PIECE OF CAKE

Pastry specialist Samantha Rush, the woman who turns out some of the best macarons and muffins in Dallas, created a sweet, all-occasion present. Her UN-CUPCAKE, a cupcake baked inside a glass jar, is a perfect party favor, teacher gift, or wedding memento. Eight signature flavors are available—wedding cake, chocolate ganache, lemon crunch, caramel coconut & cream cheese, s’mores, red velvet, strawberries & cream, and caramel macchiato. (Other flavors are available for the holidays.) Ordering for a special event? Have the top monogrammed. Just have a sweet tooth? Pop one in the microwave for 10 seconds and dig in.
