Society Bakery Food Network Appearance October 7th, 9:30 pm Central Time!

Society Bakery received one of those calls we will never forget this past Spring: Producer called and said “we are thinking about visiting Society Bakery for (Ace of Cakes) Duff Goldman’s new Food Network show called Sugar High“.    And guess what?!?!?  Awesome Duff and his class act crew came to the bakery!!!  Episode 1 of Sugar High premiered on the Food Network August 8th.  Society Bakery (and two other Dallas/Fort Worth establishments) were on episode 2 in August.  The Dallas/Fort Worth episode will re-air Friday, October 7th 9:30 pm.  Read below for information taken off of Food Network’s website:

Prepare for a Sugar High: Duff’s Sweet New Series

    Duff Goldman, best known as the pastry mastermind behind the popular Food Network show, Ace of Cakes, is exploring a sugary curiosity. His new show, Sugar High, takes him on a cross-country trek to capture the sweet secrets and tasty techniques that keep the cookies from crumbling in the top bakeries around the nation. Premiering August 8, this six-episode summer feature will showcase the best sweet spots. From diners and curbside snow-cone machines to food carts and boutique bakeries, Duff will prove that decadent desserts are anything but ordinary.

    Follow Duff as he stops for chilled bread pudding on the Venice boardwalk in California, pull up a seat at a roadhouse in Dallas for s’mores and have a slice of apple strudel in Chicago that is reminiscent of something you’d get in Europe. He also returns to down-home style with traditional rice pudding at a dessert boutique in Philadelphia.

    Tune in: Monday, August 8 at 10:30 p.m. Eastern/ 9:30 p.m. Central

    What a review!!!  Thank you!

    Oh Hey Dallas Reviews Society Bakery

    Society Bakery

    11AUG

    Guess what I did?  I tried everything at Society Bakery. Yep, attention all you chubby chasers out there I got my hands on a treasure box full of treats from the glorious Society Bakery on Greenville Ave and in the spirit of honesty, IT WAS AWESOME!

    Being the committed blogger I am, I swore that I would take at least one bite (ok fine, maybe 2) of everything offered to me in order to give the best review I was capable of.  Don’t judge me, if someone handed you an enormous box of desserts you would take more than one bite of everything too-ESPECIALLY when the treats are as delectable as they are at Society Bakery.

    I almost passed out due to anxiety while driving home because I wanted to make sure these little fellas made it back without melting from the burn-your-flesh-off temperatures…or was it the overwhelming smell of sugar?  It doesn’t make a difference because we (yes, we) made it home safe and it was all I could do to not smash my entire face into the box like a 3-year-old.

    Although you would normally find me housing down a bag of Cheetos over a cupcake,  Society Bakery holds a very strong reputation and ever since I decided to review this lovely little spot I had been craving sugar like a diabetic.  Not being one that would ever generally pick chocolate over a salt lick, Society Bakery may have made me into a, dare I say, chocoholic!

    I would love to sit here and discuss each and every item and what I thought about them but honestly, for the first time since starting these reviews, I don’t have anything negative to say.  Of course I enjoyed some treats more over others but each was great in its own right.  So, lets go with just a *few* high-high-highlights of my rendezvous with Society Bakery!

    1) Chocolate Crostada.  I am a sucker for anything with a buttery, flaky crust and the crostada hits the mark.  As I mentioned before, I could usually care less about chocolate so it was shocking to me how hard I fell in love with this disk of perfection.  It has this light and airy texture that is wonderful for summer and although I have never had a crostada from anywhere else, something tells me it wouldn’t hold a candle to this gem.

    2) Apple Pie Cupcake. Generally I think cupcakes are mediocre at best and never something I would crave AND I really dont like apple pie.  Whenever thanksgiving comes around I eat the apple pie just so I can scrape out the apple gunk and eat the crust so I must say that I was not looking forward to this one.  Son of a… Not only has Society Bakery now turned me into a chocoholic but an apple pie lover as well.  How is this possible? I wish they had the ability to change my opinion on things perhaps a bit more critical such as wanting to go to the gym or caring about political matters. I digress. The cupcake is perfectly moist and is topped with a sugary frosting that is out of this world. THEN the frosting is topped with the aforementioned “apple gunk” which seems much more appetizing this time around.  The spiced apple pie filling balances out the sweet frosting to make a treat that is out of control delicious.

    3) Black and White Cupcake. This is what a cupcake should taste like, period.  An old-fashioned treat for the chocolate lover, the vanilla lover and everyone in between!  The black and white cupcake made myself and each of my taste testers roll our eyes into the back of our heads and say “Oh my goddddd” with a mouthful of frosting and cake that would make our mothers blush.  I wish every cupcake in the world tasted like this one.

    4) Brownie. Society Bakery’s website describes their brownies as “4×4 squares of heaven” and boy, were they right.  They are fudgy. And cakey. And smooth. And nutty. And chocolaty. And melt-in-your-mouth delicious.  I really don’t know what else to say besides the fact that you should hightail it to Greenville Ave immediately to pick one up.  Society Bakery not open at the time? It’s ok, I’m sure they won’t mind you taking a nap against the front door while you wait!

    5) Cookies. Somehow, someway, Society Bakery has mastered the art of making two cookies ONE.  I would wash dishes for years in order to find out how to make cookies this good.  They are literally layered just like if you baked the cookies halfway then stacked one on top of the other.  Even if they didn’t taste that great (which they DO) the sheer size of these guys is impressive.  Only one thing comes to mind while writing this and trying to describe my feelings towards these delicious mating treats and that is “hom nom nom nom nom” as so eloquently put by Cookie Monster himself. I was able to try the M&M flavor as well as the traditional chocolate chip but my curiosity has left me wondering if my personal fav, snicker-doodle, ever graces the shelves of Society Bakery ….

    6) Peppermint Whoopie Pie. Whoa. Just whoa. It may be 150 degrees outside but its Christmas in my mouth.  I can hear Santa’s sleigh and everything.  Eating this was like taking a mini vacation to Winter time and I greatly appreciated that.  It’s not too minty, not too sweet and following the common theme of Society Bakery it seems to have been meticulously test in order to deliver pure perfection.  My family decided that these puppies were going to have to make an appearance on our holiday table but there is no way in hell I’ll be able to wait that long to chow down on another one of these!

    How are you still reading this? You should already be at Society Bakery or at least well on your way.  You can’t go wrong with any of their delicious treats.  Even though I just highlighted my favorites I must give an honorable mention to the carrot cake cupcake, vanilla petit four, triple chocolate cupcake, lemon square and the frosting on the chocolate peanut butter cupcake. WOWZA. Run, don’t walk to this subtly sweet neighborhood favorite!

    Until next time,

    Peace, Love, Calories.

    What Society In Society Bakery Really Means (*Article Written by Lakewood Bubblelife)

    Lakewood Bakery Sweetens Up Society

    Walk into Society Bakery and it’s a little bit like stepping into a dessert-lover’s dream.

    Scrumptious looking cupcakes sit perfectly aligned inside of glass display cases, just beckoning you to indulge in their decadence.   The tantalizing smells of freshly baked red-velvet whoopie pies and delicately frosted sugar cookies waft through the air and tease your taste buds.  Yes, this charming bakery is definitely a piece of paradise right here in Dallas.

    And that’s really what Society Bakery owner Roshi Muns is trying to achieve; a paradise of sorts in her Lakewood neighborhood and throughout the DFW metroplex.

    She’s working to accomplish that goal by lending an active, helping hand to her business’s namesake: society. The bakery’s motto of “Be Good to Your Sweet Tooth and Be Good to Society” is backed up by donations to over 100 charities, schools and organizations in the last year alone.

    “Society Bakery believes in giving back to the community.  When local charities and schools ask us for help, we answer ‘yes’ almost 100 percent of the time,” Muns said.

    There have been so many “yeses” in the forms of luscious whoopie pies and mouth-watering cupcakes that she hasn’t even assigned a retail value to all of last year’s donations.

    “We donate every day. Thousands of dollars a month… One of our decorators said it felt like every third order she was doing was a donation,” she said.

    Muns’ latest cause is the Interfaith Housing Coalition Drive, taking place at the Greenville location. For every two items donated from the school supply list, Society Bakery will give you a free cupcake of your choosing. (Up to 3 cupcakes per donation).  The event will run through August 17th and the supplies will go to help East Dallas children.

    Helping those in need, like the children who will benefit from the school supply donations, should be a large focus of any local business, according to Muns.

    “It makes me sick to think of how much money is wasted by people and especially businesses,” she said. “Those same dollars-or even time wasted-could make a very big difference in the life of a child-who without help might fall through the cracks and become a detriment to society, when they could have gone a different direction with guidance or resources and become an asset to society. We hope we can inspire other businesses and people in the community to give back.”

    And she wants people and businesses to know that helping others can really be a piece of cake.

    “It is really very easy. You do not need to be wealthy to be philanthropic-and by all means if you are wealthy, then you should be philanthropic,” she said.

    10 Bakeries You Need to Try Across the U.S.

    June 2, 2011

    Dallas: If you’re craving a sweet treat and even sweeter service, Society Bakery is the place for you. Classics like cupcakes and cookies are available, but change it up and try one of their renowned bread puddings or red velvet whoopie pies!

    We had a BLAST Catering Sweets for Black Eyed Peas Party Friday Night and for Diddy Party Saturday Night!!!

    We would like to not so humbly report that Society Bakery was repeatedly told by celebs and visitors from New York and LA “This is the best stuff I have ever put in my mouth”  And “Open in Los Angeles!”  “Open in New York!”  “Do you ship?” 

    Texas is normally a “fly over state” for celebs and journalists so we do not get as much press or attention as other states so THANK YOU Jerry Jones for bringing national eyes and celebs to Dallas this past weekend even though you said the Cowboys mucked up their chances to play in the big game – we still love you for bringing the Superbowl here and giving us and tons of other local favorites an opp to show the nation that Texas DOES IT RIGHT and BIG!!!  Snow and ice be darned – people still left having a good time.  We saw it for ourselves.  And for the record – we thought the Black Eyed Peas performance on Sunday rocked and every journalist who says different can suck it with their meanness.  People like that are the same people that we are trying to counter with throwing good back into the world.

    Here are some pictures we took while catering the Black Eyed Peas Party and Diddy Party Super Bowl Weekend:

    Diddy Giving A Shout Out to Society Bakery (just kidding!)

    The Situation who said "I love cupcakes!" and Society Bakery Owner, Roshi
    Mark Sanchez, Quarterback for the New York Jets (Society Bakery Owner in the background 😉 ). Mark Sanchez is gracious and nice in person. We would happily personally deliver cupcakes and whoopie pies to him anytime.

    Taboo asked Society Bakery to send cupcakes and whoopie pies to The Black Eyed Peas dressing room!
