I LOVE today’s giveaway because it is for a local bakeshop that couldn’t be sweeter. I walked into Sweets Bakeshop about a month ago to see a huge crystal chandelier hanging above a table with gorgeous displays of cupcakes and macarons. The three mini cupcakes I purchased that day were as delicious as they were pretty. And the people behind the counter were nice, nice, nice!

Sweets Bakeshop is located on 2042 Marshall Ave in St. Paul and offers daily cupcakes, French macarons, brownies, and blondies. They use natural, local ingredients whenever possible (such as butter from Hope Creamery located in Hope, Minnesota and organic, free-range eggs from Larry Schultz Organic Farm in Owatonna, Minnesota.)
