Sweet, Sweet Nothings

Dearest Antonia,

In light of our last agonizing gourmet tête-à-tête, I’ve decided to set you gluten free. No, no. No time for tears. I’ve left you a token of my confections: Cecilia’s Bakeshop goodies.

Heal your heart with Art Institute alum Cecilia Washington’s dietary-optional hearth works: cakes like Black Forest and strawberry and seasonal “raw” pies like cherry chocolate and mango peach are agave-sweetened, made-to-order masterpieces.

In time, you’ll come to relish her regular oatmeal cranberry and chocolate chip cookie dough drops at Whole Foods and Sevananda just as I do. As you venture into the frozen foods section, I pray that your heart will warm to thoughts of rolled oats and a life without dairy, eggs … or me.

And beloved: Please know that though she’s tinkering with a ginger recipe for fall, I would never tinker with your heart.



Cecilia’s Bakeshop (678-643-9502 or ceciliasbakeshop.com). Cookie dough available at Sevananda, 467 Moreland Avenue, Little Five Points (404-681-2831).
