Susie's shortbreads

This afternoon I was walking down Dresden Row and was thrilled to see that Susie's shortbreads was open for business. Having purchased some of owners Brad and T.J's treats at the Farmer's Market, I had my eye on this little confectionery since the 'Opening Soon' sign appeared in the window.

The bakery offers their namesake; 11 varieties of shortbreads topped with chocolate or buttercream and blended with such yummy additions as toffee chunks, peanut butter and chocolate chips.

Susie's also offers cupcakes pleasing to the eye as well as the stomach. With rich buttercream frosting and a little treat on top such as peanut butter cups, peppermint patties and jelly worms, these delicious cakes cater to the kid in everyone.

After MUCH consideration and debate, I went for the Strawberry Fields cupcake; vanilla cake with a strawberry buttercream made with fresh strawberries and topped with a light pink strawberry jelly bean.

The bakery itself is a lovely spot to visit for a quick sugar rush. It provides window seating, with malt shop-inspired retro accents and plenty of pink. They also offer a selection of beverages and coffee to go with your treat. If you're craving a 'lil somethin sweet, Susie's shortbreads is the place to go.

My name is Kathy and I am the "auntie" of TJ and Brad, the owners. Although I haven't been able to make it to the shop yet (planning to verrry soon), I have had the pleasure of "taste-testing" many of the faaabulous products and strongly encourage everyone to!!!
