Fashion and food are both art forms—here’s how local bakeries are mixing the mediums

September marks a transition to a brand-new style season. And while we’re updating our wardrobes with trendy kicks, prints and accessories for fall, why not find some inspiration in our sweets? We’ve spotted several bakeries around town whipping up fashion-forward creations. Whether you’re looking for a couture cupcake or a classic cookie, there’s a spot in the Capital City willing to execute your vision in a custom design.

These aren’t the only spots in the Capital Region offering glamorous, glittery goodness. They’re just the icing on the cake chock full of talented local cake and cookie artists.
