sweets + treats in seattle.

Thursday, May 23, 2013

macarone pictured above is pistachio from le panier.

Here's an obvious truth... I have a sweet tooth. But not just any sweet tooth, a large ginormous one (or multiple) that causes me to crave for sweet lemon cakes, buttercream frosting and dark chocolate ganache at all times of the day. Some may deem me a cupcake connoisseur as I have previously mentioned my cake to frosting ratio theory. Sharing my favorite Seattle sweet spots will be my gift to you this weekend, and I encourage you to indulge... because life is better when sweet.
