There’s a few things you should know.
1. I’m in Savannah, Georgia!
2. Last night I rediscovered pimento cheese and ate approximately fifty four dipped pita chips.
3. Yesterday I announced that I was going to exercise and then walked upstairs to get in my gym shorts, fell onto my bed and took a nap instead.
4. I found the coolest (and let me repeat coolest) bakery in downtown Savannah. It kinda makes me want to live here; I’m not gonna lie.
We stumbled into Back in the Day bakery yesterday after my parent’s pastor recommended it, saying it was “the best bread outside of San Francisco”.
I love it when people say that.
Anyways, all I heard was the word “bread” and we were on our way. And when we arrived, what we found was the cutest artisan bakery that I’d ever been in!
Back in the Day bakes all their bread from scratch every morning and their desserts are some of the most artful I’ve seen. They had such treats like lavender bars, red velvet cupcakes and huge, old fashioned chocolate chip cookie sandwiches with vanilla buttercream. Just standing in line makes you smile.
Most of all, I love that their mission statement is “creating desserts and baking breads that reflect a time lost in baking arts”.
I mean, how perfect and beautiful is that? It’s exactly what I aim to convey daily on this blog!
The cupcakes alone almost made me cry. As did the deliciously creamy gingerbread chai tea I slurped down while I drooled.
And yes, I tried to buy all the wall art you see below but they (of course) kindly referred me to Etsy instead.
So yes, I just felt compelled to spread the love a little bit with you guys because places like this truly touch my heart. If you’re ever in Savannah, make sure to stop by…they are super nice and carry mini plastic ballerina cupcake toppers (I bought three). You never know when you might need something like that!
I like to be prepared for any and all cake decorating situations.
