Gallery of Cakes’ master of cakes, Yonnie, uses his experience as an ex-pizza chef and the owner and head instructor of Yonnie’s Cake Art School to craft delicious and creative baked treats. All treats are non-dairy and under the supervision of Kosher Miami, ranging from cupcakes and buttercream cakes to sheet cakes and fondant cakes for all occasions. As an outlet for his artistic spirit, Yonnie also specializes in custom cake decoration, yielding inspired cake designs such as cakes in the shape of the Torah, a sheriff’s hat, or a 3D rendition of a princess’ castle.
Though you may not garner it from the name, the menu at Bagelworks goes far beyond their eponymous doughy diameter. Onion and honey whole-wheat bagels, made onsite, hold up on their own with a schmear of cream cheese but work just as well bolstering deli fare such as house salads, eggy breakfast dishes, and fish platters. Other items on the expansive menu include grilled cheese, pastrami paninis, and pancakes.
Eggnog tends to be a holiday treat, but not at Suretto Gelato. Its zabaione, an eggnog-flavored blend of eggs and sweet wine, is one of more than 40 housemade flavors served year-round. Besides classics like coffee and chocolate, Suretto Gelato's varieties include figs mixed with cheesecake gelato and blue sky, a cotton candy–flavored treat popular with youngsters. For a fruitier snack, visitors can opt for lemon, mango, passionfruit, and other sorbets.
In 1954, Gino's Italian Market's founder, Anthony Paparella, moved from the teeming fisheries of Bari to Hoboken, New Jersey, where he married a fellow Italian and worked as a builder for nearly 20 years. After retiring to South Florida in '73, Paparella brought a taste of his homeland stateside by opening a bustling bazaar filled with fresh produce, succulent meats, and sweet desserts.
The market's commitment to tradition and family can be found in all of its business practices, from its catered feasts of traditional baked pastas and rib roasts, to e-mail correspondences from the resident Nonna that contain expert advice on party planning, recipes, and optimal angles for cheek-pinching. Shoppers consult Nonna Anna and handy recipe guides to concoct rich sauces and tasty entrees from the store's bountiful selection of cheese, wine, ripe tomatoes, and imported Italian goods.
In addition to rounding out dinner plates with house-made prosciutto bread, fresh chicken, and juicy cuts of beef, Gino's graces weddings, desserts, and banquets with custom cakes and pastries.
Sugar Cakes & Supplies offers budding bakers the instruction and supplies they need to create their own cakey, culinary masterpieces. Each class will educate curious cooks on the ins and outs of batter concoction and proper baking methods as they craft a rich red-velvet cake that can make a great treat for birthdays or a squishy stand-in for a missing footrest. While ovens produce a heady perfume of sugar, butter, and delicious smoking jackets, baking students will whip up a dreamy frosting of cream cheese and white chocolate with which to coat the cooled cakes, before they devour the delicious un-fruits of their layered labor. The class will prepare one cake to be shared between all of the participants.
Dawn Michelle Simon](http://gr.pn/GRjH5P), a registered dietician, was tired of looking for grain-free baked goods for her clients with dietary restrictions. Rather than poring over the limited options available in stores, she developed her own line of baked goods, drawing upon organic ingredients to forge loaves and confections free of gluten, grain, and casein—a milk protein. She continually tinkers with new recipes, striving to craft products so that her clients can continue to consume the treats they enjoy or recover blackmail photos from a duck with dietary restrictions. Once off-limits, specially crafted breads such as chocolate-chip loaves and hamburger and hotdog buns arrive grain-free with accompanying batches of cupcakes and muffins.
