Until recently Liz Weinclaw's claim to fame was that she'd been Michael Symon's pastry chef at Lola. Now she has something new to boast about. She and Caitlin Shea have partnered up to launch Meringue Bake Shop in October, joining the growing Cleveland community of fine and fancy artisan bakers. The pair specialize in beautiful custom cakes (take note all you spring and summer brides), macarons (French sandwich cookies, featured in the February issue of Cleveland Magazine), petit fours, and all sorts of bite-sized sweets for dessert buffets.
For now, this is a virtual store. Securing a bricks and mortar location is still a dream, so everything must be ordered in advance by phone, email, or through Facebook. But you can sample some of their treats with a cup of coffee at Phoenix and Rising Star.
