Unlike so many of the crappy bakeries in the area, which bake up frozen, prefab items, Destination Bakery bakes true, says Atomica. Destination makes every element of their baked goods from scratch, except for the little round chocolate candy topping some of their cupcakes. That one single thing they buy from one of their customers.
Sticky buns and banana cream tarts are excellent. Nectarine tarts have decent pastry, but perfect fruit. Nancy Berry’s favorite is their apple crumb tart, with great, buttery crust, and soft-but-not-mushy apples. She also likes their raspberry jam and marzipan tart, and coffeecakes, too. In fact, everything she’s tried at Destination has made her happy.
