Calling itself an “all-American home-style bake shop,” Susiecakes has finally opened its doors in Brentwood. First impression: Locals are looking forward to eating their way through the menu. A major feature is their special frosting-filled cupcakes–bocarw reports that orange creamsicle cupcake is rich and creamy, and the orange flavor stands up and asserts itself. Mocha cupcake is also intensely flavored.
Banana pudding is the best in town, raves Lipps, who also loved the moon pie and coconut cupcake. (The menu lists whoopee pie, but not moon pie.) Butterscotch-toffee pudding is delicious, though maybe not for purists.
There’s also a variety of traditional layer cakes, ice box cakes, cheesecakes, pies, and cookies.
