FYI If you love peanut butter, their peanut nutter cookies are terrific! I had to buy and eat this one just so you could see it them.. The cookie is made up of 2 little pieces of short bread with oats and peanuts. The filling is peanut butter, crunchy peanuts and .. a secret ingredient or 2 I'm sure. Just a peanut butter lovers dream. We don't know if this is the same recipe peanut nutter recipe but I think it is close. Give it a try.
There is a parking lot right behind Icing On The Cake, otherwise you can try to get street parking on Main St. Just a couple of blocks away, between Santa Cruz Ave and University is the town parking lot. If you buy something from the bakery you can probably use a few extra steps (haha).
The bakery first opened in 1985 in a little shop that is behind what is now Dolce Spazio Gelato and along side Rootstock Wine Bar. I'm not sure how the even had space to bake in there but the goods were awesome. In 2001 the bakery moved their current location on Main Street.
