Dining Spotlight AND a Giveaway!!! Ashley Mac's Bakery

By Leigh Bratina

I do not have what you would call a sweet tooth. But I have a "thing" with Ashley Mac's strawberry cake.

Actually, I like to think of it more as a relationship.

It's love.

I was turned onto the sugary confection over a year ago by a woman at the Bluff Park Post Office. Funny how you remember the first meeting of your true love.

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. As mentioned before, 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 I went.


I ordered a slice of strawberry cake. When I received it, it was cold-right out of the icebox. I love cake that way! One bite----true love.

Be still my beating heart. I am in love-with a dessert.

If you have not been to Ashley Mac's, you are really missing out. Besides the worlds-uh-universe's best cake, they also offers boxed lunches and to-go dinners that you can pick up at Ashley Mac's locations. Drop in and take a look inside the frozen casserole case and check out the meals and side dishes for a quick supper.

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.
If you do not live close enough to drive to Ashley Macs for a sweet treat, well, then, I feel for you. But there is hope in the form of chocolate. Ashley Mac's is now shipping their homemade brownies, delivered right to your door-anywhere in the USA.

And right now, for one lucky Alabama Blogger reader, Ashley Macs has agreed to ship a batch of her homemade brownies to you for free! All you have to do is comment on this post by Monday, July 6th. One winner will be chosen randomly and announced here on July 7th.

Yes, you can have your cake and eat it too. You'll be thanking me.

I will take the appreciation in the form of cake, thank you very much!

Ashley Mac's, what more can I say? But Yum!
