Cakes by Darcy

The front door of Cakes by Darcy. We stopped by because of my niece, Caroline's upcoming 6th birthday. She wanted cookies to take to school, and her order was tough: football cookies for the boys and tiara cookies for the girls. Here's hoping none of the little boys prefer tiaras, or all kindergarten hell will break loose!

Everything in Darcy's is beautiful and perfectly decorated...almost too perfect. I tried to throw them off by buying a bag of non-sweet cheese straws. Those were also perfect. Get a gander at these cakes:

Makes me want to throw a big party just so I can order one. My family members living in Atlanta are frequent customers of Cakes by Darcy, and loooove their confections. Who wouldn't? If they taste half as good as they look, they have to be among the best.

The football cookies look good, too.

Darcy's might be smaller and have less selection than the last bakery I blogged about, Oakmont Bakery in Pittsburgh-- but the quality and taste of the products are just as high. If you are ever in Roswell, Georgia, and need sweets, stop in to see Darcy. She might sell you a football cookie even if you are a girl...and the eggs.

good question. that's what caroline wanted, but they didn't have them so she settled on fancy pretty heart cookies for the girls and the boys still got footballs.

That bakery looks heavenly. We have nothing like that here.

The girls in my son's preschool always want the boy stuff when given a choice.

Cookbook J.- Someone SHOULD open one there. Mom- of course you want a basketball cookie. That's definitely what I would have picked out for you.
