Eats, Sweets, and Other Treats
By: Angelina B.
Designer Deserts has a variety of many different types of delicious cupcakes, cakes, and cookies. When you walk in, you’ll see colorful displays filling the shelves. Plus, you can get your own custom made cupcakes for just $2.50 each! They offer 110 flavors and stock 40 on a daily basis.The most popular cupcake, the Strawberry Champagne, has metallic balls sprinkled on top and a layer of pink frosting. When you bite into it, a rich, raspberry flavor comes out, revealing its true flavor. I also got the Chocolate Cupcake. This cupcake has creamy chocolate frosting that goes along well with the cake. The rainbow sprinkles add extra crunch and you can really taste the distinct chocolatey flavor. The next cupcake is the Strawberry Shortcake. This cupcake has pink chocolate shavings that cover the tasty layer of frosting. On the inside of the cupcake, you’ll find strawberry jelly that adds a unique taste to the cupcake.
Though Designer Desserts is mainly known for their cupcakes, they also provide wonderful cakes. One of their best is the Unicorn Cake. This cake is a rainbow delight! It is vanilla bean cake layered with cotton candy buttercream, sprinkled with edible glitter, topped with a sugar unicorn. They also provide cookies, brownies, sugar bombs, double doozies, and cannolis. That is why you should go to the Designer Desserts, the best cupcakes store in town!
Furin Japanese Restaurant
By Abigail L and Mia D
You love Asian food? Want to try something new? Try some Japanese food! Now if you want to, head over to Furin Japanese Restaurant! It’s high quality sushi, rice, noodles, and others are top notch! It is not too loud but also not too quiet. It’s a very pleasant place to spend your afternoon or evening. It may look nice but you don’t need to dress up! Its decorated very nicely. Also when you walk in there is a cute cat waving you hello! But as Japanese people say it, “Kon’nichiwa!”. Their waiters and waitresses are also polite, and very nice. When you walk in they’ll greet you with a happy smile!
It’s located at 21 Lincolnway, Valparaiso, IN 46383. It is rated a 4 and a half star rate. There is a lot of food for a decent price! Lots of people go there to eat Japanese food. Even if you have allergies to shellfish or seafood, they have rice to eat so you don't have to worry! So many people go there everyday to enjoy sushi, rice, crab, fish, and even shark, and other sea animals. The wait can be a little bit long, but is worth the wait. Also, many children like to go there as much as adults like to go there. There is also a sushi bar and grille there too. There is also this AMAZING drink there. Its called boba or bubble tea. Boba is a smoothie with tapioca beads on the bottom. They are like little sphere like jellies. They taste like gummy bears! So if you like smoothies and jellies and gummy bears, you can combine them!
We chose this restaurant for a reason. We hope that you have a chance to go there. Thank you for letting us tell you about this, wonderful place! We hope to review many other awesome places!
