A youngster gazes through his reflection at cupcakes and other pastries behind the glass case
I didn’t know there was a Boonsboro, Md., until Granddaughter had a soccer game there. (I think her team came very close to winning.) All that running around made several of us hungry, so we headed into town to see what was available, preferably not something with a name we’d recognize.

We like to experiment with local places, and we found one, right there on North Main Street – the Icing Bakery and Café. I had a bowl of chicken rice soup, a couple of us had hot sandwiches, and the little guy in the picture had some of his dad’s. Lunch topped off with cheesecake cupcakes.

Icing Bakery and Café is a friendly, family-run establishment, owned and operated by Lacy and Tom Barnhart. The excellent repast  is all homemade in the back – breads, cakes, cookies, cheesecake cupcakes. What more can one ask. If you’re traveling south out of Hagerstown on US 40A , it’s on the way.

The place is not difficult to spot. in the middle of town (it’s not a large town, so middle is easy to spot, watch on the left for the pink-trimmed blue café set into the yellow building.
