La Vie En Rose, Bellingham Pastries & More

Such a pretty name. Such delicious pastries. La Vie En Rose was so quiet and cozy. I sat at the window this morning and it was in direct contrast to the busy Holly Street view.

I ate a chocolate croissant and a macaroon; paired them with a pot of rooibos tea. I’d found calm indulgent seclusion.

Those who know him can find my partner at Starbuck’s. Well, you’ll find me at La Vie En Rose…

Icing on the Cake, Bellingham

Icing on the Cake serves fresh baked gourmet cupcakes. We had the pleasure of indulging at the Bellingham Farmers Market today. We sampled many a dish, but icing on the Cake warranted its own spotlight.

My partner and I had ‘black and white’ cupcakes and the kids all chose pink ‘peppermint’ cupcakes.

The black and white is dark chocolate cake with buttercream frosting with dark Belgian chocolate drizzled on top. The peppermint is dark chocolate cake with peppermint schnapps buttercream frosting.

Still with me? Because I was at a loss for words to describe how divine these cupcakes were. My oldest, however, after his first bite said: ‘heaven’. We all agreed Elizabeth Kovacs (traditional Hungarian name) should be strongly encouraged to gift us with a brick and mortar bakery we could be loyal to.

The last time I was this satisfied with a dessert I still lived back East and C. Marretta Bakery on Bell Boulevard in Bayside, NY was the place. Will anyone open a storefront in Bellingham with real cannoli and rainbow cookies?
