Take the kids to a Trick-or-Treat Cupcake Tasting at The Cake Shop. From 1 to 4 p.m. Oct. 16, pastry chefs Mike and Amanda Joyner will hand out samples of new fall flavors. Costumes are encouraged.
Some of the new flavors include Apple Pie with apple filling and caramel buttercream frosting; Hot Chocolate, with marshmallows and hot chocolate flavored buttercream frosting (see photo, right); Brown Butter Pecan Cake with caramel filling and salted brown butter buttercream frosting; and Gingerbread Pear cupcakes with citrus buttercream frosting.
Kids also will get to help put scary decorations on a Halloween cake, which will be given away at the end of the day.
