"What do you get when you cross two displaced southern girls, an old KitchenAid mixer and a heap of baking know-how? A whole lot of pound cake — really good pound cake!"
Starting, tomorrow, June 10, Two Belles Southern Pound Cakes will be joining the Ballston Farmers Market!
These are NOT factory cakes, folks. These are artisan pound cakes crafted by two “belles” who love to bake with the kind of natural ingredients their own grandmothers used: pure unsalted butter, high quality flour, cream or whole milk, eggs, sugar and a bit of fine extract for marvelous flavor.
With a bunch of different flavors and frosty colors, these pound cakes are simplicity at its best.
Good. Traditional. Southern. Pound Cakes. Which means no skimping on the butter.

Have you all heard of Whoopie Pies? Well, if you haven't please allow us to introduce you to a little lip-smacking slice of heaven.
Think of a Whoopie Pie as a little fluffy cupcake but in sandwich form. Brilliant, right? And nobody--I mean nobody, knows Whoopie Pies like B. Hall, Baker. In fact, this boutique baker specializes in Whoopie Pies in a variety of seasonal flavors, like French Lemon Cake, Vanilla Bean, Peach Mango, Dark Chocolate, and more.
Each packaged in its own separate wrapping, only the finest ingredients are used to make these Whoopie Pies!
Every Thursday, from 3:00-7:00, B. Hall, Baker plans to bring two different flavors of scrumptious Whoopieness to the Ballston Farmers Market in Welburn Square, along with petite sweet potato pies and fudgey brownies.
Oh, Ballston, we are soooooo lucky.

Find fresh and delicious blueberries, peas, cheese pastries, pork products, green bean, potatoes, sour cherries, raw honey, brownies, strawberry muffins, organic herb mixes, whoopie pies and SO much more. Yep. Sounds like Heaven to me.
Check out some pictures from yesterday's Market!
