plug for a local bakery

paris cake
how gorgeous is this cake? and here's the thing: it tastes better than it looks. this is the paris cake from a local bakery and cafe here in raleigh called hereghty. their tag line is "heavenly delicious," and they are NOT kidding! their sandwiches, soups, and salads are as lovely as their desserts, and all are exquisite. the counter service is casual, but very friendly and helpful. i can't recommend them highly enough as a post-spa lunch locale (they are located beside synergy, my favorite local spa), a great after-date dessert and wine place, or a place to get a cake for a birthday, dinner party, etc. this cake was 6 inches, and it was plenty for post-symphony and wine last saturday. i bought it right out of the case the day of--they usually have a few in stock. here's where you can find them:

2603 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 123
Raleigh, North Carolina 27608

ps--they also do a high tea in the afternoon if you like that sort of thing, but, fyi, you need a reservation. the teas are from mighty leaf, one of my faves as well.

That is the prettiest cake I've seen. I'm going to have to try that shop! I miss a lot out where I live so thanks for the info.

Thanks for the idea about cute overload! I hadn't thought of that. I'll have to give it a shot.
