Sweet Stuff Cakery
On the Hunt for the Perfect Snack!

Cupcakes and cake pops seem to be all the rage these days, and I for one have zero complaints about the trend.
While driving through East Roseville on a recent sunny Saturday afternoon, I stopped by the equally cheery Sweet Stuff Cakery to satisfy my insatiable need for all things sugary. The glass case glowed with gorgeous homemade offerings. The Salty Pretzel, Island Kiss, Red Velvet and Apricot Delight (filled with cream cheese and apricot preserves) cupcakes all looked temptingly delicious – it was hard to settle on just one, so I compromised. I pointed to the Lemon Drop Cupcake and a Vegan German Chocolate Cake Pop, encased in a delicate white chocolate shell. I was not disappointed with my choices. The citrusy lemon cupcake was stuffed with lemon curd and generously topped with a light lemon buttercream frosting; it was as bright as the day outside. The cake pop was dense but not overly rich, and I was pleased to learn that several of their vegan confections have won awards at the Sacramento Vegan Challenge. In fact, many of their items can be made either vegan or gluten free, which should leave no excuse not to pop by and pick up a treat.
