicious.

I am glad they are spendy because otherwise I would be eating them nonstop.

You're a nice Mommy--either that or you're just less territorial about your pastry. Pity the child who dares steal something marked as a Mommy Treat in my house!

I knew Eurolush would get to this comment box first.

I was actually first in line, but she pushed ahead of me and then pretended not to see my death stare.

Shameless.

I totally have nothing to say but clicked on the comments to see what Eurolush said! Pastries? I'm sure Eurolush liked this one! And she was first!!

But I do have something to say: I love that the cake shop finally opened in our little town (the sign has been up for MONTHS...)! I love looking at cakes!

Wow! If I ever visit Tuvalu, we are straightaway to the Bakery!

Oh the bakery is a very very dangerous place for me to go!

Much safer viewing this way though :)

Am loving that birthday cake wrapped like a present.
Dude. SO not fair to those of us trying to diet!

It is clear to me that nothing from your bakery will ever be seen at CakeWrecks.com.

Sure. As I sit here eating Chips Ahoy you taunt me with real baked goods. Heh.

MasterM has asked me to tell you that it is your fault that he had to make a late night dash to the garage to buy chocolate.

Such artistry at the Tuvalu bakery!

I wish I could see the Mazel Tov cake better. Those sunflowers are so pretty.
