Sweet treat–Christina’s Dessertery

Christina’s Desserty

What the world needs now is love, SWEET love. Well, SWEETS to be sure :). Clemmons welcomed it’s newest sweet treat, Christina’s Dessertery, just a couple of weeks ago and we just had to visit them during the “soft” opening. Christina Johnson has made a name for herself for her gorgeous wedding cakes (and event cakes from simple to extravagant). Sister foodie says Christina’s fondant is the BEST she’s ever tasted and that’s saying something coming from a former wedding planner. Now, we all get to experience her delectable cakes, cupcakes and cookies.

Her new shop, located just off Highway 421 at the Clemmons/Lewisville exit, is quaint and chic. Maybe a little girlie? But it won’t scare off the boys, I promise…it would be a perfect dessert date place. Christina’s also has a great patio. Cakes change often. On the day we were there, there was a spice cake, Italian creme, Strawberry Shortcake as well as a small selection of cupcakes (even VEGAN) and cookies. It was a soft opening after all, so the cases weren’t filled to capacity.

Artistic much?

Our people got a round of cupcakes. We tried the birthday cupcake as well as the cafe mocha and cookies n’ cream. All were moist and delicious. I love the size of these cupcakes. Just a normal size, not a crazy jumbo thing that is way too much in one sitting (for me anyway).

And the little boy decided to get a cookie. This is a vegan chocolate chip. He does not know what that means but if I said “vegan cookie” to him, he may not eat it so we just let him believe it was a regular ol’ chocolate chip cookie. He didn’t notice the difference.

What I LOVE about Christina’s Dessertery is that it stays open a little later than most cake shops. Most nights until 9 or 10. And of course, cakes can be made to order given good advance notice. And they proudly serve Beans Boro Coffee (and you know how I feel about Kyle and his freshly roasted magic beans). So you can have your coffee, your cake and take a seat on a comfy chair or sofa (or patio) and eat it too.

Christina’s Desserty is just a few minutes from Winston-Salem in Clemmons at the Lewisville/Clemmons exit off Highway 421.
