I’m a pastry snob and the thought of a baker who’ll compromise a dessert simply to appeal to a specialty audience like vegans or the gluten-free strikes me as somebody who should be ejected from the core of the baking faithful and have oven privileges revoked. Yelpers decreed, however, that I needed to try City Cakes, so I bit the bullet.

And I am glad that I did. I’ve tried several cookie flavors and the peanut butter bar, all of which were quite nice. If you want to find nirvana in a fluted paper cup, though, get yourself a sweet potato pecan muffin.

Whoa Nellie, is it an adventure. Real sweet potato flavor, not something that you tend to get in most baked goods, complimented by a nice collection of autumn spices with big pecans all through the cake-like consistency of the muffin.

I have been back twice in an indecent amount of time. Awesome stuff, and my apologies for the harsh mental judgements on being ideologically impure. I doubt I’ll ever try your vegan or gluten-free offerings, but with chops these serious, whatever fringe societies you dabble in are easily forgiven.
