Long story short, we made some big mistakes with a client and I needed to smooth things over. Nothing really says "mah bad" better than baked goods. I'm usually at a loss for family-owned bakeries in Huber (besides Old Glory, which is pretty out of my way) - but last week Dayton Dining/Dayton Most Metro had a little blurb about a place on 202 that I wanted to check out. It sits in the partially hot pink parking lot that used to be Patty Cakes, just past Harshman.
I picked out a myriad of goodies for my customer, then something for me and Mr. FvF to split after dinner. After I got to talking to the gals that work there (who couldn't have been sweeter), she stuffed another sweet into the cardboard box for me - an orange cupcake. She said to imagine Hostess's old orange-filled cupcakes, but a hundred times better.
She couldn't have been more spot-on in her recommendations. We split the orange cupcake - a mild orange cake topped and filled with orange icing and whipped cream, and the peanut butter cookie bar - a square of peanut butter cookie, topped with chocolate ganache, peanut butter frosting, and PB cookie crumbs.
Both of the sweet treats were spectacular. Frankly, much better than I was expecting. They were delightfully sweet without being so rich that it hurts either your teeth or your tummy, well-executed, and presented nicely. I know where I'll be going from now on for any kind of baked goods if I'm in the Huber Heights area - whether it's for a client or for myself.
