A month or so ago, Dr. Light and I headed up to Arvada to the Das Meyer Fine Pastry Chalet, a cute little house that had been converted into a bakery many years ago. Every Saturday they host an open house cake tasting where you can sample wedding cake flavors. It's completely on the house, including milk, coffee, tea, etc.

The whole place is super quaint, and even better, they had gargoyle statues set up all over. It really made the ambiance. :)

This little guy was next to our table.

After taking a quick walk around the bakery (you can see photos of their work on their website), we went over to the cake counter and chose four flavors: strawberries & champagne, berries in a cloud, orange blossom, and some chocolatey thing Dr. Light wanted to try. (For the record, I'm not a huge fan of chocolate cake.)

We were pretty excited.

The strawberries & champagne was DEFINITELY the best, so that sits at the top of our list for this particular bakery. We weren't so in love that we decided to use them right there and then, so we'll tour elsewhere, but if you are looking for a bakery that is well known, time-tested, and Lilacwire-approved, Das Meyer is a good start!
