I love the fun size candy bars just as much as everyone else, but when it comes to real treats and something that’s actually worth the calories, our bakery is really where you need to go!
Fall is so much fun and I love the flavors of this season, probably because pumpkin is one of my favorites in just about any form - muffins, cupcakes, pie, cake, bars… yum! Check out our Pumpkin Cake Rolls with cream cheese icing. They’re quickly becoming one of our most asked for treats this time of year. Look for them in the cooler at your local store.
Spice cake, Halloween M&M cookies, iced sugar cookies, apple cobblestone bread, pumpkin spice cakes… what do we talk about next? There are so many delicious foods and crafty ideas! I even saw some small tortes in the shape of pumpkins at one of the Lunds stores yesterday. How much fun is that?!
When you eventually make your way to the bakery counters (you always do, your feet can’t help but take you to the sweet stuff), you’ll find that a lot of our stores are doing different things with our gourmet cupcakes – new fillings, icings and decorations. Out of all the new varieties, I’d have to say Blueberry Pancake is my favorite. Just one bite and you won’t be able to tell you’re actually eating a cupcake! The maple icing just makes this one – you can almost see the stack of pancakes sitting in front of you. Some of our other new varieties include: Caramel Apple, Cherry Almond, Chocolate Lovers, Lemon Cello and Blueberry Mascarpone. Swing by and chat with the cake decorator at your store – see what he or she is up to and what new varieties they’ve got. They’re happy to hear your suggestions, too!
Our decorators also have a bunch of ideas for your Halloween party – from cakes and cupcakes, to upscale desserts and tortes, they can really make something special and taste fantastic for your spooky party. Whatever you can think up, they can create something sweet; we have some of the best pastry chefs in the state!
So, aside from the fun-sized Hershey Bars or Almond Joys, what’s your favorite Halloween sweet treat?
