After hearing about Elizabethan Desserts on Chowhound, I decided to go and see for myself. In the Sunshine Nursery off Quail Gardens Drive under the red roof. When I walked in, there was actual baking going on ( I can't remember the last time I went in a bakery and that happened) The only person in there was Elizabeth herself. This bakery specializes in Americana desserts not European. Everything is made from scratch. I got 2 huge chocolate cupcakes (which look like Hostess cupcakes but homemade), an individual size mississippi mud pie made with homemade marshmallows, a individual size coconut cream pie, an individual peanut butter s'more pie (Elizabeth makes her own peanut butter), an Sunshine cupcake (passionfruit and citrus), and a berry buckle. I also tried one of her margarita tarts. I am looking forward to coming back for her homegrown lemon bars and cherry pies. Also, she was very nice to talk to and very passionate about her desserts.
