Someone in this house had a super-secret birthday last week. Since I didn’t have time between Hydra’s physical therapy sessions and working full time from home to bake the traditional lemon cake, I stopped by First Class Cakes to see if they happened to have anything lemonish.
Wow, did they! Clockwise from upper left, lemon coconut cupcakes, lemon cheesecake with lemon curd on top, and lemon scones.
Each of these was yummy in its own way. None of them cloyingly sweet, which was particularly important in the case of the cupcakes, with all that pastry creme on top. And the lemon cheesecake was light and melty on the tongue. We split all of it over three days.
I think we’ll try to make Sweet Bites a regular treat. They are right here in Acton, CA. Just a mile from the house! Not much is a mile from our house, let alone something so terrific.
