I just noticed on her web site that Ms. Rather has closed her restaurant.

Rather Sweet Bakery & Cafe
Hi Friends!
I just wanted to let everyone know I am in no way associated with the new restaurant, Sugar and Smoke, opening in the old Rather Sweet space. I plan on doing some fun collaborations and projects in Fredericksburg, and I will keep everyone posted. Thanks so much for everyone's kind words and support. I have fantastic friends, for which I am truly grateful.
XOXO Rebecca

Looks like this took it's place:

I remember Darcie and I stopping by Rather Sweet when we were in Fredericksburg, but boy, I don't remember what I had. Darcie, do you?

I am going to be in Fredricksburg in March and I am very sad about this. I loved her stuff...especially the raspberry scones. Luckily they are very similar to CI's blueberry scones only with raspberries.

The new tenant looks promising! She trained under Rebbeca, try it out and let us know!

Amy, don't feel bad, I don't remember exactly what I had either. But I do remember that I wasn't overwhelmed. I also remember eating sausages and buying a nice serrated pastry knife that I still use quite a bit!. And I recall driving to winery after winery, trying to make do with just a sniff ;) And then there was the camp...good times.

I'm with you Darcie...it wasn't memorable. Frank may be blaming my lack of memory on the wine--which not being a driver (thank you again for taking on that chore)--I partook of plenty that day. But I think it was just not a memorable bakery. I remember the kitchen store though...you and I both had a blast in there! And, I remember your knife.

The camp...I still think about that brisket.
