Or what I like to call “I’ll use any excuse to eat sweets at 730 in the morning”.
This weekend I took part in one of the most decadent events I’ve ever had the privilege of experiencing….Sugar Coma (Redux) courtesy of the incredibly talented Shameeka Ayers of The Broke Socialite. As I was unable to join in the festivities of the inaugural Sugar Coma tour back in January, I chomped at the bit to partake in the Redux.
For those of you not lucky enough to live in driving distance of Atlanta, I’ll just sum the event up like this…
Okay, just kidding…
In a nutshell, Sugar Coma is a chauffered tour of local bakeries, sweeteries, cupcakeries, and all around really tasty restaurants. Basically, it really is an excuse to pig out on sweets. (Bet you’re interested now.)
So we started off the day at No Mas Cantina where we tasted Mexican Hot Chocolate and a divine breakfast spread (that unfortunately, my friend and I gorged ourselves on…)
Then we boarded our shuttle and headed straight to Highland Bakery.
Now, as someone who has lived in Atlanta for over a decade, I’m embarrassed to admit that I have never ventured into this bakery. Let’s just say that I won’t make that mistake again.
Then it was down the street to Cacoa Atlanta
where we were greeted by the most adorable business owner ever, Kristen Hard. A beyond talented chef whose creations take her from “bean to chocolate bar”. Seriously…this is something you must check out for yourselves.
Next we hit up Bakeshop where we were treated to these delicious pastries.
And we rounded out the event at Noon Midtown. Again, more insane treats. This time doughnuts were involved.
Not just any doughnuts though…Sumblime Doughnuts. And let’s just say that’s a story for another day.
All in all the event was truly sinful in one of those sugar rush straight to the brain kind of ways. After it was all said and done, I realized that I am one lucky girl to live in a city with such incredible culinary talent.
So- if you’re game, there will be two more Sugar Coma events happening in June in Atlanta. The really good news? Shameeka will be taking her event on the road so you too can experience the thrill of full on sugar shock.
I’ve heard rumblings of a Sugar Coma Charleston.
Who’s with me?
ps. I’m happy to report that I did in fact pace myself. So I only gained 2 lbs instead of 15.
