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

I’m not sure of the last cookbook I got. I think it may have been PW’s. I’d been planning to get the Cake Pops book, but I don’t get to cook & bake as much right now since I am in nursing school. I have always loved “reading” cookbooks though!

The last cookbook I received is called “500 Cupcakes”. Love. My next will be your Cake Pop book as I was waiting until you were in Northern California to buy it and have you sign it but I was either gone or sick those days! And did you know that Blake Lively talked about you on Jay Leno? She mentioned how she made all sorts of treats during filming of the Green Lantern and when she said cake pops, she explained to Leno that there’s an amazing person, Bakerella, who makes them. Whoo!

The last cookbook I bought was from a school fundraiser in my teeny, tiny hometown. All the little old cafeteria ladies put in their best recipes, which they made from scratch in the cafeteria when I was little. It sure brings back lots of delicious memories!!

Kelly P said...

I think I may be the last person in the world to not have the Pioneer Woman’s cookbook. It will definitely be my next purchase. However, my daughter is the baker in the family, so if I win this, it will be for her. (And me to enjoy the treats.)

July 10, 2011 10:37 PM

Kate said...

Pioneer Woman’s was the last cookbook I purchased — I decided that I have too many cookbooks on my bookshelf to keep buying more, and I am dedicated to cooking more from my OLDER cookbooks, since I mostly rely on blogs for new inspiration these days. THANKS for the giveaway!!!

The last cook book I bought was from a co-worker. It was put out by his church and is loaded with great hand-me-down recipes. Lots of yummy stuff. And the next one I want, honestly is yours! I haven’t gotten it because I thought I’d get it for Mother’s day…not so much. So it’s next on my list!

I would love to get my hands on THIS book!! The treats in here look wonderful and if I don’t win it, I am going to purchase this ASAP! Right up my alley (I’m never going to lose weight now!!!) LOL!

The most recent addition to my growing cookbook collection was a gift from my Granny- the Bucklin, Kansas Centennial Cookbook. My next one will be either Cake Pops (because a lot of birthdays are on the horizon) or something for Crock Pots (because I just accepted an evening position but still want my family to have a hot dinner!)
