When you’re a writer and part of your job is to visit fabulous local restaurants and share your experiences, let’s face it – people are going to be jealous. I was thinking of this when I received my latest assignment: to visit, taste test, and review Christina’s Dessertery. As I tell my friends and family, “It’s a rough gig, but someone’s gotta do it!” And they really had to twist my arm on this one…but it makes sense to send a restaurant reviewer to a bakery of this caliber and report back. After all, people need desserts for upcoming Fourth of July celebrations, family reunions, and on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
So, I put on a brave face and forged ahead. That’s my job and I am a professional.
Walk into Christina’s Dessertery and one has instantly stepped into the sweetest oasis that Clemmons has to offer. The decor is simple, yet elegant; trendy, but classic; warm and always inviting. And the heavenly aromas take the term “aromatherapy” to a new level!
Christina and her team have been working hard on some decadent summer treats! I had the pleasure of sampling a variety of cake flavors.
Nothing says summer like strawberries and when they’ve been paired with Christina’s incredible Velvety White Wedding cake and vanilla buttercream icing, layered with strawberries… This is the treat summer dreams are made of.
Strawberries and Crème
Christina’s Dessertery knows that people love their strawberries, so there are two options! This cake is a delightfully light strawberry cake paired with a buttercream frosting. The creamy goodness blends with the sweet taste of strawberries!
Remember when you were a kid and you got those orange push-up pops at summer camp? Delicious and even years later, the memories of orange push-up pops are forever associated with summer. Now, imagine it’s a cake. Yeah. It’s as awesome as you imagine.
Lemonade is extra special when it’s pink and Christina’s Dessertery makes an incredible cake that is sure to be a family favorite. The perfect blend of tangy sweetness, it’s a beautiful addition to any family get together!
What if you just can’t decide between Orangesicle, Key Lime, or Pink Lemonade? Well, you could order a slice of each… OR, you could have all three with the Citrus Layer cake. Wow. What a magnificent blend of yummy summer flavors! Orange, lime, and lemon come together to form a perfect trio.
This one isn’t a seasonal favorite, but this gal loves her coffee and I just couldn’t resist trying the Café Mocha! This is heaven on a plate. Chocolate cake topped with an espresso, buttercream frosting… This a flavor any coffee-lover must try!
Like I said, it’s a tough job, but someone had to do it. My taste buds accepted the challenge and they were not disappointed. Make sure you visit Christina’s Dessertery soon! And don’t forget… Let them know Rosey sent you!
