While dreams of Sugar Plums danced in their heads...
There isn’t much that is more intoxicating than walking into a bakery and smelling the sweet breads, the cakes, and the cookies fill the air.
Sugar Plum Bakery in Virginia Beach is a hometown favorite that has been around since 1985.
It is a non-profit organization that centers its focus on educating and helping folks with disabilities acquire skills that will be valuable to them, enabling them to be productive members of our society.
Sugar Plum Bakery sits conveniently near Laskin Road and is one of the most recognizable buildings along that stretch of road. The bright “plum” color of the building makes it difficult to pass by. When you walk into the bakery, you are greeted by smiling faces and outstanding customer service. Everyone is very happy that you are there and are appreciative of the fact that you stopped by. The glass cases are lined with a variety of baked goods. If you can dream it up, it can be made.
One of their most popular items is the Mozart cake (a personal favorite). This cake is just about as decadent as it gets. You start with a double layer white cake, with a buttercream frosting between them. On top of the buttercream frosting in the center is a raspberry sauce that is spread atop, which basically separates the two layers of cake.
The outer layer is a hardened chocolate frosting that covers the top and sides of the cake. Finally, the cake is decorated with buttercream roses in any choice of color, along with a message. It is always encouraged when you are planning to purchase a cake that you pre-order it. It is not always necessary, but during busy seasons, it is a good idea.
If you are a Macaroon fan, they also have a selection of the largest Macaroons I have ever seen in my life. So, the next time you are in the market for a cake, or just have a sweet tooth, stop by Sugar Plum Bakery. You are sure to find something there to make you smile.
