Cupcakes, Crêpes and Cream

I was recently in Denver for a few days. It was my first visit to Colorado. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see much of the city other than the 16th Street Mall area … I didn’t have a car. But fortunately, I had the 16th Street Mall to keep me entertained … since I didn’t have a car. If you’ve been to downtown Denver then you know what I’m talking about. Shops and restaurants and restaurants and restaurants.

I managed to eat at many of them.

And I even stumbled on a few treats.

Stop 1: Mermaids Bakery and Pie House

IMG_0555

Such a cute logo. The shop is quite small, but neat because you have a view of all the action behind the counter right from the street. Not that you can tell any of that by this picture. Sorry, I was sidetracked by the logo.

IMG_0860

I ordered a small box of four cupcakes. You know. A snack.

Three chocolate variations and one vanilla.

IMG_0866

One vanilla with cinnamon that turned out to be the winner.

(Cinnamon Churro – vanilla cake flavored with pure Saigon Cinnamon, vanilla buttercream sprinkles with sugar glitter and more cinnamon)

I don’t know how that happened. Chocolate is such a favorite for me, but so many times I lean towards vanilla cupcakes.

I dunno.

I contemplated it while eating my next treat.

Stop 2: Crêpes ‘n Crêpes

IMG_0613

Okay, this was so much fun. A friend and I sat at the counter for breakfast and watched crêpe after crêpe being made. It was really quite mesmerizing.

This is Logan. He made a ton of crêpes for our viewing pleasure.

Here, I’ll show you how…

IMG_0581

Drop some crêpe batter on a hot plate. : )

IMG_0588

Spread it around in a circular motion with a miniature windshield wiper thingamajig thingy.

IMG_0584

And keep spreading until it’s super thin.

Look at that steam.

IMG_0634

This is Jose. He made a bunch of crêpes, too. Non stop. It was almost like a sport with these guys. Lots of action and teamwork. They were really focused on what they were doing and what the person next to them was doing. Ready to jump in and fill or fold or move them to another plate at any moment.

IMG_0600

And if they couldn’t, someone else was ready to jump in at all times.

IMG_0608

There were several of these hot plates going at the same time and never any of them empty.

IMG_0632

When ready… lift it off the plate.

IMG_0597

Fill it. Fold it.

IMG_0612

And repeat. And repeat.

You can have them filled savory or sweet with anything from eggs and bacon to bananas and nutella.

I recommend the ratatouille crêpe for the savory. I even recommend it over something sweet. What’s the matter with me?

IMG_0637

It was kinda sad when our breakfast was ready, because it had been so fun watching all the action.

IMG_0602

And the staff was pretty entertaining, too.

IMG_0815

So, naturally we had to go back at night for dessert.

Stop 3: Lovely Confections Bakery

IMG_0889

This cupcake shop is several minutes from the 16th Street Mall area, but I had to check it out based on a recommendation from Cupcake Julie.

So my friend and I took a quick cab ride to investigate.

IMG_0922

I love how the cupcakes are decorated with different sizes and colors of sprinkles.

IMG_0933

And I loooooove these chocolate sprinkles. I must acquire some immediately.

IMG_0940

All of the cupcakes were yummy with this chocolate one coming in third. Again, I don’t have an answer for myself.

IMG_0946

Second was this vanilla cupcake. The strawberry frosting was to die for and that’s saying a lot since fruit isn’t really my thing.

Also, hello … are these the sweetest baking cups or what.

IMG_0949

But this was my favorite. The Bees Knees.

No, for real. That’s it’s name, too. It was a lavendar cupcake with a honey lemon buttercream. Amazing!

IMG_0892

This is Porche. Lovely Confections is her shop. Thanks for making our cab ride so worth the drive.

Stop 4, 5, 6 and 7: Amore Gelato

IMG_0970

Back on 16th street was this little gem. I wanted to pack this store up and bring it home in my suitcase.

I’m now completely in love with gelato.

IMG_0963

And I’m especially in love with Dulce de leche gelato. So thick. So creamy.

I don’t know if I can go back to regular ice cream anymore. Okay, you know that’s not true … but still. It was soooo goooooood.

I did find a brand since I’ve been back called Ciao Bella Gelato. It has a dulce de leche gelato that’s delish.

IMG_0967

And like the store, it also carries sorbets, but I really couldn’t tell you much about that.

I guess it’s a good thing I wasn’t free to roam the city in search of more sweets.

But if I had been with car, do you know of any Denver sweet stops I’ll be sad I missed?

Oh yum, those cupcakes look delic. I think the Bees Knees would top a choc cake anytime. Thanks for sharing.

Judy Anderson said...

Wow, that’s my kind of trip. So much fun seeing how the crepes were made. I agree… there’s just something amazing about a really good vanilla cupcake with creamy smooth frosting! :P

That looks like my sight seeing!! Everything looks so delicious, but especially those crepes! It’s been hard to find good crepes in most of the places I’ve lived. My faves were at The Merry Table in Portland, ME! Thanks for sharing, Bakerella!

Raelynn said...

I agree with Sami…you were here in Denver and didn’t tell us. Thanks for these reviews, I’m new to the Mile High City so I will have to give these places a go….I have been dying to go to D Bar, which is Pastry Chef Keegan Gerhard place, and it’s on 17th Street, you could have walked there! :-)

Karen said...

I grew up in a suburb of Denver ~ none of those places were there when I was there. Can you share why you were in Denver???? I know Food Network films a lot of things there…..?????? Hmmmmm????

LB said...

Thanks so much for the suggestions! I’ll be in Denver in a few weeks and MUST get a Nutella crepe! I am currently looking for places to go, and this helped a lot. Thanks. :)

Dawn-Renée said...

Raelynn, D Bar ROCKS!!! And the crepes place is my fave. Haven’t tried Lovely Confections, but guess where I’m going tomorrow???

Love, love Denver. :) Prolly won’t ever move anywhere else after 13 years of bliss here.

LC’s Bee’s Knees are amazing:-) but my ultimate favorite is the Salted Caramel Cupcake

Crepes with Nutella and banana is brilliant! So fun to eat your way through a new area.

August 12, 2010 11:35 PM

Melissa said...

Haha the minute I saw you say you now loved Gelato I was going to recommend Ciao Bella! Everything they make is amazing their gelato is fabulous and the sorbet is like a miracle. It’s somehow creamy which I feel like sorbet never is and the flavors oh mah gahd the flavors!! Blood Orange is to die for and Blackberry cabernet holds its own too…as does everything else. Ok, I need to make a trip to the freezer now! If only that lavender cupcake were in there too all my desires would be fulfilled!

August 12, 2010 11:36 PM

Julie @ Willow Bird Baking said...

LOADS of goodies in this post! I love gelato, too, and am sort of a newbie to it. I also love to watch crepes being made — it’s sort of magical.

Rachel said...

I live in Denver and can testify that Lovely Confections are my favorite! My friends and I did a cupcake tour of Denver a couple years ago, a link to pictures are below. Across the street from Lovely Confections is The Shoppe. I don’t like their style of cake as much (sweeter and spongier) but they have really fun, kid-like flavors.

My favorite Denver treat spot THIS year is Sweet Action Ice Cream on Broadway. They have the most interesting, tasty flavors. I love Biscuits and Jam, Salted Butterscotch, and Cherry Chocolate Chip.

Lovely Confections also uses local and organic ingredients besides being absolutely delicious!

melanie said...

I may be silly, but I could not stop staring at the jar of Nutella…I think I’m officially inspired to make some banana nutella crepes for breakfast this weekend!!! Mmmm!!!

Sara C. said...

I’m going to second Sweet Action Ice Cream. 4 words: Stranahan’s Whiskey Ice Cream. I know, whiskey ice cream sounds 18 kinds of crazy, and it is. But in a delicious kind of way, the flavors are surprisingly complimentary. But perhaps my favorite flavor is the Blackberry Lavender Ice Cream.

Also, the Shoppe has a breakfast cereal bar. I’m intrigued. I’ve only ever gotten their cupcakes.

August 12, 2010 11:51 PM

Bekki said...

The Ciao Bella Key Lime Graham gelato is TO DIE FOR. Like, it’s so amazing, I actually will not buy it anymore unless someone else will be over for dinner because I will eat a whole container in 10 minutes flat.

why bakerella, thank you for combining my favorite 3 things that begin with C. Actually, I take that back. You forgot some delicious cookies. So…maybe next time we could hit up a cookie place with you, eh?

SarahB said...

Oooh! Thank you for all these suggestions! My husband works about a block away from the 16th street mall but somehow we’ve never made it to any of these places!

Those all look so delicious! And I love LOVE Ciao Bella gelato. Their blood orange sorbetto is to die for.

Why go sight seeing when Bakerella takes us sweet-seeing? Thanks for the AbFAB tour, Ms. B…..I’m feeling a little mile-high sugar-high just looking at the sweet treats!

crepes n crepes! I went to Denver during memorial day weekend. And on the last day of the visit we went to crepes n crepes only to find out they had closed 20 minutes ago. I was extremely sad. Glad you got to try it though!

Heidi German said...

Well heck, I live in Denver (okay, a suburb) but I’ve never heard of any of those places you visited. I don’t get downtown much! I have been to the Shoppe, and loved their cuppies. Will definitely put these places on my list!

Jessica @ Grizzly Bear Modern said...

Rachel and Sara are right, Sweet Action Ice Cream is the best!!! It’s in Cherry Creek, just south of downtown, and you MUST try next time you’re in Denver! I don’t even live there but whenever I go visit my mom we end up eating ice cream every night! which explains why I gain 5 lbs. every time I go to Colorado… Sweet Action is definitely my favorite, but Bonnie Brae and Little Man are two other really fun ice cream spots. Hope you get a chance to go back!

Michelle said...

This is too funny. We were also in Denver this weekend and also were obsessed with Crepes & Crepes and Amore Gelato. Crepes & Crepes has incredible happy hour deals . . . any crepe for $4!! And I tried a bunch of gelatos but ended up with the chocolate hazelnut and LOVED it. Now I see it was a shame that I didn’t try dulce de leche!

Too bad we didn’t run into you! I would have made you autograph something so I could tuck it into my cake pop book when I buy it! :)

Wow – makes me want to hop a plane to Denver. I love cupcakes and just last night whipped up several different confections for a work party today (baking is my job security!). Chocolate chip with chocolate ganache frosting, vanilla (flavored with madagascar bourbon vanilla) with strawberry icing and fresh strawberry garnish, french vanilla with chocolate buttercream frosting and shaved chocolate on top….I love em all!

Jem said...

I’m so stoked you were in Denver! Next time, if you need a car, I’d be happy to chauffer you around town! :o)Two places I would take anyone visiting Denver to…1) Racine’s off of about 7th & Sherman. I’ve never had a meal that was anything less than awesome, but their desserts are to die for. Their Brownie a la Mode is famous and delicious, but my new love is their Flourless “Paris” Chocolate Cake, covered in fluffy whipped cream and yummy berries. Mmmmm… 2) Happy Cakes Bakeshop in the Highlands area of Denver. They always have new flavors and something for everyone…even vegan cupcakes! In fact, I believe they sell cake pops :o) My favorite flavor of cupcake is Pom Poms (covered in Trix cereal). They have a ton of different flavors: Blackbird’s Pomegranate Margarita, Maple Bacon, Arnold Palmer, Trail Mix, Snickerdoodle, Sticky Bun, Peppermint Patty, Lemon Drop…so many to choose from! Hope you come back to visit soon!!

My very first “real” job in high school was when I was living in Japan, and I worked at a Japanese crepe shop making those crepes all day. My fave was rum raisin with ice cream – yum.

And thanks to the poster with the source for those chocolate sprinkles. My fave Seattle cupcake shop uses them and they melt in your mouth so perfectly I’ve been wanting to use them at home too!

those crepes remind me of france! i had the most incredible nutella crepe right in front of the eiffel tower.

and those chocolate sprinkles look like the ones that sprinkles uses on their… either milk chocolate or dark chocolate cupcakes… yumyum!

Kristi said...

OMG, the places I could tell you that you missed! Little Man Ice Cream is the best.ever. Not only is the ice cream, sorbet and gelato awesome, the atmosphere is so cool.
http://littlemanicecream.com/

Next time you must try Snooze for breakfast! Can you say Pineapple Upside Down cake pancakes? Everything there is divine!

If you like a little bit of spice, 8 Rivers is an awesome dinner locale. It’s Jamaican cuisine and the smoked jerk dishes are to die for!

Oh I could go on and on…

I’m sooo in love with crepes at the moment! I did a post on them a few months ago on my blog ( http://www.madewithpink.com ). I discovered that my fav combo was Nutella with some French salted caramel. Soo delicous! I’ll be going to Paris tomorrow for the weekend and can’t wait to try one of the famous creperies I’ve heard rave reviews about!

If anyone is interested in making Crepes they can get the recipe here: http://www.madewithpink.com/2010/06/salted-caramel-nutella-crepes-french.html

You gotta let us know when you’re headed to town – we would have played tour guide/chauffeur for you the entire time you were here!

Sorry you missed Happy Cakes Bakeshop (www.happycakes.com). They’ve won the Top Cupcake for the 3rd year straight this year! Soooo worth it to have to risk paying a deductible to parallel park in the Highlands!

Come back! we’ll show you all of the good stuff you missed!

Next time, be sure you go to Hammonds Candies, an old-fashioned, family-run candy factory. They offer factory tours with samples (yum!) and are a cab-ride away from downtown Denver. We went in March and had a fab time – it was WELL worth the cab fare. Be warned that the factory store is enticingly dangerous!!

Seanna Lea said...

If you come to Boston, you can join me at Mr. Crepe in Davis Square, Somerville or at Johnny D’s across the street for an oatmeal that I actually travel over an hour to get. Yum!

(There is also a number of cupcake places, but I do not recommend Kickass Cupcakes. They tend to be more of a dry cupcake novelty place.)

I’m a breakfast girl… morning vittles at Snooze (also in Ft. collins) and also brunch at Panzano’s are both fantastic. I don’t think I’ll live anywhere but Colorado… Glad you had a great time and thanks for some recommendations, too!

I just have to mention, when we were in Paris Nutella Crepes were everywhere and they were so yummy. Did you know Nutella is the substitute for peanut butter over in France.

I’m so bummed we didn’t know you were in town. I’ve lived in Denver the past 27 years and have never even heard of those cupcake places. The crepes one has other locations I’ve just never been to one of those either. Oh to be a tourist…I’m loving all the suggestions of the locals as well.

Thanks for giving me a few new places to check out!

Yummy! I live in south Denver and rarely make it into downtown. Now I have excuses to make it there to try out these places. That cinnamon cupcakes sounds heavenly! I love crepes too! Thanks for pointing out these gems to me!

It has been a while since the last time I visited your site, It is ALWAYS fun and very interesting to read you, this time (once again) you Thrilled me with your story. For a moment I even forgot about everything and you made me travel to Denver. You are AWESOME, I love your page and like this wonderful report of your findings in Denver. I must go back to finish cleaning the house arghhhhhhh.
When you have a chance (if ever) I invite you to visit me at my blog, and would love you to see the work I do with Marshmallows, (I hope you like them) If you do go, let me know you were there, it will be a great honor to have at my ciberhouse. Kisses.

Next time, you have to go to D Bar and have the macaroni and cheese. I know! It’s not dessert (which are also fabulous), but the mac and cheese is the BEST I’ve ever had in my life! And Keegan’s really cool too! And next time, let me know you’re coming to town, and I’ll be your designated driver!

The Mulberry bakery in Denver is great! I hear the Makery in Lonetree is great and of course there are always some great places in Boulder. Definitely let us know if you are back in the area!
Thanks for letting us know about those places, its been a few years since I really explore 16th Street Mall and now I have new places to check out!

Oh amore! I am from Denver and currently live in Las Vegas. You’ve totally taken me back to my hometown (sniff!) It all looks so wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

Omg, I live in Denver! (Well my parents do—now I live in Savannah, GA most of the year). Next time you MUST go to the Shoppe. Amazing cupcakes with really creative flavors and a really cool atmosphere (they serve cereal and ice cream too!). Snooze is also amazing, it’s a retro-inspired breakfast/brunch place that has the most unique and delicious pancakes around. There’s so much amazing food in Denver that I don’t even know what else I can say, but I’m glad you got to experience some of it and I hope you’ll be back soon to get the full Denver experience.

There’s a gelato chain called Paciugo based out of the Dallas area. it’s so amazing. My favorite flavor is the Mediterranean sea salt caramel. It will change your life.

Im like you and can watch crepes being made all day. They make the best crepes in Okinawa. I always ordered mine filled with whipped creme, bananas, and chocolate syrup. Delicious!

Just an hour to the south, in Colorado Springs, you’ll find Sweet Daphne’s to be a wonderful little bakery. You’ll love the mountainous scenery and the sweets! Well worth the trip.
