Pastry Chef Eric Wolitikzy may be a newcomer to the South, but take one look at his dreamy desserts, and you’d think he was born-and-bred in Atlanta. As the newest addition to Decatur’s The Bakery at Cakes & Ale, Wolitikzy offers picturesque cakes covered in smooth-as-silk buttercream, alongside his childhood-inspired bakeshop sweets: whoopie pies, nutter butters, and pineapple upside down cake. Take a seat along the charming 1950s-style counter for a cup of coffee and a slice of his death by chocolate Mississippi Mud Pie, or pick up a few goodies to go. Or better yet, finish off a meal at next door’s Cakes & Ale with a grown-up version of Wolitikzy’s treats. The formerly New York-based baker is stretching his wings into plated desserts with a full sweets menu worthy of dipping into.
