Delicious Desserts

There are so many fun places to go for delicious desserts in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

One classic location that you should be sure to visit is Cafe Latte on Grand Ave in St. Paul.

I was first introduced to Cafe Latte in college by the girls on my freshman floor.  Since then, I have returned as often as I can find occasions to do so.  Most recently, we went out for Jill’s birthday and shared some cakes and drank some coffee.  We had turtle cake, cheesecake, and some sort of fancy raspberry cake.  

In other desserty news, for as much as I love baking fancy cupcakes, I had yet to visit a fancy cupcake shop.

Friday I decide to change that.

I met up with Kari (who looked adorable in her cute hat) at Sweet Retreat at 50th and France in Edina.  It was a delightful experience.  We chose from a variety of AMAZING looking cupcakes, and then sat outside on an cute bright pink bench, chatted, and ate our cupcakes and chatted.  I had a s’mores cupcake and Kari had a salted caramel.  YUM!

I think we’ll be back.  And I think that you should visit if you haven’t.

Even more than fun treats, I like spending time with my friends, and am trying to soak as much friend time in over the next 17 days.

In other non-desserty news, I’ll be writing for our Women at Hope blog for Hope Community Church this summer while I’m in Uganda.  My first post is up.  Click here to check it out!
