SugarMamas – new arrival on South 1st

Owners Olivia and Steve have two new arrivals, one took much longer in planning than the other, but was just as much a labor of love. This evening saw the opening party for SugarMamas bakeshop at 1905 South 1st, next door to SecretOktober, their 2nd new arrival.

Their first new arrival was young Jackson, I never asked, but I guess 6-9 months old, their first child. After careful planning and a change of direction a few times, SugarMamas, not just another cake shop. They have an innovative, interesting menu of specialty cakes and pies. While there, I tried a Bettie Page cup cake, described as “Buttery vanilla cupcake topped with a decadent chocolate buttercream ‘do. It’ll knock your bangs off!” and a French Toast cup cake, described as “Maple cupcake topped with a swirl of cinnamon sugar and finished off with cinnamon cream cheese frosting. What a great way to start your day!” – They were the business and lived up to their descriptions.

Both had sweet icing, but not overly so; both had light fluffy base and were delicious in that sort of, I could only eat two way, rather than that sort of hollow, “I’ll have a dozen to go” style.

SugarMamas will be open from 11-7, so its not a quick stop by on the way to the office in the morning, but somewhere to visit when you’ve got something to celebrate, or when you need a boost mid-afternoon. Olivia tells me they’ll do drip coffee, both hot and iced but are not looking to encroach on the business of the specialty coffee shops.

Still, stop by and see them.

[In the interests on transparency I should declare I wrote them and asked when they were opening, they invited me to the party, and before anyone thinks otherwise, it takes a lot more than two cup cakes to buy me, and I’ll be paying for any future delights!]
