I had the extreme pleasure of learning about All Things Sweet run by the Orlando Union Rescue Mission at a luncheon recently. The mission provides the opportunity for culinary training for its residents and we met some of the lovely ladies who had gone through the program. Everything tasted as good as it looks! The Red Velvet cupcakes were moist and delicious with a wonderful Cream Cheese Buttercream frosting. The Hi Hat mini cupcake featured the expected delicious chocolate coating and the Red Velvet Whoopie pies with incredible Brown Butter Buttercream had me wishing they were full-sized, instead of the adorable mini.

For those who prefer a cookie, there were several wonderful options. I loved the sweet buttercream roses on these shortbread cookies. A fun alternative to cupcakes, with the beautifully piped roses.

The royal iced, jumbo cookies could have graced a magazine cover. Packaged up, they are perfect gifts or favors for weddings, showers and parties.  For Valentines Day, All Things Sweet has specials that can be ordered by calling (407) 472-0633 or by emailing allthingssweet@ourm.org.​

The cost per dozen cupcakes is $26.82, the significance of that number is powerful. It costs the Orlando Rescue Mission $26.82 to feed and house one resident, per day. Think of the good you can do by purchasing some goodies through this bakery with a purpose.

I enjoy writing about and participating in the food, wine and culinary scene in Central FL in my off hours. I started Orlando Uncorked, a local non profit wine education group, to promote the approachability of wine and donated our event proceeds to local area charities. The popular wine tasting events grew into structured wine classes and finally, food and wine writing for Orlando Home & Leisure Magazine and The Seminole Chronicle. Thanks for stopping by and if you'd like to join in on my fun, follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Untappd, Drync & Vivino @WineChix . Cheers!
