Sweet Life Petite
Two sisters have sweetened life for University of Oregon students, providing them with a reliable sugar-rush crutch just blocks from campus at the new boutique location of their successful bakery. People line up out the door for brownies, cookies, seasonal desserts (chai spice cheesecake with candied ginger-graham crust), vegan- and gluten-free pastries, quiches and espresso served up in a friendly bakery/cafe environment. The sweets are seriously sculptural: killer custom orders execute go-to designs like rainbows and baseballs with ease, and even satisfy silly and gross fantasies with cat butt-shaped cupcakes and zombie face cakes, complete with dangling and dislocated eyeballs. When you can’t tell the difference between a pineapple cake and an actual pineapple, you know there’s magic afoot.
