When it comes to sweets, I can not get enough. I didn’t realize how much I love sweets until I devoured (more like inhaled) a slice of chocolate cake that my bf saved me earlier this week. Literally, it was the first thing I did when I walked into the apt after work. So for today’s Favorite Friday, I want to share with you the places I daydream of and go to satisfy my random sweet tooth cravings.
During hot summer days, I prefer to eat popsicles, because ice cream melts too fast and popsicles are more refreshing (and healthier). I love Steel City Pops — they have such a great selection of fruity and creamy flavors. My favorites are blood orange, mango, coffee, passion fruit and guava. I also do not recommend their cookie pops as delicious as it sounds — the brownie gets too gritty, and the texture reminds me of coffee grind.
Fun fact: At the beginning of each month, Steel City Pops releases new flavors! Also, make sure to get yourself a punch card.
I never liked carrot cake until I tried EatZi’s carrot cake. The cream is not too sweet and the cake is moist. Their chocolate toffee cake and tiramisu cake are also delicious. You can buy the whole cake or just get single slices.
First time, I tried Nothing Bundt Cakes was at work — and now I am o b s e s s e d. I keep wanting to get some, but haven’t had the chance. These cake are like pound cakes, but better and perfectly moist (for lack of a better word). You can also buy single serving bundt cakes (called bundtinis) at their store!

Hands down, my favorite bubble tea place in Dallas. I have yet to try Magic Cup, so I will let you know if that’s better. Great smoothies and teas. Their tropical fruit smoothies are all great, and their taro smoothie is one of my favorites!
Haute Sweets Patisserie started off as a caterer. However, their macarons got so popular that people would buy the macarons straight from the kitchen. Seriously, these macarons are one of the best I’ve tasted — and I’ve tasted A L O T of macarons. I’ve been to Paris before, and these come really close! These macarons’ have a nice bite to them and the flavors are on point! Due to popular demand, Haute Sweets Patisserie now has a storefront (that I have yet to visit). The location is different from their old location so be sure to check out their website.
