The following is an article (Nov. 11, 2009) written by David Nicholson, a reporter for the Daily Press about our one of a kind fruitcakes:
Silverspoon Bakery in Portsmouth prepares homemade fruitcakes for the holiday season. Owner Claire Martinez has been making them since she opened the bakery in 2005.
"My grandmother used to make fruitcakes but I always thought they were dry," says Martinez. "So we use a combination of recipes for our version."
They're available through Dec. 31, and can be ordered by phone, fax or online. Cost is $10 for a one-pound fruitcake. $15 for a pound-and-a-half, and $30 for a three-pound. Martinez will ship them to you, though that costs extra. The bakery also does custom cakes and pumpkin, sweet potato and French apple pies to order.
Silverspoon Bakery, 4715 Portsmouth Blvd., Portsmouth. Open Tuesday-Saturday. 673-8431. 405-5541 (fax). www.silverspoonva.com.
