Miette

IMG_8411

Last fall during the book tour, I visited a bunch of cupcake bakeries and sweet shops in just about every city I passed through. Miette was one of my favorites in San Francisco. If you get a chance, make sure to give them a visit.

They have two locations. One in the Ferry Building and one on Octavia Street. They also have one in Oakland and another opening later this year in Larkspur, California.

IMG_8390

In San Francisco, the one on Octavia Street is bigger than the Ferry building location, but both are just as cute as can be.

IMG_8401

I loved the colors and the display of sweets. So did Julie.

IMG_8320

Everywhere you turn are the cutest treats with adorable packaging.

IMG_8328

Lovely macarons.

IMG_8327

Panna Cotta and Pots de Creme.

IMG_8410

Little cakes.

IMG_8326

Lots of little cakes. Miette is known for their sweets of smaller scale.

These are all 6 inch cakes which makes them even more charming.

IMG_8395

And check out their cupcakes. Beautiful!

IMG_84111

Miette recently released a cookbook filled with recipes of their signature sweets.

Pretty awesome.

IMG_83901

And pretty cute. I love the scalloped pages.

IMG_8395

It ties in beautifully with the shop accents.

IMG_84011

See. Same cupcakes.

But that’s not all.

IMG_8402

Marshmallows. I must make some soon.

IMG_8393

Crackers and cookies.

IMG_8398

Tarts and tartlettes. I just want to sink my teeth right in. Forget the fork.

IMG_8404

Caramels.

And cakes.

I made the Tomboy Cake. So good. It’s made with chocolate and cocoa.

And I must say, it feels good to feel like baking again.

Here’s the Tomboy Cake Recipe straight from the book, courtesy of my and Miette’s publisher, Chronicle Books.

But that’s not all.

IMG_8380

This book is just so cute that I thought I’d give you guys a chance to win a copy.

And because most people don’t already own 6 X 3 inch pans, I’m giving away two straight and two contour pans so you can make all the little Miette cakes you want. I’m also including some tartlet pans in case you don’t have any of those handy either.

To enter for a chance to win, just leave a comment on this post and answer the following question.

  • What was the last cookbook you acquired or what is the next cookbook you can’t wait to get your hands on?
  • Deadline to enter is Tuesday, July 12 at 7:00 pm ET. Sorry, time’s up. Winner announced below.
  • One winner will be chosen at random and announced sometime Tuesday evening.

Good Luck!

Giveaway sponsored by me.

Okay, time to announce the winner of this cute little cookbook and petite pans.

The winner is comment #2636

miette-winnerCongratulations Pat! And guess what. I’m going to throw in a copy of Cake Pops for you, too.

Hope you enjoy them both. – Bakerella

So glad you are feeling better and are back to baking! Wish I had seen this post yesterday since we drove through San Francisco on the way home. My husband is happy I didn’t know about the shop though. The last cookbook I received was The Pie and Pastry Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum. I loved her Heavenly Cakes book, so my husband bought me the pie book! Hope your mom is recovering quickly too!

The last cookbook I got was from my mother-in-law. She wrote down all of her favorite Italian, and non-Italian, recipes (She was born and raised in Italy). She knows I love to bake, as does she, so she put a lot of her cookie and cake recipes in there. =)

The last cookbook I added to my collection was a gift – “Cake Pops” by you! Sadly, that was long ago, as money is tight so I can’t be buying up all of the cookbooks I want. One I’ve wanted for a while is “The Best Recipe” by Cook’s Illustrated. :)

The last cookbook I got was a surprise gift from my boyfriend for Christmas. He had seen me eye “Very Merry Cookie Party” and bought it for me on the sly.

I really love baking, and I don’t currently own very many recipe books (I think all inclusive, I have 7 now, all of which are either baking or vegetarian…we eat a little meat but I try to keep it to a minimum, having new recipes to try makes that easier for me!)

Also, not to run on, but the scalloped pages of that book really are too cute! That had to be expensive to produce, but it really does give it a special touch.
