How does MP love Two Fat Cats Bakery in Portland? Let her count the ways: 1) Simple, but downright delicious cupcakes with swirls of buttercream frosting. 2) Chocolate chip cookies worthy of a mention in Food & Wine. 3) Sweet and savory pies with picture perfect crusts.
Oh, and there’s the bakeshop itself, which has a great homespun feel. You’ll see vintage cake stands displaying tempting desserts. In the open kitchen, there are mason jars filled with sugar sprinkles and beaters covered in that fabulous, aforementioned frosting. You may also spot a well-loved cookbook or two (aspiring bakers take note).
