On The Eve Of Halloween, Treats

IMGP1952_edited.jpgMmmm-mmmm, just one red-velvet cupcake with vanilla-bean icing was left a short time ago when I stopped by Babycakes Bakery in east Sacramento. The place won't open until Tuesday, but today's promotional preview gave neighbors an inkling of what's to come.

Veteran Sacramento chef and cooking instructor Teresa Urkovsky is opening Babycakes with her husband Gerald Collins and their business partner Kristine Bertram. While the display cases are waiting to be filled, the menu board is ready for customers, listing cupcakes such as pumpkin pecan, coconut lime, banana split, lemon meringue and caramel apple.

The threesome plans to offer four or five types a day, about 400 total if sales are as strong as anticipated. They'll sell for between $2 and $2.50 each.

Babycakes also will be selling a smoked chicken salad and roast beef, turkey and ham sandwiches. At 3675 J St., it's to be open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily except Monday.
