Bakery's a thing of the past? Well my small beautiful town eliminated both well established and well loved bakery's to make room for a cat boarding school and a bourgeois strip mall. Safeway is what I have. Yuck. When I went to Napa this past July we kept driving by this amazing pink and white stripped building with an old time sign out front "ButterCream" it said. I was hooked with the pink and white stripes but when I found out it was a bakery I had to stop. Inside was like stepping into a time warp. Glass cases filled with danishes, doughnuts, pink frilly cakes. It smelled sweet, amazingly sweet. So sweet that my little boy plugged his noise and was like "what's that smell" as loud as he could say. "Sugar, it's sweet sweet sugar", I said. Part of me wishes that ButterCream was in my town but the other part me is happy that I am not faced with temptation on a regular basis.
