Right after Sister and I signed up for the Haunted Hustle race in Middleton, WI, we started researching places we would be able to eat that catered to our gluten free lifestyle. We immediately stumbled upon Bloom Bakeshop and were incredibly excited to go there. I even considered a quick almost 2 hour drive over there because I couldn’t wait! 😉
I, of course, wanted to go there multiple times over our day being there, but we settled on just once and loading up on all of their gluten free options! We decided to go there after the race as a recovery treat so it tasted all the more delicious.
Bloom Bakeshop is in downtown Middleton, such a cute area and the shop is adorable. The downtown trees looked especially gorgeous with their fall foliage.
We walked in and only two of their bakery items were marked as gluten free (+ vegan), but there were five in total that day. We obviously had to get one of each because we couldn’t decide and they all looked extremely delicious. The mummy cupcake was the most delicious chocolate cake I’ve had (with chunks of real chocolate – yum!) topped with vanilla buttercream. The other two cupcakes were seasonal flavors, sweet potato with chai spiced buttercream and pumpkin with eggnog – so good! The bottom row is a blondie-type bar with chocolate chips and a chocolate chip cookie sandwich.
I loved how they decorated these!
And I must admit that this one was my favorite. The cookie was moist and the buttercream was so creamy sandwiched in between.
We ate this on our scenic drive home and are already trying to find an excuse to go to Middleton again!
