I have been looking for a bakery to provide birthday, anniversary and celebration cakes for our guests to surprise their special someone. Well, I think I have finally found one that I absolutely love! It’s Pearl’s Bake Shoppe on West Main Street in Charlottesville, VA.
We had purchased a cake for a couple who eloped here last year and they were very pleased with it. It was a delicious carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Not only did it taste good and look good it smashed nicely on their faces (where we got this tradition I really do not know). After that event I promptly forgot about Pearl’s Bake Shoppe and went back to my regular baker for the celebration cakes.
So last week when one of guests wanted to get a decadent white cake with white frosting for his girlfriend’s birthday celebration I thought of Pearl’s again. Well, the cake was a huge success! It was decorated very simply but elegantly as he requested. They loved it so much that they took the rest of the cake home with them to continue the celebration for a couple more days.
When I went to pick up the cake I saw their display of cupcakes and couldn’t resist getting a Peanut Butter & Jam cupcake for Dan and a vegan Carrot Cupcake for me. Let me tell you they didn’t last very long.
If you are visiting with us here at Foxfield Inn you should stop into Pearl’s for an afternoon treat. We’re sure you will enjoy their cupcakes!
