Mae’s Bakery Birthday cake. Happy first birthday

Dieting sucks lets face it, but if it must be done then it must be done.  I’m on a low carb diet now but diets be damned because it’s the 1st anniversary celebration for Mae’s Bakery (2772 Lenox Road, Suite B4, Atlanta, GA).

Cupcakes and Layer cake and cake pops. Macarons by Xanna Kidd of XK Macarons. Xanna is also a barista at Mae’s.  The beautifully colored French Macarons are a meringue cookie make with almond flour.  They are so deliciously delicate; the outer shell cracks between your teeth and the lightly chewy inside melts in your mouth.

Counter Culture Coffee was in the house for a very informative discussion of all things coffee.

We had a wonderful tasting of Counter Culture Coffees.  The folks at Counter Culture have an encyclopedic knowledge of everything coffee that they pass on the the shop owners that carry their brand.

Most items on Mae’s menu (except croissants) can be made gluten free, just ask.  I hear their whoopie pies are to DIE for. I’ll return to Mae’s soon to give a report on that.
