Who can say 'no' to a delicious & locally made dessert?

If you've been invited to dinner or are treating some guests to a homemade meal, don't worry about making dessert - bring a local treat instead! 
 

Pie is often a traditional and yummy choice for dessert. In Oakville on Lakeshore Rd, you can find that perfect pie to bring at the Black Forest Pastry Shop. This family owned business is one of the only places to find old fashioned pies in Oakville and their massive selection won't let you down! Also, during November and December head to Cupid's Gourmet Bakery, also in Oakville, for their special Cranberry Apple Snowflake pie.  

Holiday meals can be filling, so why not bring tasty tarts for dessert? Spicers Bakery & Deli in Tillsonburg serves over 7 varieties of tarts. They naturally have traditional butter tart, but they also make Raspberry Coconut, Pumpkin, Cherry, and Lemon Meringue. Seasonal tarts include Strawberry Cream, Rhubarb, and Mince Meat.

For a more rich and creamy dessert, opt for a cheesecake. Residents of our Kitchener and Waterloo buildings can easily get their hands on some amazing cheesecakes at La Pâtisserie. Cheesecake here comes in 11 different flavours from the rich Turtle Cheesecake, to vanilla cheesecake topped with real strawberries and cream. Other varieties include Brownie, Skor, Mint, and Baileys.

Everyone loves cake, so why not pick up a unique cake for that special dinner? In Toronto, Bunners Bakeshop offers an all vegan, gluten free menu with many cakes to die for! Dufflet Pastries' Queen of Cakes collection, features one of a kind cakes in irresistible flavours including Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, White Chocolate Mousse, and Turtle Fudge Cake.

Bringing single serve treats can make dessert easier to manage with a crowd. Find Fairly Frosted Vegan Bakery in Guelph, for great tasting vegan treats made nut and gluten free. Tiny Cakes in Cambridge has a vast selection of cupcakes perfect for any occasion, and La Casa Dolce Bakery in Mississauga has a selection of hand-made cake pops that offer just the right sweetness after a big meal. Our Burlington residents can visit Kelly's Bake Shoppe for gourmet cupcakes and more, which also happen to be all vegan and gluten free!
 

It's time to wow your party hosts with amazing desserts from a bakery close to home!
