If you’ve read my blog enough, you know I can’t pass up a bakery. So when I saw a sign for cupcakes at Artylicious Cakes, I had to stop in. Artylicious Cakes is a bakery in Raleigh, NC. The owner, Iriene Wangsawidjaja, specializes in cake art and has had her cakes featured in magazines as well as at local events and has won awards at the NC State Fair (blue ribbon for a Lorax cake). Her fondant work is gorgeous, and if I were looking for a special occasion cake, I would have her make it. Irene is very sweet, and on my visit, let me and my friend try a number of flavors before deciding. Ultimately, we chose lemonberry, lemon cake with a hint of strawberry and vanilla creme, as our favorite. Also, the chocolate raspberry, hazelnut mocha and black forest are all divine. Her buttercream is so tasty, smooth and silky. I really love the texture of her cakes. She also has cupcakes, cheesecake and macaroons available, and they all look lovely.
