Exclusive first look: Lucky's Bakehouse and Creamery opens in Boulder
In the meantime, there's no shortage of sweets -- and all of Bush's creations are scratch-made, including the all-organic ice creams and sorbets. "I wanted to do things that are pretty to look at, and, more important, good to eat, but we don't want to take ourselves too seriously -- we don't want to be snotty -- so we're doing things that people are familiar with and just elevating them and taking them up a notch," she says, while shaking her head in disbelief at the Friday afternoon romp that keeps swinging through the doors.
"I had no idea we were going to open up to this kind of crowd. We've had a constant stream of people that hasn't stopped," says Bush. "We're literally blown away by the response."
When I interviewed Bush on Friday, I also had the opportunity to get up close and personal with her beautiful pastries, the photos of which are on the following pages.
