As promised, here is part two of my recent order with Carol: the cuttables! If you have been reading for a while, you probably know that fruity bakery is not my normal choice of scent and that zucchini bread is really not my normal choice of scent... but here I am, about to showcase a lot of fruity bakery... and zucchini. I think I had the proverbial wild hair stuck somewhere. My mad sudden craving for wildberry zucchini bread made me question my sanity, and whether I was expecting (no, I am not).
Cinnamon Bun scented in Cinnamon Roll cost $3.75 for 4.3 ounces. Of course cinnamon is the star here and it is a lovely one, sweet and slightly frosted with that signature Cinna-Bon glaze. The bakery is not heavy on cold but there is a denseness and depth that a sweet roll contributes to the spice.
Donut ($3.25 for 3.2 ounces) and Graham Cracker ($2 for 2.2 ounces) both scented in Jellied Filled Graham Pie. Jellied Filled Graham Pie is amazing. The red fruits jelly and sweet deep pie have a cherry edge that almost reminds me of cherry pipe tobacco. May sounds strange but it smells so incredible. Jammy cherry filled vanilla baked goodness. You know... it almost reminds me of the Hansel & Gretel blend too.
Graham Cracker in Blackberry Jam Graham Pie (I like saying jam graham) has tones of Blackberry Jam Butter Cookie with extra vanilla- vanilla wafers. Delish! I forgot how much I missed the old BJBC gal.
Graham Cracker and Donut scented in Fresh Picked Strawberry Graham Pie. Oh yes. Now the mysterious graham pie blended with Fresh Picked Amazingness-In-A-Berry comes across as Strawberry Shortcake. And I truly want to eat it. Look at how real the donut looks! Does wax have calories?
The rest goes down in a blaze of chunky muffin glory. These run $3.75 for anywhere from 3.1 to 3.6 ounces per muffin.
Serendipity Marshmallow Birthday Cheesecake- I have noticed these are hard to gauge on cold throw, because the overpour pretty much covers up the lovely individually scented chunks in the middle. Once I cut into them I can really smell all the components. What initially smelled a like a light vanilla emerged into a vanilla custard and cake serendipity delight. No strange cheesy tones to the cheesecake from what I could gather, but then again it was paired with serendipity marshmallow birthday cake. It threw medium-strong in the kitchen and living room area, making for a pleasant Friday night scent.
Fresh Picked Strawberry Serendipity Bear Claw- Since this is uncut I mainly get cinnamon spiced pastry and it is gooooood. Almost like Celtic Moonspice married to sugared donuts. I am sure the added FPS is only going to make this skyrocket to ecstasy.
Fresh Picked Strawberry Wildberry Mousse Bear Claw- Look at those chunky colors! I want to eat this muffin for breakfast with my coffee and cream. The wildberry mousse lends a darker berry shade to the FPS while the spiced bakery makes it homey. Like cinnamon toast with jam. But better.
Jelly Donut Marshmallow Birthday Cheesecake- I can pick up more of the cheesecake in this blend and it is pretty rich. A heavy cream vibe lies within it. This almost smells like a jellied bread pudding with cream. I like it!
Fresh Picked Strawberry Jelly Donuts Birthday Cheesecake- On cold I mainly get marshmallow donuts and they smell great together. I know when I cut it up the FPS will pour out like the red gold that it is. I would normally cut these all up for you guys but please forgive me for wanting to keep a few intact. Some I want to save and some will be for a giveaway and gifting.
Apple Caramel Bear Claw- An autumnal beauty for sure! Spice, apples and caramel make my mouth water. Then wrap it up in a puff pastry and I am singing its praises. Definitely one I am tucking away like a squirrel for a fall treat.
The zucchinis. Dun.... dun.... dunnnnnnnnnn.
Wildberry Mousse Jelly Donut Zucchini- This is a take-no-prisoners, whop-my-fanny, salty (yes in both meanings) she-devil that almost reminds me of popcorn puppy feet and Fritos. Zucchini like only zucchini bread can be. The berries and jelly donut will be a welcome pairing that will sweeten up the wild zucchini bread beast. I am actually excited to melt it!
Caramel Apple Zucchini- The sweet caramelized apples really make a great pairing with the zucchini bread. Looking forward to this one too.
Caramel Pralines Zucchini- This one I fear. I only get straight zucchini bread but keep in mind it hasn't been cut up. I know caramel pralines lie within. The question is... can they tame her zuckey self? I may never know because this one is ear marked for a gift.
So thar she blows... my crazy Candles From The Keeping order from February. I am hoping to get bags in Chocolate Lavender, Citrus Pound Cake and Wildberry Coconut Fluff one day. How do you feel about fruity bakery? Zucchini? Are you jonesing for any particular scents lately?
