A Cookie & a Cupcake

This is all you had to say...

Need they say more?

While I don’t think I could tire of writing about Chicago’s food scene, I do plan to take Elizabites on the road when I travel. I had to hit up lovely Cleveland for a work conference last week, and somehow had a moment to stumble upon a very cute cupcake shop called A Cookie and a Cupcake. Syndee Klingenberg and Wendy Thompson, two former pastry chefs from Cleveland’s famous Dante restaurant, opened the tiny pink spot just a couple of weeks before. I saw way more cupcakes than cookies, but maybe that’s because I was paying more attention to the classic flavors from lemon to carrot, as well as creative varieties like PB lovers (chocolate cake, peanut butter crunch, and peanut butter buttercream) and the Grasshopper (chocolate chip cake with mint buttercream). I had to wait 20 minutes for the fresh batch to cool off, but I fell in love with the red velvets, first with the sweet cream cheese frosting and then with the dusting of dehydrated raspberry powder on top. The pastry chefs make gorgeous wedding cakes as well, great custom cupcakes and win the award for cutest logo. 2173 Professor Ave., Cleveland, Ohio, 216.344.9433
