Cold, crisp, bubbly sparkling wine perfect for hot Texas temperatures! Add some delicious pastries from Walton’s to pair and you’re in business. Dessert for breakfast, and why not? It’s a breakfast of champions!
If you’ve never been to Walton’s Fancy and Staple on Sixth St., think of it as an old Texas general store but taken up a notch; a blend of nostalgia for the good old days with a taste of the modern as a state-of-the-art bakery and delicatessen.
A popular spot to start your day with hot breakfast, Walton’s especially excels with its ‘pride-n-joy’ pastries. Best selling sweets such as their signature Honey-Bee Cake layered with caramel buttercream and topped with ganache are available daily…
Then there’s the custom wedding cakes, like this multi-layered Italian Cream Cake with luscious chocolate mousse made fresh with stunning results:
Care for an authentic Parisian Macaron? We thought so. And a rainbow of colors to choose from! Go ahead, they’re guilt-free. Slightly crunchy on the outside, and oh so creamy on the inside…
With Walton’s famous Golden Egg [below], we paired the Enza Rosé…fruit forward but dry. Typically you want your wine to be sweeter than your dessert, if not the wine will almost certainly taste bitter with the sugar you’re getting from your sweet treat.
The Golden Egg is a nutmeg infused yellow cake, dipped in melted butter and coated with cinnamon and sugar:
Another excellent dessert wine is Covey Run’s Ice Wine – very sweet!
Ice wines are harvested when the grapes are still frozen on the vine. The water stays frozen and thus the sugar is very concentrated. which makes for an incredibly concentrated sweet but beautiful wine. Very fragrant, and great with many types of dessert.
