Opening: Sweet Cakes Bakery
At any rate, one of these three bakeries did a very smart series of things at the end of last week. First, it appeared (with the other two) in a TOC article. Then, it got written up in the Chicagoist, which was accompanied by an intriguing photo of a hard-boiled egg firmly nestled inside a corn muffin. Finally, it answered the phone when we called and supplied us with a menu. Here now, we reward those efforts with a Monday morning coming out party. That hard-boiled egg in corn muffin? It has a price! $2! Cakes come in literally seven different pricing configurations based on acreage and can be special ordered; mini cookies are merely a quarter (6/$1); and brioche are available in both à tête and bostock formats. The key thing to remember is that every new bakery deserves at least two trial runs: once during the week, once on a weekend, and both times in the morning.
