Boulder Baked on Broadway is more than a latenight destination after an outing on Pearl Street.
This bakery offers homemade desserts including cakes, cupcakes, pie and cookies made from family recipes. Known for its late-night deliveries, the bakery is open from 4 p.m. until midnight Sunday through Wednesday and until 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday if you’re craving something sweet long after your family meal is done.
Offering vegan and gluten-free options, Boulder Baked fits most dietary needs deliciously. Their baked specialties include the fruit pizza, a monster sugar cookie with icing and fresh fruit, pumpkin cheesecake, vegan piña colada cake and dozens of cookies baked-to-order. The bakery even delivers a quart of milk when you order confectionary items to your home or office.
Spruce Confections on West Pearl Street has been a neighborhood novelty for more than 17 years. A European-inspired café, owner David Cohen offers croissants, bread, scones and more than 60 different pastries at his downtown location and its sister café on north Broadway. Entirely wind-powered, Spruce Confections recycles or composts 80 percent of its waste and buys its ingredients from organic, local sources.
Kim and Jake’s Cakes in the Table Mesa Shopping Center has created a special holiday menu specifically for the approaching winter holidays. The bakery offers a café brulot cake, a luscious combination of coffee, chocolate, orange zest, brandy, cinnamon, cloves and whipping cream, as well as pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing and toasted pecans. Two other holiday specialties include a peppermint patty cake and a package cake, decorated like holiday gift package.
Their eggnog pie with brandy, rum and spice egg custard would certainly be worth tasting for eggnog-lovers, and their cranberry orange white chocolate pie sounds like a winning combination, too. Holiday cakes vary in price, but holiday pies are $19 each.
Tee & Cakes in downtown Boulder has been locally owned and operated since 2007 and offers a vast variety of cupcakes, cakes, coffee and pastries. All baking and decorating is done in their shop and the bakery will deliver to the Boulder area for a small additional fee. Perhaps not holiday-appropriate, but interesting nonetheless, Tee & Cakes offers cupcake flavors like chocolate bacon, strawberry milkshake, Coca-Cola and salted caramel.
Custom cakes with any flavor, size and inscription are made to order and can have tie-dye designs, 3-D shapes, tiered levels or anything else you might need for your holiday festivities. At Tee & Cakes, cake inscription and designs have zero limitations.
