Smallcakes

Cupcakes adorn the counter at Smallcakes in Arlington, Virginia.

I thought since many of us had sufficient sweets during the past month we may have a body reaction by now – to indulge ourselves again. 

What if I just posted some images from Smallcakes near Washington, D.C. (Arlington, Virginia close to the Pentagon)? Well, sure, why not? 

I have some future posts about Smallcakes in other locations but I wanted to wet your appetite so you won’t have withdrawals.  Okay? Will that work?

Smallcakes is a sweet place to get your sugar fix; the only thing though – they don’t have gluten-free ones.  Bummer!  That’s okay, family and others sure enjoy them.  I’ll just look and smell, and photograph.  😊

Watch out world!  Smallcakes says they have a plan for “Worldwide Cupcake Domination.”  https://www.smallcakescupcakery.com/

Where’s the competition? 

Blessings and love along the way,

Where’s your bakery?

Do you have a special bakery nearby? If I could start one I would like to include a good mixture of gluten-free and yeast-free items. Of course that would be difficult since most products have flour and yeast as key ingredients.

Well, while I couldn’t eat the regular bakery items at the Silos Baking Co. (Magnolia Bakery) in Waco, Texas, I sure could enjoy the quaint, hometown, wonderful-looking bakery developed by Chip and Joanna Gaines, former stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper series.

When interviewed in 2016 by Today, Joanna commented: “I’ve dreamed about having a bakery since I opened the Little Shop on Bosque Boulevard in 2003. After our move to the Silos (our market and shops), the little building on the front of the property was the perfect spot to finally open one.” https://www.today.com/home/see-inside-chip-joanna-gaines-bakery-magnolia-silos-t104852.

Guests wait patiently to savor the fresh-baked goodies from the Silos Baking Co. in Waco, Texas.

The line into the bakery was formed beside the building on the day we visited. I’m not the type to wait around but this is a one-time event that we needed to endure with patience.

I did enjoy watching people from practically everywhere enjoying themselves and salivating over the smell and view of the sweet delights.

Here are some views to trigger your saliva glands too.

The family sure enjoyed the cupcakes that ranked probably in the top five ever. Just look at these beauties.

A dozen cupcakes and two gluten-free cookies makes it worth the wait at Silos Baking Co. in Waco, Texas.

Blessings along the Way!
