Love for our retailer, Living the Sweet Life, this Valentine’s!
Since I’ll be talking about one retailer each week, I decided to focus my attention, this week and next, to retailers (and e-tailers) who have a particularly good shop for the Valentine’s season.
My focus this week will be on a new bakery in Denver called Living the Sweet Life. This past fall, owner and baker Erika Cunha opened her shop in the Highlands of Denver and has been selling fantastic sweets to people all over the Denver metro area. Click on the website and you begin by seeing mouthwatering red velvet cupcakes (pictured here) that you know are completely moist and delicious.
Take a look at their downloadable menu and you’ll see many other delicious treats ranging from Cinnamon Swirl Sweet Breads to Colorado Cherry Pie to my favorite, the Raspberry Linzer Bars (honestly who doesn’t like raspberry bars). After less than 2 months, Erika’s Huckleberry Pie was reviewed in 5280! This unfortunately is only a seasonal item because Erika goes all the way to Idaho to pick the huckleberries herself! Check out the article and don’t miss all the comments which have great reviews as well!
Where does The Tea Spot fit in do you say? If you can force your finger to keep scrolling past all the scrumptious desserts on the menu, you’ll find us listed at the bottom with the other drinks served at the shop. Six of our signature loose leaf teas are served at Living the Sweet Life. Since they have some cute sitting areas you can go to either sip a cup of tea while munching on one of their treats or take a cup to-go with your box of Valentine’s desserts (we know there was one more cookie in that box before it got to your loved one :) ).
If you haven’t already been there and are looking for a cute, quaint shop with unbelievable delicious (have I said their stuff is delicious yet?) treats to grab for Valentine’s day, or ANY day, then you HAVE to check them out! Call ahead to place any special order you might have. Contact details and address listed below.
Have a Happy Valentine’s Day and go enjoy some desserts with your sweet(tea) ;)
