Cake Life Bake Shop wants to help make your summer a sweeter — and boozier — with a weekly dessert and beverage pairing series at their shop at 1306 Frankford Avenue.

Every Thursday from July 13th through August 17th, Cake Life will host a beverage expert, who will walk guests through pairing five different wines, cocktails, or spirits with different desserts. Riley Duffie of New York importer VOS Selections will kick off the series on July 13th with a tasting of five dessert wines and champagnes paired with five desserts specially prepared for the evening.

To give you an idea of the decadence you’re in for, take a look at the list of sweets they’ll pair with the drinks: a fig-blue cheese-prosciutto galette, a strawberry-rhubarb cream puff with vanilla bean custard, chocolate cupcakes with fresh lemon curd, honey teacakes with praline crunch and praline ganache, and a dark chocolate-dulce de leche truffle bar.

The pairing sessions go from 7:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. and cost $55 per person. Check out the full schedule below, and get your tickets here.
