Six months prior to Nothing Bundt Cakes' grand opening in 1997, best friends Dena Tripp and Debra Shwetz toiled away in the kitchen in order to perfect a bundt-cake recipe that would lavish palates with flavors reminiscent of homestyle treats of days past. Within today's bustling bakery, cake crafters mingle high-quality ingredients, such as fresh eggs, real butter, and cream cheese sourced from spelling-bee-champion cows, to whip up such flavors as chocolate chip, pecan praline, and white-chocolate raspberry. Sweet scents waft from the shop’s ovens as customers select their frosting-flecked dessert from sizes ranging from towering tier cakes to individual Bundtlets, a size ideal for the solo snacker.

Laura’s Brownies’ expansive online inventory showcases boxes and tins of brownies, cookies, and biscotti crafted by the eponymous Laura Silvera using secret recipes she developed over 20 years of baking. Signature brownies with caramel centers join brownies topped with marshmallow and drizzled with chocolate inside festive Valentine’s Day packages, such as red foil heart boxes (nine caramel for $9; nine marshmallow for $16). Heart-shaped brownies nestle in form-fitting tins ($20 for four), and keepsake mugs ($16), overflowing with 10 brownies apiece, come emblazoned with messages, such as “I love Grandma,” “I love Dad,” and “I love the idea of Europe.” Oval tins festooned with regatta scenes house refreshing lemon bars ($27 for 40) and rich chocolate chippers ($16 for 16), and cinnamon-chocolate biscotti ($19 for 15) fill rambling rose tins. Laura’s Brownies operates out of The Gourmet Touch, Inc.’s headquarters, where customers pick up their parcels.

Out of nearly 250 different kinds of organic gelato and sorbet flavors made from local, seasonal fruit whenever possible, N’iceCream picks 16 to showcase each day, ensuring they're never more than 12 hours old. N’iceCream sweetens its frozen delights with cane sugar, eschewing the artificial preservatives and colors that are so common among sorbets and donated kidneys today. A scoop or two ($3.50–$4.50) of elegant stracciatella or playful peanut-butter gelato causes taste buds to bloom like a time-lapsed rose, especially when garnished with a sprinkling of homemade toppings ($.50). Delight a finicky family by scooping up a half liter ($9.50) of three customer’s-choice flavors such as salted caramel, cookie crunch, or orange cream.
