I've really been enjoying the dark chocolate-enrobed cake balls at the three month old Teaspoon Bake Shop. So far I've had the chocolate, red velvet, and banana. All are moist and decadent. The glueten free coconut lime macaroon is also fantastic as are the scones and peanutbutter and Jelly filled vanilla upcakes. That they serve Stumptown coffee only makes it better. A definite welcome addition to the 'nabe.

Cupcakes in Heels further down on Bell, closer to Northern is only about 3 weeks old. All of the cupcakes have designer names: the Prada, Laboutin, Cartier, versace etc. Thursday night is LADIES NIGHT 8-11pm. If you come in wearing couture- Manolo, Versace, Louboutin, Prada, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Hermes, Tiffany, Cartier or David Yurman, you get a FREE cupcake with any purchase. The cupcakes are not Crumb-like mostrosities, but rather medium-sized and all have frosting piped into them so you get some frosting with every bite. The pistcachio-flavored Prada is my favorite. Very tender with a pale green frosting that, in a good way, reminds me of the instant pistacchio pudding that I loved a a child. It works. They had been offering a free cup of Illy coffee with each purchase the first week. And their made to order cakes look outrageous.
