Strawberry shortcake is one of my favorite desserts. Growing up, it was the special treat I always ordered at our summer-time only Dairy Queen. Mozart’s Bakery and Piano Café makes a Mozart Torte that is a lovely sophisticated version of strawberry shortcake. At 4 inches tall, a slice of their Torte is a good size […]

I do love the cupcakes at Bakery Gingham. Moist cakes crowned with a mound of sugary icing. So when I saw they would be open for Easter today, I stopped in to get four for my fam and we ate them with our lunch. I also spotted a lonely s’more in the bakery case and […]

Treat to try: The Angry Baker’s Tiramisu

Tiramisu is a dessert I usually shy away from because I find the bottom half of it is normally way too heavy on coffee taste. I stopped in Angry Baker and saw it in their dessert case and thought, despite my misgivings, it looked really good. At $4.50 for a pretty generous piece, you could […]

I happened to be in the Short North this afternoon and stopped into Tigertree. To my surprise, they were hosting Batch Desserts upstairs. Batch was giving out their cheesecakes (and will be today for Gallery Hop, until they run out). Travis Sims and Roberto DeJesus started their artisan bakery about five months ago, perfecting their […]
