Love and Buttercream opens second location in Birmingham

- The bakery Love & Buttercream has made quite a name for itself in Royal Oak in the past four years, and their second location just opened up in Birmingham. The new location is at 15 Mile and Woodward.

One of the bakery's specialties is custom cakes, but they also have several kinds of egg-free truffles inside the shop. Owner Brooke Wilson Vitale and manager Megan Friedrich joined us in the FOX 2 Cooking School to tell us more about the truffles, and to share a recipe with us.

You can watch in the video player above, and get their recipe for egg-free cookie dough truffles below.
