So much deliciousness in one day. So much flavor in tiny little packages. So much interesting people. So much fun!
When you get the perfect combination of sweet sugary desserts and freshly brewed coffee, it’s a party in your mouth. But really it is. You need energy to party and that definitely comes from caffeine and sugar.
Frosted Cakery is on Wishon Avenue, two doors down from Cafe Corazon. Right after walking in the doorway, you are met with the cheerful smell of cake and the bright blue walls accented with black and white decorations. It basically looks like a quaint place to find cakes.
On their website you can find multiples flavors that are available at one time or another, but during our visit, there were about 15 selections.
Julianne tried a French toast and bacon cupcake (yes, cupcake!) and it was breakfast flavor in cupcake form. The moistness of the cake with the maple flavor tasted just like a waffle in the morning. Plus, with the added taste of caramelized pecans, it was the perfect blend of southern sweetness.
As for Brooke, she ate the lemon and raspberry cupcake. Although the cupcake itself was just vanilla (how plain after breakfast-flavored, right? WRONG!), the yummy vanilla bean frosting made the delicacy quite rich and plenty sweet enough. The raspberry was tart and lemon drizzle was very… lemony… there’s really no other adjective to describe the lemon flavor you all know. However simple, she didn’t regret the choice of cake.
Since we’re teenagers, we drink more coffee than’s probably healthy, and more time at Starbucks then the gym, let’s face it… no one goes to the gym anymore. So, we found a great hole-in-the-wall place to veg and enjoy quality coffee.
All their beans are guaranteed quality and premere tastiness. They come from many different soil-rich regions and each have a distinct flavor. Something we appreciated about the café is they really care about customer service and the bean’s quality.
Whether fair trade, organic or slightly pricy, their goal is flavor and preserving the coffee’s natural flavors and sugars, which is why it’s ground and brewed by the cup. They’re passionate about coffee, not profit.
Both of these locations are located in the Tower District on Wishon Avenue, right off of Olive. The Tower District may have some older features and buildings, but that part of Fresno is starting to rebirth. Wishon Avenue is just the beginning of what could be a street full of homegood popular places.
So please, get on a caffeine and sugar high, and let us know if the products were worth the stomach ache.
