Cute Mascot Alert!: Blue Bird Bake Shop

Yesterday, Blue Bird Bake Shop made its debut in Orlando's ViMi corridor to open arms and open mouths. Whether you use a fork and knife, lick off the frosting and then eat the cake, or gobble both cake and frosting all at once, Blue Bird is, simply put, delightful.

The bakery has been well-known in Orlando for a few years, supplying Pom Pom's Teahouse and Sandwicheria with their crave-worthy cupcakes. Now, we don't have to order a sandwich to get cupcaked. The Red Velvet flavor is a personal favorite, topped with cream cheese frosting and walnuts. Try the tri-colored Neapolitan, layered with vanilla, strawberry and chocolate cake, topped with strawberry frosting.  Each cupcake is $2.75, and a dozen of the delightful things run $30.

The decor is absolutely adorable. I love the toile-esque brown and white wallpaper and the 20+ glass and ceramic bluebirds on the rustic 2x4 shelves behind the counter.  Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald serenade your sweet endeavor. And what about that mascot?  So cute, right?

Not to mention the compostable plasticware made from corn (who knew?) and the paper cups for hot drinks are 100% made from recycled material.  Love it. When you find yourself in a pinch for something sweet, Blue Bird is a lovely way to cap off the weekend...or any day, really.
