Below are a few choices for anyone in the Denver area looking for great tasting treats.


Looking for unique, great flavors, check out Kelley Kakes. Her flavors are yummy and I can personally attest to this as I’ve tasted many. I’m sure her cakes are just as good if not better than the Blushing Bakeshop from yesterday, anyone up for a taste test?


I’ve found that imagining I’m tasting these flavors fares much better for my waistline then actually tasting so here are a few flavors from Kelley to ponder:


Turtle Cake

Deep rich chocolate with gooey caramel, bits of pecans and chocolate

Boston Crème Pie

Think donuts…now imagine that as your cake. Mmmmm

White Chocolate Cappuccino – Who needs coffee when you can eat caffeine?

Vanilla cake soaked in espresso and filled with white chocolate mousse and chocolate shavings.

Strawberry Champagne

A light, moist cake paired with a fluffy white chocolate berry mousse


Looking for a quick little treat that is good for the environment? Visit Lovely Confections Bakery!

As the world gets smaller we have all become more aware of the environmental impact of everything, even baking.


Even cupcakes have a carbon footprint, but these come with organic and locally grown options. If you are in Denver, Lovely Confections Bakery features yummy treats using as many locally grown and organic ingredients as they can. Not only are the cupcakes a little better for you (and who doesn’t need another reason to eat sweets) but they also support local commerce and help the economy.


Lovely Confections has five daily rotating flavors for only $3 each if you ever need a quick pick me up.


Flavors include:


  • Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Strawberries and Cream
  • Vanilla with Vanilla or Chocolate Frosting
  • Chocolate with Vanilla or Chocolate Frosting
  • Carrot with Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Lemon with Lemon Frosting
  • Coconut with Coconut Frosting

    Mix and match the frosting to the cake, you could have a new treat every day. They also have a feature flavor on the weekends. I would suggest you visit every weekend to find your favorite.  One more thing, each cupcake comes in an adorable little container. Too cute!
