Treat to try: Bakery Gingham’s S’more
I do love the cupcakes at Bakery Gingham. Moist cakes crowned with a mound of sugary icing. So when I saw they would be open for Easter today, I stopped in to get four for my fam and we ate them with our lunch. I also spotted a lonely s’more in the bakery case and it made it home with me too. Bakery Gingham packages their goodies in a pink cardboard box, or with bakery tissue and white paper bags.
The s’more is a good size, about 4 inches square. It’s about an inch tall. A dense layer of graham cracker crust forms the bottom layer. That’s topped with chocolate chips, and then a pile of miniature marshmallows top the whole thing. The marshmallow top is very lightly browned. It’s a chewy bar, the marshmallows are nice and pliable and not sticky. It is a straightforward take on a s’more and the flavor is what you would expect, but not too rich. For the $2.00 price, it’s a very nice treat that you can probably share with at least one other person.
When I got home, I remembered I have a kitchen-grade crème brûlée torch and used it to give the marshmallow topping a much heartier burn (not pictured). That really made the s’more flavor perfect. I think it would be marvelous if they could do this for you in-store when you purchase it. It would also be delightful to see it topped with a big square of homemade marshmallow, but like I said, for $2, it’s a good bite.
