Brides to be know that beauty is in the details; that’s why for the last quarter of a century, affianced women have come knocking at the door of Mondelli's Bakeshop where an experienced cake decorator meets bridal clients’ specifications with carefully applied swirls of icing and frosted flowers. Besides custom-cake appointments, the bakers put their attention to detail to use by stocking up the bakery counter with specialty breads, iced cookies, and the shop’s popular chocolate-sundae cake. Bakers also craft an array of donuts and pastries that are rolled, cut, fried, and iced by hand, allowing clients to bite into still-warm treats without consuming them during steamy morning showers.
With a dexterous whirl of her hand, a staffer fills a cup with a soft swirl of frozen yogurt that curls into a perfectly formed peak. After festooning the icy treat with a smattering of cookie crumbs and chocolate chips, she hands the cup over to its owner, who eagerly begins excavating the frosty treat.
This scenario plays out daily at I Can't Believe It's Yogurt, where champions of healthy dessert sling frozen yogurt in a multitude of flavors, as well as low-fat, no-added-sugar, and nonfat varieties. The signature soft-serve can be wolfed down unadorned or bedecked with an assortment of toppings, including fresh fruits and hand-polished sprinkles.
Caramanda's skilled bakers can whip up freshly baked cupcakes in maple pecan and caramel banana cream or sumptuous butterscotch and peanut butter chunk cookies for carryout. The bakery also employs skilled 3D cake-makers, who can morph fondant into a dragon for a birthday, or create a pair of wearable cake gloves for an upcoming boxing match.
