Batch is closing!!

I read today that Batch will be closing soon. It is one of the bakeries still left on my list so I knew I had to get there ASAP. So I grabbed a friend and rushed over there to try a cupcake (it was close by). I purchased a Lemon Cake and my lovely friend, Lindsey, decided on the Dragon Devil's Food. There certainly were a lot of intriguing flavors to be had including Green Tea, Carrot Salted Caramel, and one with bacon bits sprinkled on top!

My lemon cupcake was very tasty. The cake itself was lemon and so was the icing. It also had lemon zest on top and a lemon filling in the middle. I love me some lemon but the lemon filling was a little much. I could have done without that. Lindsey's cupcake was very pretty with its edible glitter but I have yet to hear her review. I'll keep you posted.
Update: She loved it!

I'm sad to see this place go. It's very convenient from work, although that can be dangerous, and it smells wonderful when you step inside. Lindsey kept trying to figure out where the smell was coming from. It was everything! They had a large case of cupcakes but also showcased some delicious looking cookies and brownies as well.

The article didn't specify when Batch would be shutting its doors and there weren't any signs about it up in the store but the article did mention that they have plans for a bigger and better Batch in the future. Can't wait to see what new flavors they roll out. I think I want a Vanilla Bean next time.
