We put some of the best citrus desserts from around Utah in our taste off box this week, and they were all so good that it was almost impossible to choose a favorite! As always, we had you rate the desserts in three different categories: Taste, Texture, & Appearance–and we were able to narrow it down to the crowd favorite with your help. Let’s take a look at where the desserts came from and the desserts that were included!
Cravings Alisha’s Cupcakes: Grapefruit Cupcakes
Jacks Donuts AF: Lemon Crullers
Ruby Snap: Lemon Head Sugar Cookies with a Lemon Glaze
Shirley’s Bakery Cafe: Orange Rolls
Baking Hive: Lemon Bars
Cafe Rio: Lime Pies
Can you even believe how many delicious citrus desserts were included?! We loved that all of the citrus fruits had a chance to shine–those grapefruit cupcakes were just as good as they sounded with edible glitter on top, and a grapefruit curd in the middle. Or how about the lemon head sugar cookies–the texture on those are what sugar cookie dreams are made of.
As good as those were, there could only be one that could be crowned as the best citrus dessert. In the end, it was the classic orange roll from Shirley’s Bakery that was the shining star. Shirley’s is legendary in Provo for their baked goods, so it came as no surprise that everyone would love the orange rolls they whipped up for us. If you happen to be in Provo, be sure to stop in and grab a bag of orange rolls or maybe even one of their delicious cinnamon rolls. Congratulations to Shirley’s Bakery, and thank you to everyone that participated both as a vendor and to those that took the time to send in their votes!
