Sugar Daze, by Cat Beurnier, opened its doors on June 23rd. As Americans in Paris and fans of all things charming and delicious…we went to investigate!
From the Sugar Daze press release : « Parisians and expats searching for delicious, authentic American-style cupcakes will have a new HQ starting this month. After more than 3 years of operation as a custom-order only cake and cupcake business – with waiting lists often exceeding 6 weeks! – Sugar Daze is set to open its first retail location at 20 rue Henri Monnier in the dynamic South Pigalle district (75009) on June 23. »
« The Sugar Daze Bake Shop will feature a daily rotating selection of the over 30 cupcake and cake flavors available on the current menu as well as limited-time only special flavors and other American baked goods like brownies, bars and pies. All Sugar Daze sweet treats are baked fresh daily from scratch on-site using the highest quality, natural ingredients such as free-range chicken eggs, Nielsen-Massey Bourbon Vanilla from Madagascar and fresh fruit. The cupcakes, prepared using traditional American recipes, come in a variety of original and delicious flavors such as « Lucky Star » (chocolate cupcake with whipped peanut butter frosting), « Kiss Kiss Bang Bang » (the classic Red Velvet) and « Cookie Monster » (an Oreo cookie-speculoos cream signature creation). »
I LOVE the rue Henri Monnier, and am glad that Cat has moved in there. It’s quite a charming street that has not yet been over run by tourists and although it has been somewhat hipsterized it remains a neighborhood where the local habitants hang out. It’s still authentic! And every commerce on that street is interesting, and authentic too.
