Small Cakes Cupcakery in Cary NC

Small Cakes Cupcakery and Creamery was founded by Jeff Martin in Overland Park KS, in 2008.  (I used to live in Overland Park:-) According to their website it is now in 160 locations in the USA.  They have been featured on The FoodNetwork and The View.  USA Today lists Small Cakes as one of the top ten cupcake places to try in the country.
I like their slogan..."Maybe a cupcake will help?"  It sure can't hurt!
As luck would have it, there are eight locations in North Carolina.  We decided to check out the Cary location https://www.smallcakesnc.com.
Here is a quote from their website...
"Smallcakes bakes and frosts 12 signature flavors of cupcakes every morning! 
Smallcakes features seasonal and special flavors."
I love their unique decor. I would describe it as whimsical elegance.
I have been several times and each time I am welcomed with fresh made  
and beautifully decorated cupcakes.  The cupcake itself is moist with a luscious creamy frosting.

Check out some of their daily specials in July.
We were nearing Maggie's nap time.  She was a bit on edge until she had a few bites of a delicious cupcake.  This brings me back to their slogan...
"Maybe a cupcake will help?" 
And it did! What a happy baby:-)


Thanks Small Cakes.
We had a great time.

A Visti to Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC

It has been a while since I have visited a new restaurant.  I did a google search and came up with Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC.  Sounded wonderful so I called Cindy and off we went on a restaurant adventure.  Here is a quote from their website.... "A refined take on traditional Southern cuisine. That's the essence of Rye Bar & Southern Kitchen, our onsite restaurant in the heart of Raleigh's vibrant downtown. Executive Chef Michael Rigot's seasonal menus feature the freshest, healthiest produce and meats, all from local North Carolina farms. A main dining room, private dining room, and outdoor patio provide an abundance of seating options. Craft beers, uncommon cocktails, and premium wines head the liquid refreshment line-up."
The restaurant itself is located in downtown Raleigh in Raleigh Marriott City Center. The Bar was lovely.  The night we were there it was packed.  Lively place to be. They brought this lovely platter to our table, they call i…

Winkler Bakery in Old Salem NC

WINKLER BAKERY521 SOUTH MAIN STREETConstructed 1800, restored 1968
One place Gale and I knew we had to visit was the bakery in Old Salem.  I have enjoyed the Moravian cookies over the years but everyone has told me I had to try the sugar cake.
Look at all the temptations....Yummy:-)


A bit of history....






The sugar cake was amazing.  We took it back to our room and enjoyed the yummy sweetness in front of the beautiful fireplace in our room.  We also shared a bottle of local wine.  What a lovely day:-)
Happy Travels Everyone! KathieyV:-)

Childress Vineyards in Lexington NC

There are a ton of wineries in NC.  Childress is one that Cindy and I had the opportunity to visit last Nov.  It is beautiful.

We signed up for the winery tour.  One of the first things they asked was "is there anyone here who has not heard the Childress name?"  I think Cindy and I were the only ones to raised a reluctant hand.  The inaudible gasps were deafening.  We soon learned he is a NASCAR guy and NASCAR is huge in NC.  Here is a quote from their site....

"By opening the doors to Childress Vineyards in 2004, NASCAR team owner Richard Childress fulfilled a longtime dream that grew from the days when he first began racing in California and visited wineries with friends. What began as camaraderie and good times soon became an engaging passion for world-class wines and then the vision to build a world-class winery."

We visited right before Christmas.  I loved the entry door.
Let the tour begin....
