Portland: Sweetpea Baking Company

11th September 2012

This is my first time to visit Sweetpea Baking Co. after my stopover at Food Fight Grocery in SE Portland.

Vegan Raspberry Lemon Cupcake
It is a lemon flavoured cupcake covered with housemade raspberry buttercream. The pink frosting looks so bright and fun for me. I could taste both the sweetness and tartness from the buttercream, but I did not think the load of buttercream is necessary. I am not a fan of vegan buttercream. It tends to be heavy for me. But I do like the cupcake and raspberry minus the buttercream, it’s very good. A half cupcake was enough for me.

Vegan Oatmeal Spice Cake Slice
This cake cannot be made nut-free according to their website. It is a spice cake made with quick oats, iced with vanilla buttercream, and topped with our almond coconut filling. Again, I cannot finish the slice due to the overly sweet vanilla buttercream. I only finished 1/4 of it. But I loved the spice cake with the almond coconut filling without the buttercream itself.

I am not sure why I ordered items with loads of frosting during a humid day in July, I bet Sweetpea Baking Co. carries amazing and yummy cookies. I hope to try their other desserts, not just desserts with heaps of frosting (hehe).
