NATICAKES – Making life a little sweeter through cupcakes, cakes, and compassion.
With Downtown Franklin Square buzzing again after the summer lull, I popped into Naticakes, one of the square’s newest tenants, to check out its highly-acclaimed cupcakes.
Greeted warmly by the staff, I was eager to sample some cupcake delish. Presented in a white display case
the little cakes looked more like Louboutins at Neiman Marcus than the staple food of children’s birthday parties. In lieu of a nutritional dinner I opted for a cupcake dinner – it’s a real diet people I have proof!
The shop itself is quite charming, white tables, chairs, and counters, and pale blue and yellow accents dotting the boutique. The story of how Naticakes all began and pictures of cupcakes fill the wall space, making the place an idyllic backdrop to a post-dinner (or movie) date stop. To actually grab one of its tables requires a combination of fortuitous timing and sharp elbows. If you do land a seat you could be entertained for hours by the people watching Downtown Franklin.
I couldn’t wait to dig in. Each cupcake was gorgeous; the highly-stylized confections complemented the equally beautiful setting in which they were served.
I thoroughly enjoy every moment when visiting Naticakes.
And the shop is adorable, it is worth the trip to charming Downtown Franklin!
