Cakes, cakes, and MORE CAKES!!! My Girl Scouts troop and I took a trip to a popular local bakery the other day, and it was fabulous!
When you first take a step into the Designer Cakes by April bakery, the scent of sweet treats delights your nose. The tour of the small business was inspiring! The fact that April (the store owner) started by only making cakes for her friends in the beginning, then was able to turn it into a profitable business is just amazing!! But what is even more amazing is the cake itself. I had the honor of trying one of their best seller cakes, the pink velvet cupcake. The cake itself isn't as sweet as the cake mixes you would buy at the store but half the cupcake is frosting so who cares! They topped off the pink velvet with cream cheese frosting. Even cooler, they put some edible glitter on top of it to bling it out just like their store is. The whole store is themed with pink, black, white, and a bright green. It is totally girly and frilly foo-foo. Everyone loves their homemade, hand-decorated cakes and cupcakes that they even do weddings! I highly encourage you to go to this high quality cake kitchen and overload with all the sweets you can get. Trust me, once you start, you WON'T be able to stop!
