Guest Post: A Summer Project

I came across this thread by Ellicott City Pix on Twitter the other day. It just leapt off the page to me as a possible guest post for Village Green/Town² . I am sharing it here with @ECpix’s permission. Enjoy! - - jam

THREAD: “Summer Project”

My summer research project was to try out as many Howard County bakeries that I possibly could, as frequently as possible.

As research, it was, of course, exempt from all diet restrictions.

Now, the report:

I find myself at Renata’s Tasty Bites @RenataAlanovic quite often, and lose all self-control when I am standing in front of the illuminated cabinets full of handmade, fresh European pastries. Love the chocolate cupcake! Snowden River Pkwy in Columbia.

I’m embarrassed to admit that I had trouble finding Cake Wala @cakewalaus, but it’s right there at the corner of St. John’s Lane/Rt. 40, across from the new Sprouts in Ellicott City!

Look at these beautiful cakes, and yum! Pistachio, Mango, Tira Misu, Oreo! Oh my.


I finally found @touchetouchet Touché Touchet, the location in Elkridge is close to me! They have many different pastries (and other food) but I’m always distracted by the cupcakes anywhere I go, so... this coconut cupcake did not survive long.  #yum

YES, I was in cupcake heaven when I visited @KupcakesCo right off Montgomery Road in Ellicott City.  I felt at home the moment I saw the sign on the door “Eat Cake for Breakfast.” Or, any, or every, meal.  Some tasty artwork here!


I love the individually packed tasty items at the Shilla Bakery @ShillaBakery 
 n on Rt. 40 in Ellicott City. I tried to go for the high protein items here.  And, I tried my first bubble tea, taro flavor.  Purple.  It’s good.

Right across the street on Rt. 40 in Ellicott City is ... you got it, Tous Les Jours! My acquisition did not last long enough for a photo.


One Dish Cuisine @onedishcuisine in Ellicott City is great for those who monitor food restrictions.  There was a lot on the menu, but this caught my eye and my choice was made. I even tried to make it into a painting with my app.

Sunday excursion to Glenelg in western #HoCoMD to find   Dandelion Bistro and Bakery!  Yeah, it was a pretty long ride back since we drove slowly to take in the sights.  So, all that was left was... the box...


Well, that concludes my summer project report.

It’s awesome that we have so many talented bakers in #HoCoMD.


What did you do on your summer vacation? If it was something g #hocolocal, let me know here:

Much love to all hcpss teachers and staff returning today. We are so grateful for the work you do!
