Stir Crazy Baked Goods’ new Fort Worth shop sells whiskey cupcakes
The jewel box of a bakery features bright furniture, high ceilings, and an open kitchen so you can watch Robbie hard at work.
FORT WORTH I first tried Stir Crazy Baked Goods last year at our weekly Coldspring Farms CSA pickup. Robbie and Adam Werner set up their baked goods at a small table with their beautiful kids in tow. It just took one bite for our family to fall in love with everything we tried. We looked forward to trying all the new flavors of cupcakes Robbie would come up with every week.
Avoca Coffee soon started carrying their baked goods as well. At Avoca they featured several of Stir Crazy’s vegan cakes -- which, by the way, are just as good as their other cakes. I love complimenting my cortado with a slice of Stir Crazy’s cake whenever I go to Avoca. It’s a great spot if you just want to stop by for dessert, since they are open until 10 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Since launching their business, they’ve always spoken of having an actual bakery. They found a perfect little spot just off Main Street on Daggett in the ever growing Near Southside. I enjoyed following the progress of the bakery through their Facebook updates. They opened their bakery in June but many Arts Gogglers got a sneak peek in May. The jewel box of a bakery features bright furniture, high ceilings, and an open kitchen so you can watch Robbie hard at work.
I’ve ordered cakes from Stir Crazy whenever I have a special occasion to plan for. They did a wonderful cake for a baby shower, and most recently, my son requested one of their cakes for his birthday.
What sets Stir Crazy’s baked goods apart from others is that they highlight natural ingredients and flavors. It’s not unusual to find local produce incorporated into their cakes, cupcakes, and muffins. The other day, they even had cupcakes featuring the TX whiskey blend from nearby Firestone and Robertson distillery. I loved the TX whiskey blend that I sampled on the tour of the distillery, and the cupcake did the TX whiskey justice.
The bakery also features local artwork. Currently they are showcasing the work of Emily Donjuan, who "combines her fine art training in painting with the craft of sewing." The artwork changes on a monthly basis, so make sure and check it out while you’re there.
It’s wonderful to be able to stop by Stir Crazy Bakery after months and months of only being able to get Stir Crazy at the CSA pickup, Avoca, or through special orders. The bakery is a little gem in Fort Worth’s Near Southside and one that I’ll hope you’ll visit soon if you haven’t already. You are in for a treat, I promise! Make sure and check their Facebook page for updates and for pictures of all their tempting treats.
