Anybody who's been a long-time reader of Tiffany Tastes knows that I have a quite a sweet tooth, and I haven't quite shaken the cupcake craze. Well, there's a new(ish) game in town, and they've come to play.
Frost Bake Shop is located in the Laurelwood Shopping Center in East Memphis. The company has been making special order cakes and pies for Mid-South families in an industrial kitchen in Bartlett, but the storefront has only been around since last summer.
Frost offers 10 flavors of cupcakes everyday, including chocolate, strawberry, caramel, red velvet, lemon and many more. For larger appetites, go for the standard size. If you like your desserts dainty, grab the mini versions.
I believe that their whole cakes are actually far superior than their cupcakes, both in texture and moisture. I've actually ordered one of their caramel cakes for my birthday, and it was extremely delicious. At the shop, you can get your cakes whole or by the slice.
But the true stars have nothing to do with cake. Here are the top two treats in the display case:
- Gooey Butter Cookies - Oh my goodness, these are so good. Creamy, delectable, and buttery, these cookies are soft, rich and absolutely awesome dipped in coffee.
- Mississippi Mud -This is my kind of dessert: moist brownie topped with marshmallow cream and slathered with chocolate frosting and drizzled with chocolate ganache.
