Review and Giveaway: Dippidee

Oh man. After looking at all these pictures, I am so sad I don't have anymore of these treats. They were delicious.
Dippidee opened 4 years ago. The name "Dippidee" holds true to its definition - "place of sweet surprises." Dippidee started from some great ideas and secret family recipes (seriously secret, all the manager wanted for her wedding was the buttercream recipe - she did not get it).
The store is quaint, unique, and delicious. They use top quality, local ingredients - but somehow maintain resonable prices.

Enough of jibber-jabber - lets look at some drool-worthy treat pictures.

This is just a sampling of some of their treats:
1 - Top selling soft Sugar Cookies - They come in all sorts of seasonal shapes and decorations. I usually don't like soft sugar cookies, these are delicious.
2 - Loaded Dippidee Bars - similar to a 7-layer bar. Rich. Yum.
3 - Heavenly Pieces - these are similar to a shortbread cookie with cream cheese frosting on top. I couldn't resist. They gave me two and I ate one in the car on the way home. It was worth the mess.
4 - Homemade Oreos - I am a sucker for these. Mmm.
5 - Brownie - Most of the frosted Brownies I have tasted, the frosting overpowers. As with everything else - Dippidee did not disappoint. These was a perfect balance.

We can't forget the cupcakes! All Dippidee's regular cupcakes are filled with a delicious compliment.
1 - White Chocolate Cupcake with Cream Cheese Filling and Caramel - You had me at Chocolate, Cream Cheese, and Caramel - Hello! This was one of my top 2 items.
2 - Red Velvet - I had never tasted red velvet before. I will probably go back for this again. Delicious.
3 - Vanilla Cupcake with Vanilla Mousse - sounds boring? Nope. This vanilla takes the cake. (Sorry, I couldn't resist!)
3 - Little Devil Cupcakes - My favorite. This is the devil because I have been craving it again since I ate it. This one is cut so you could see the filling (and so I could eat it before waiting to take all the pictures).

The store was very fun to visit. Great ways to decorate a box if you decide to be nice and share (I ate mine before they could wrap it cute). I love that they have a rotating variety. There are always the top sellers, but then  there is something new for people like me who want one classic and one new taste.
Oh - did I mention she makes fabulous birthday and wedding cakes. I wish I knew about her when I got married. I love this cake. Maybe for my 10 year anniversary we will celebrate big!

Dippidee did provide me with these delicious treats so I could let you know about them. But, they did not forget you!

Dippidee is giving away a dozen cupcakes to one lucky winner! So you can have some treat just like these!
