A Sign of Sweet, Sweet Victory to Come?
Bakeries around the towns offer delectable Super Bowl treats.
Super Bowl food fare may bring to mind savory snacks — wings, chips, cheese and dips — but local bakers are also serving up their share of the game-related treats this weekend.
From Splurge in Millburn to Eden Gourmet in South Orange and The Able Baker in Maplewood, Super Bowl-themed cakes, cupcakes and cookies are on display this Super Saturday and Sunday, but disappearing quickly.
Julie Pauly at The Able Baker says that the bakery on Maplewood Avenue will be selling Giants — and a few Patriots — football cookies while supplies last today (hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday). The cookies are $3 each. Pauly also made some beautiful Super Bowl cakes and custom-boxed Patriots/Giants cookies ($20/box), but "we took orders for them and they sold so well that we don't have extras for the bakery!"
Julie Winer of Splurge Bakery in Millburn recently obtained a licensing rights from major league sports teams to use official logos on their cookies and cakes. Call before ordering because supplies are going fast and this weekend will be busy at the bakery on Main Street because it's also Whoopie Pie weekend, where kids can build their own.
In South Orange, Eden Gourmet is also selling Super Bowl inspired theme cookies and cakes.
