Specialty Dessert is our Specialty.

The holidays are classically a great time for bakeries. People have grand dreams of creating their own delicious desserts at home, and many do, but many just can’t! I don’t know if time or talent is the bigger problem…fear or flavor…but regardless, it’s a great time to be a baker, especially when offering the items that even people who do bake can’t or are afraid to try to bake, the specialty items, which include pate a choux, cannoli’s, chocolates, custards and puddings, anything with pastry cream, puff pastry or layers really. 
Overall, for the year ending August 27th, 2011 in-store bakery sales of specialty desserts increased over 5% from last year! The good news is that the biggest sales jump is Valentines Day, so there is still time to prepare! The second piece of good news is that the winter holidays were healthy, so hopefully, you just had a great week! Mothers Day was excellent last year too…and the biggest sellers outside of specialty desserts were flowers. Candy was very popular, as was chocolate dipped fruit but ├ęclairs and cannoli’s were the top sellers!
