If you live in the Raleigh, NC area and haven't tried anything from Artylicious Cakes, you are truly missing out. Everything they make is incredible, which doesn't surprise me at all. I met with the owner, Iriene Wangsawidjaja about 2 years ago when she was baking deliciousness out of her home. I knew she was a winner from the get-go and am so proud of her for living her dream of owning a bakery...no matter how tired she is right now. It will get better, Iriene, I promise!
It's hard for me to profess a favorite, as everything she makes is literally so delicious it's hard to stop eating. Her macarons are incredible--so light and airy and she does not use heavy American buttercream, which is a big plus for my blood sugar levels. Plus right now she is only charging $1.25 per macaron--UNHEARD OF in any area. Heck, I was paying $4 per macaron in New York City last fall and they weren't near as good as these.
I will be posting more photos of Artylicious Cakes baked goods soon. I have a feeling I won't be able to stay away for long. Her pistachio cake is calling my name this weekend.
