Downtown Boulder has become known for great little eateries, bookstores and coffee houses. And considering the town is usually named one of America’s fittest cities by various media publications, many of these local boutique shops and restaurants are organic or health-conscious. Along comes Tee and Cakes, a refreshing and decadent change to compliment the earthy cuisine in Boulder. This shop is for the most sophisticated sweet tooth who has no fear of trying the most unique gourmet desserts. The atmosphere is cheery and as the name suggests, one can even buy a cupcake themed t-shirt while sipping coffee and enjoying cake. One of the owners is a graphic artist who has designed a great selection of “sweet” apparel.
Since their opening, Tee and Cakes has received rave reviews both locally and on a national level. In 2009, Food Network featured their now infamous Bacon Chocolate Cupcakes on their show Unwrapped.
Last week I picked up a birthday cake for my son. He turned five and we were having a little birthday party for him at a local ice skating rink. I always get my cakes from Kim, the owner of Tee and Cakes. Her cakes are so charming and stunning to look at and deliciously moist and flavorful to eat. Every cake is unique and special. And I always go to Kim…. for every occasion . . .
While I was waiting for it I made the mistake of looking in the glass case containing these sinful looking brownies. I had to have one… then I had to have the recipe! The brownie was so chocolaty…. fudgey (is that a word?) and moist. Everything they make is outstanding – and if you live anywhere near Denver or Boulder, please stop and pay them a visit.
Thank you to Kim and Brian of Tee and Cakes for sharing another wonderful recipe with us!
