I’m usually not a sweets person, because a lot of desserts are either way too rich for me or way too sweet. This is why I tend to stay away from most bakeries and cupcake shops, but for whatever reason whenever I see a Mexican bakery I have to stop and get at least one baked good. The first Mexican dessert I tried was basically a puff pasty with sugar sprinkled on top; not to sweet and not too plain, IT WAS PERFECT. I think that is what started my love for Mexican bakeries.
There’s a Mexican bakery in Lexington across from the restaurant Taqueria Ramirez, and every time I go to that restaurant I always stop in at the bakery. Most of the time they have pretty much the same items (as most bakeries do) cookies, muffins, pretty colored pastries. But last weekend when I went in they had these “little mini sprinkle cakes” that was made out of white cake and were topped with whipped cream and a cherry. They also had “little mini chocolate cakes” that were also topped with whipped cream and a cherry on top.
Considering this was the first time I had seen these little pieces of heaven, and it was my first time coming in on an earlier Saturday afternoon, I’m wondering if they are just a weekend treat. They pretty much seemed like a cupcake, but a million times better! The only thing I’m still stumped on is how they managed to make the sprinkles stay on the sides of the cake without any icing.
