Yesterday afternoon I needed a little pick-me-up, and I got it at Miette, at the Ferry Building. Miette offers a seasonal selection of cakes and cupcakes, tarts, cookies, and candies. They also make a wonderful pot de creme (a custard dessert).
I kept going back and forth between the gingerbread with cream cheese icing (foreground) and the “old fashioned” – chocolate cake with meringue (and a candy-covered peanut). What I left with will come as no surprise.
