Mr Shuck and I traveled back to Georgia recently and got a chance to revisit the Honeymoon Bakery in Rome. I was glad to see that they still had mini cupcakes so I could try a few!
I tried the Strawberry Mini first. The icing was fluffy and full of fresh strawberry flavor. It sat atop a moist strawberry cake and was garnished with a sugar flower that I didn’t really taste. (Not tasting the decor is typically a good thing. Sprinkles and sugar flowers aren’t typically the most delicious part of a cupcake.) I would have liked to have had more information regarding the details, like was it a meringue butter cream or American butter cream, but my email for more information was returned with only the barest of information.
I’ve had the Italian Creme cake from Honeymoon Bakery before. It wasn’t as delicious as I remembered, but it was NICE. The cream cheese icing was tangy and full of nutty goodness. The cake was just slightly dry but not crumbly at all. I’d buy it again.
The Sour Cream fudge bite made up for the small amount the Italian creme cake was lacking. The icing and cake were both delicious. Both were rich and fudgy. This would definitely satisfy a chocolate craving.
If I lived in Rome, I’d probably drop by here pretty frequently. I had samples of cookies which were chewy and flavorful. I also split a Ladybug mousse cake with my mother in law which was amazing. I think she might have stopped by for another one since I’ve left. I wish I had photographed it because it was incredibly cute. If you live in Rome, it’s definitely worth a trip downtown!
