Day 96: Sally Bell Cupcakes
During the 1950's in Richmond, VA there was a local and very famous bakery named Sarah Lee Bakery. This was the bakery of my childhood. Sometime in the 1980's (I think)there was a legal battle over the name and a company now known for it's frozen baked products was awarded the right to keep the name. The small brick building on W. Grace St where the cupcakes and Patsy rolls were baked changed it's name to Sally Bell. Their recipes and even their white boxes remain the same. I got a dozen of their cupcakes to bring to the beach with us. Aren't they delicious looking?
