Ashley Macs in Bluff Park

This past weekend my mother and I packed as much in on a Saturday that we could pack in. I am going to post it in small batches. I already posted about Petals. After Petals it was onto another destination. We went to my old stomping grounds...where I grew up, Bluff Park. I needed to mail some packages and stopped into the local Post Office there. I got to talking to the clerk, the nicest lady. She was so helpful in so many ways. We got to talking about food (it was lunch time) and she said, "Whatever you do, you MUST go across the street in to Ashley's Macs for dessert. Their strawberry cake is the best!" She then went into the back and brought out her own slice of cake. I am not one that is a big fan of desserts, only on occasion for me...but upon one look at the cake-she sold me -and the cake.

So over to Ashley Macs mother and I went.

We each ordered a slice of strawberry cake. When we received it, it was cold-right out of the icebox. I love cake that way! One bite----true love.
I have had Edgar's strawberry cake and even touted it as the best on a post on my blog. I am going to go on the record and say that this cake from Ashley Mac's has it beat, by a mile.
Be still my beating heart. I am in love-with a dessert.
Ashley Mac's has an extensive menu.

They offer meals as well as desserts. Ashley Mac's "caters" to those who work and do not have time or feel like preparing a meal. Drop in and take a look inside the frozen casserole case to check out the meals and sides.

Ashley Mac's is an ideal choice for catered events, such as corporate functions, weddings, parties or showers. One look at the web site, and you will see the possibilities are endless.
Go, tell them that Leigh sent you for the strawberry cake. You too, will find love in that pink confection. Yes, you CAN have your cake and eat it too. You'll be thanking me. I will take it in cake, thank you very much!
Ashley Mac's, what more can I say? But Yum!

i am so jealous of you and your mom's adventures.
I am going to get my mom to come for the weekend, leave the kids home and invite us to go along one day.
Sounds so relaxing and fun.

That cake looks sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good! YUM-ERS! If I lived closer I would soooooooooooooooooooooo stop in and get a slice!

Oh man, I love Edgar's strawberry cake! So I am sure I would love Ashley Mac's even more if it beats it by a mile!

I've never heard of this place before, but then again, I've never been to Bluff Park. Might have to check it out one weekend.

My carpooling friend was talking about Pepperplace Market and I have never been. She said it's a must! Have you ever been there?

Leigh said...

Keetha- I have not seen that one, but I will look out for it. Love Chuck.

Giants Fan-Oh, me too. But my waist isn't as happy.

Hewy-to go along with it?

Anon-Well, come on down! We'll go eat cake! I would love to meet cha too! Oh, that coffee cup is a Mary Englebrite. I will bet you can find it on her web site or ebay. Any place that sells her products.

Charnita-Don't tease me now! I would LOOOOOVVVVEEE for you to come along, bring Momma too. There would be much to talk about. Lets do that, really now!

J-It is a must!

Trina- I thought Edgars had the best. And their's is good, but this is downright sinful to taste that good. You know it is filled with calories straight from Hell. Now I know how Adam felt with the apple...But it is oh, soooo good. THE BEST. Really.

Hi Leigh,
It's Nancy again - I checked about the coffee cup and can't find it on her website. Is it your cup or was it at Ashely Macs?


Leigh said...

Mind your Manners-what a cute name and even cuter blog you have! And yes-YUM!

Anon/Nancy-It is my cup. I looked on the bottom, it is from 2000 collection. I will keep my eye out for you for one. Again, try Ebay. Also places like Hallmark stores carry her collection....Good Luck. Its a good one. It holds alot. I am not a coffeee drinker but I love hot tea and hot chocholate. It fits in all of my marshmallows very well(smile).
