You walk in, and are immediately hit with the smell of happiness. The sweet warmth of cupcakes and cookies fill your lungs, and there’s suddenly an extra bounce in your step. It’s like magic. Beautiful, delicious magic.
This is how I felt walking into Baked by Amy’s. I was immediately greeted with four seasonal macarons, two cookies the size of my face and three gigantic cupcakes. They sure do know how to woo a girl. I was also immediately charmed by the interior. Bright and merry and full of flowers and gorgeously decorated chalkboards.
I was so excited about all of the things that it took me a while to settle down and actually bite into anything. But once I started eating, stopping was not an option.
The pina colada macaron had me from first taste. I had forgotten the description given to me by the time I bit into it, but it might as well have been called “summer.” It tasted like a first dip into a swimming pool, like the sweet smell of tropical suntan lotion, like a perfect vacation in the middle of July. Put simply, it was paradise to my taste buds.
Another source of pure joy? The lemon tart cupcake donned a light, whipped topping which was an ideal match for the crumbly, curd filled cupcake. Another addition that pairs wonderfully with a hot, summer’s day.
The rest of the baked goodness did not disappoint. From the Tres Leches cupcake full of fresh fruit and cream to the blissfully sweet cherry and berry macarons, every little thing Baked by Amy’s does is magic.
The best part of all of this for someone as indecisive as me? I don’t have to choose between cupcakes, cookies or macarons before coming in. They have ’em all! Not in the mood for any of that (you crazy, boo) either? There’s an Amy’s Ice Creams RIGHT next door.
Did I mention yet Baked by Amy’s is ten minutes from my house? Ain’t that the sweetest?!
