The Starbucks Siren, in all her topless mermaid glory is getting center stage on the cup, which is filled with your favorite coffee (or not) beverage. Starbucks has dropped the black word banding around the siren, leaving the Starbucks logo as a completely green image of the mermaid on the cup. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz explains the new Starbucks logo and the brand’s vision for the future on the Starbucks’ site today.
And along with all those faovrite beverages, you must have a baked good or two. Here are some of our favorite Starbucks copycat recipes from flavored syrups to “fresh from the bakery case” scones to bring the coffee shop experience to your own home.
**Make your own flavored syrup to spruce up that homemade latte or cappuccino. From cinnamon to orange-infused, these syrups will make you feel like a barista in no time.
**These maple oat nut scones have a sort of cult following. With walnuts baked in and a maple glaze on top, they are the perfect bakery item to accompany a cup of java in the middle of winter.
**The petite vanilla bean scones at Starbucks are one of my kids’ favorites. Tiny and glazed, they’re perfect for small hands. Try these in your very own kitchen.
**Brooke’s blueberry cream scones look divine, and she claims they’re better than the ones behind the glass at Starbucks. Try them out and judge for yourself.
