You may have noticed I have been posting more reviews lately. The reason being, I am now a Dictator for a website called SugarBomber.
"SugarBomber is the go-to guide and lookbook for admirers of all things sugary. Whether it’s a foie gras cupcake or red wine truffle, fellow sweet teeth unite for a common goal: scour local neighborhood restaurants and bakeries across the country to find and photograph great cavity-inducing delights."
If that did not sell you then you should just go over to the site and check out all the great photos.
As you can imagine, I jumped at the opportunity to review sweets around town. So when I was on vacation last week I had a few extra desserts just so I could review them. One of the places we went was Signe's Heaven Bound Bakery and Cafe on Hilton Head Island, SC. If you ask me, Signe's is really an island tradition. My family has been visiting them since I was a little girl for brunch of to get a few cookies. This past trip I got the whole wheat waffles which were crispy on the out side and light on the inside. They were delicious and I definitely cleaned the plate! My friends and I also shares a Pecan Sandie and an Almond Sandie on this trip. These cookies were heavenly. They were sweet, nutty, light, and big enough to share. The almond sandie had more of a shortbread texture and the pecan sandie had all the flavors of Pecan Pie. If you are not a fan of nuts, they bake 11 types of cookies daily and each one is as delicious as the next. I am sure I have tried them all over the years. Don't fret if you are not going to be in Hilton Head any time soon. Signe's ships there baked goods!
