I normally don't have much of a sweet tooth, but I recently indulged a bit while attending The Broke Socialite Does...Sugar Coma Festival. The event brought some of Atlanta's best bakeries, caterers, ice cream shops and restaurants together under one roof (Le Fais do-do on Atlanta's westside). Since I'd missed previous tours, I figured that I needed to have the full Sugar Coma experience at least once. This was the perfect venue and opportunity to do so!
Talk about sensory overload-I didn't know where to start sampling! The venue was jam packed with everything from cakes and pastries to truffles and tarts. Cotton candy, petit fours, little marshmallows, brownies, and cupcakes. Tons and tons of cupcakes. Cupcakes as far as the eye could see...
Somehow I made my way to the Peacecake table, which is where I began my sampling. I was really impressed with the Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes and their Gluten Free Brownies. Delicious stuff! You can order their Organic, Vegan & Gluten free brownie, muffin, cupcake and cookie mixes online at their website, www.mypeacecake.com.
There were so many treats to sample and after a few I'd had my limit (I tihnk I may have suffered from Red Velvet Overload). Among my favorites: a mini pear frangipane tart from Konfections by Kristina, the Whoopie Pies from West Egg Café, and a wonderfully refreshing Meyer Lemon Sorbet from High Road Craft Ice Cream and Sorbet (love!). I'm kind of kicking myself for not sampling their Citrus Ginger sorbet (which received raves from several Sugar Coma Fest attendees). A delicious Patrón Margarita cupcake from CEO Custom Cakes (purchased at the Sugar Coma Marketplace) was the perfect ending to a sweet afternoon.
