I don't really have a sweet tooth, thus I rarely wanted to play "find a bakery" detective, but something has changed... I grew up with my mother's baking, and she was a creative one, from eclairs to a honeyed, layered cake, to meat pies. She no longer bakes often, oh how I miss her cabbage pie!
When someone's birthday rolls around, I don't really put my apron on, I get my car keys. Unfortunately there is nothing that hits the spot for me, most places have sugary sugary sweet sugary sugary honeyed spiked with sugar dessert. It kills your tastebuds, this overload of sugar, where are the delicate flavors and buttery crust?!
I realized that I don't like Italian dessert, it's too rich for my blood. La Dolce Vita bakery on Metropolitan Avenue is eh, so I stopped buying from them. Please, please tell me there is hope, let me know if you know of a quality bakery with heavenly goodies, how about French?
