Awash in vibrant hues of green, purple, and yellow, the interior of Skoops of River Edge playfully hints at the kaleidoscope of ice-cream flavors that fill its freezers. The shop’s scoopers pile 35 flavors of hard and soft ice cream into cups or cones, pausing only to spoon up dollops of italian ice and adorn sundaes with thick rivers of chocolate fudge. Aside from the shop’s scoopable creations, creamy milk shakes pour from blenders and frozen yogurt pumps from whirring soft-serve machines. Customers of all ages can be spotted perched on the shop's colorful stools throughout the week sipping on floats or pouring smoothies down their backs to cool off.

For more than 25 years, Sarah Zadoroznyj's home-baked treats were the talk of the town. Those lucky enough to sample her cookies and cakes at her daughter Rebecca's bake sales and school functions insisted that her desserts were the best and they urged the skilled baker to start her own shop. So she and Rebecca did just that.

At Z-Licious, the duo uses fresh ingredients and preservative-free recipes to keep their customers coming back for favorites such as biscotti and cupcakes. Flavorful, well-crafted eats are the specialty here: "You don?t need a $3 cookie bigger than your hand that?s usually not even fully baked," mom and daughter explain, which is why their ovens produce goodies that prize quality and affordability over size alone. Sarah and Rebecca also see their business as an opportunity to help the planet, using eco-friendly packaging materials and offering discounts on coffee when customers bring in their own mugs.

It's always flattering when your dessert is the party's favorite. Carousel Cakes—and its bite-size offshoot, Cupcakes by Carousel—knows this feeling well. The bakeries' creative confections have received commendations from every corner of the media, from Time Out New York and InStyle to The View and, perhaps most notably, Oprah, who featured their red-velvet cake in O Magazine and named their blue-velvet cake one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2012. "Gayle fell hard for this blue velvet cake with cream cheese icing and sugar snowflakes," the media icon gushed. "Just add coffee, milk, or a flute of champagne." The treats also sweeten meals at more than 1000 restaurants, including Zabar's and the American Museum of Natural History in New York and Aldo & Gianni Ristorante and Sear Restaurant in Closter, New Jersey.

As a sister company to the family bakery that Martin Lefkowitz opened in 1965, Cupcakes by Carousel specializes in handheld versions of the treats that won all this acclaim. Besides a mini adaptation of the famous red-velvet cake, the staff creates confections such as the Curious George—a vanilla cake filled with banana custard and topped with peanut butter buttercream frosting and chocolate ganache—and its version of Hostess’s Pink Snowball. All the shop's cakes and pies are certified kosher, and staff can even fill up glasses with swirls of their famous frostings and toppings for clients who like their cupcakes sans cake. Cupcakes by Carousel also lends its hand in local communities. Recently, the Englewood shop raised money for girls' education in developing nations through the nonprofit organization She's The First.

What began as a traditional German konditorei nearly 80 years ago has transformed a lot—by changing its name, adding an espresso machine, and hiring French Culinary Institute grad Cristina Nastasi as pastry chef—but when it comes to the essentials, not much has changed. Rudy's Bakery & Cafe still packs its gleaming display cases with cookies, danishes, cupcakes, and cakes, the latter of which can also be customized for weddings, birthdays, and baby showers for mothers or rain clouds that are expecting. But the spot also features more novel treats, such as gelato and cake pops, along with a range of specialty espresso drinks.
