Starting this week, MIAbites will offer a new feature each Saturday called “Saturday Sweets” by contributor, Amber Love Bond. Designed to introduce you to new bakeshops, creative desserts and decadent sweet stuff to satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth.
We’ve all had that moment, the one where you’re sitting at your desk and suddenly need a cupcake in your life – I know I can’t be the only one!
If you struggle from the constant need to fulfill your sweet tooth and you happen to work in or around Brickell, you’re in luck! Tru Tru Cakes & More is here to save us! Miami-based sisters Alejandra and Daniela Calbimonte are baking their hearts out using recipes inspired by their great grandmother.
These very friendly sisters are greeting Brickell with a yummy selection of cupcakes and other treats as well as soups, sandwiches, and spoon salads for those who don’t want just cupcakes for lunch – not that I would judge you if you did! Cupcake flavors vary but all promise to be made with the best quality ingredients and always baked fresh each morning.
The cupcakes are iced with a unique dome shape that closely resembles a scoop of ice cream. It’s creamy, almost buttery texture is a perfect complement to the density of the cake. I recommend opening up the liner and using one of their cute eco-friendly spoons to eat the cupcake just to be sure your cake to icing ratio is perfect! The mini mousse cakes are almost too pretty to eat and with so many options it’s hard to pick just one. On my first visit I opted for the Mini Chocolate Mousse Cake – absolutely delicious! It was rich and fluffy with the perfect amount of sweetness with handmade chocolate pieces decorating the top.
Alejandra and Daniela are working hard to bring only the best into their bakery. From the small details to the big ones everything is handmade from real ingredients, even the flour used to make their focaccia bread is made from scratch by a local farmer. Tru Tru Cakes is also proudly serving Panther Coffee and JoJo Tea to help wake you up from your soon to be sugar coma.
The bakery is open Monday – Friday from 8am to 7pm. Be sure to stop by and check them out! I’ve been eyeing their Key Lime Pie in a jar so it won’t be long before I’m back!
