Calico Cupboard, $6.49
I learned about Calico Cupboard from a rabid fan of their apple cake who was loudly talking smack in a rival bakery. Visiting lovely little La Conner on a day trip, I reckoned I'd judge that apple cake for myself--but it turns out only to be available "in season". So instead I had (part of) a cream puff the size of a kickball but much more toothsome: flaky pastry, glassy chocolate, rich custard, and airy whipped cream.
And I added "apple cake" to my fall calendar.
