A Piece Of Cake

485 Selby Ave. St. Paul, MN 55102 | St. Paul (Downtown) | 651-846-0016

Location Description:

Do you know someone whose favorite word is cute, someone who likes ribbons, bows, sparkles, kittens, ponies, tiaras, and ballerinas? If so, run, don't walk, to A Piece of Cake, the most whimsical of all Twin Cities bakeries, and buy that certain someone something that will make her twirl around holding her skirts while swooning and yelping: "So cute!" Located in Crocus Hill, this wee bakery is light and clean as a brand-new playhouse, and stocked with so many cute, cute, cute little treats that you feel like there might be a secret door somewhere leading to Barbie's Dream House. Look especially for the "melt-aways": round little white balls of butter cookie wearing wee hats of colored sugar and frosting; they look like cheerful little fantasy creatures ready to roll off to an Easter picnic. So cute. Parents with girly daughters, fellows with girly sweethearts, attend: If you've got a buck for a melt-away, you will really knock your girly-girl's bright-pink socks off. East Coasters, please note: A Piece of Cake also sells black and white cookies, those huge, half-chocolate, half-white iced cookies found in all East Coast delicatessens.
