With hundreds of cake flavors and designs, the options are nearly endless at Pinky Sweets Cupcakes and Confections. A rotating selection of cupcakes delights taste buds with flavors such as chocolate salted caramel, chocolate turtle, lemon coconut, and red velvet. Pinky's bakers also design specialty cakes and cupcakes for weddings, and they can arrange cupcakes on custom displays.
Pinky's birthday-party packages, which have themes ranging from spa party to tea party to tax-filing party, allow kids to take on the cupcake-decorating responsibilities while munching on snacks. They often feature a professional photographer.
Tim Hortons, the largest quick-service chain in Canada, crossed the border into U.S. territory in 1995 bearing baked goods, homestyle lunches, and their best-selling offering—fresh-brewed coffee crafted from 100% arabica beans. Tim Hortons’ Timbits—bite-size donut holes that double as no-bounce ping-pong balls—come in 35 flavors, and the selection of the donuts Timbits were punched from vary by store and sprawl across a spectrum from apple fritter to boston cream. Lighter fare such as wraps, parfaits, and the recently unveiled egg-white breakfast sandwich complements custom espresso drinks and real-fruit smoothies, which each hold a full serving of fruit for those under 12 feet tall.
Chocolate is technically a condiment at Dipped Chocolate Cafe, where staffers make treats even tastier by plunging them into the sweet stuff. Aside from traditional combos such as strawberries and chocolate, they also make cake pops even more indulgent with a layer of white or milk chocolate. These can be presented in gift boxes or small or large party platters. And, though chocolate is clearly their focus, they also keep caramel on hand in case an apple needs dipping.
