It’s ice cream season, are you ready? I recently headed over to Honeycomb Creamery to taste it for myself. I had really been dying to try the rosé gummy bears, but they are seasonal, so I had lime instead. Flavors available that day included: burnt vanilla bean, cinnamon dulce de leche, honey lavender, brown butter […]

Remember when you used to go to birthday parties and you’d get a Hoodsie cup for dessert? I always ate the vanilla side first and then reluctantly ate the chocolate. And those wooden ‘spoons’? Yeah. Well, good news, there’s some new players in town that will make you say Hoodsie who? Ok, so maybe still […]

Let’s be honest, 1 year olds don’t need party favors, but it is nice to have guests leave a party with a little something. La Doce is Boston’s first online boutique to offer Brazilian birgadeiros. They say they are a cross between a truffle and a caramel – these confections just melt in your mouth! […]

Located in Cambridge, a short walk from the Davis Square T station, is Spindler Confections, a local artisan candy shop. They have a nice selection of chocolates, salted caramels, nut caramels, pate de fruits and brittles. Did you know that they have classes? Class 1 is called Chocolate! Chocolate!

Just when I move out of the neighborhood, new restaurants start popping up. Union Square Donuts moved into the old Wulf’s fish market on Harvard Street. Great to have another option in the ‘hood that is open early, perfect for families with young children. There is a small seating area that was full when I […]

Located just past the Wayside Inn, AJ Cakes is a new (ish) bakery located just over the line in Marlborough. While the majority of Ashley Miller’s business is in custom cakes and pastries, they do have a great pastry case that is filled with lots of goodies. Selections change often, but you can usually find […]

I barely passed geometry in grade school, but I can certainly get behind Pi Day. Each year, Pi Day is on 3/14 – get it? So I did some research to tell you where you can buy all the best pies to celebrate the day. I mean, we all have to do our part right? […]

Leah introduced me to Praliné a while back, and I almost wished she hadn’t. The French bakery puts out some of the most amazing desserts I’ve had. It’s a good thing that it isn’t closer to me, otherwise I might be 50 pounds heavier and broke. The lemon tart is sweet and tart, a fresh clean […]

This summer Lady M Cake Boutique opened up on Newbury Street. This is the first Boston location for the brand, which has other outposts in New York, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Singapore and Hong Kong. The minimalist storefront has full cakes on display and you can order slices or full cakes from the window in the […]
