We have two magnets that relentlessly pull us from our home in East Austin to the Bouldin Creek neighborhood. Once Over Coffee Bar and Sugar Mama’s Bake Shop.
Sugar Mama is famous for her cupcakes and they’re fine but she really shines when she’s knocking out dessert bars. Specifically, her lemon curd bar which could inspire a hallelujah chorus in even the most jaded of sweet tooths.
We’ve been patronizing this little shop since the day she opened and this mama really knows how to run her business.
We love her hard and fast rule on day olds. Deep discounts for her baked goods are offered when they’re slightly past their prime.
The only poor showing we’ve had from this shop is the pecan bar. The low grade pecans she uses stand as stark contrast to her other, high grade goods.
We’re not holding that against her though. She remains our favorite source of scratch sweets in Austin Texas.
