The anecdote helps define the playful attitude at this splendid desserts shop run by Catherine and her sister, Cheryl, in the free-spirited Whiteaker Community a few blocks west of downtown Eugene, Oregon. We also make Love Truffles, mixing in herbs and spices that are known aphrodisiacs, such as sarsaparilla, ginger, cinnamon, cayenne, kava-kava, and something called horny goat weed.
We make all kinds of cakes, pies, cheesecakes, tarts, and pastries beyond the two that raise eyebrows. Sweet Life is a popular neighborhood hangout.
