This past weekend, my mom and I met up in Atlanta for a weekend together. What was initially planned as a shopping and spa trip turned into us scouting out the many bakeries of Atlanta to find our favorite goodies. We visited Star Provisions, only to be greeted by an abuandance of freshly baked breads, decadent merangues, hearty donuts, and beautifully decorated cupcakes. The ambiance of the bakery was absolutely incredible and everything was toughtfully placed throughout. We then went to Alon's where hearty breads, muffins, and cakes sat perfectly in baskets and on cake stands and jarred honeys, jams, and spreads filled adjacent shelves. Alon's also serves lunch and we were pleasantly suprised with the options and quality of the food. At one point, my mom declared a lamb and veggie wrap as the best thing she had ever eaten. We left Alon's and headed to The Atlanta Cupcake Factory, a quant shop with a case of about 12 different cupcakes ranging in size from mini to jumbo. We left with half a dozen which included salted caramel, red velvet, apple, and german chocolate, all of which tasted so incredible that it was hard to pick a favorite. Needless to say, my sweet tooth was satisfied.
