The bakers at Papa's Pastry whip up decadent desserts fit for special occasions or every day. Their Italian pignoli cookies stand out as best sellers amongst chocolate chips, biscotti, and cinnamon-walnut rugelach. Cakes come in towering tiers of ganache and buttercream or ranch-style ramblers of rich cheesecake. The culinary artists also assemble gluten-free breads, biscuits, and entrees for those with an aversion to wheat and hawk their wares at various farmers' markets from May to October.
To get from Paris’ iconic Palais Garnier opera house to the Louvre, it’s easiest to take a half-mile diagonal of road called Avenue de I’Opera. The renowned roadway funnels through an array of shops and cafes, one of which has housed Barclay Paris and its aromatic baked goods and confections since 1918.
Since then, Barclay Paris has expanded its market, shipping its fruity macaroons, chocolate-covered fruits, and gluten-free truffles to cities across the United States. It’s also expanded its menu by incorporating hors d’oeuvres such as foie gras and French croissants that chef Arnaud Nicolas cuts against the backdrop of the crescent moon.
Baker and sugar artist Chef Dana Herbert has long held a local reputation for his confections—he’s known across Delaware as "The Sugar Daddy" and "King of Cakes.” He rose to national attention on TLC's Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker, where he took home the top prize and caused viewers everywhere to lick their TV screens with his inventive flavors and striking designs as well. His dual training in culinary and pastry arts also won him an invitation to join the esteemed James Beard Celebrity Chef Tour.
At Desserts by Dana, he channels his creativity into customized wedding cakes, intricate sugar sculpture, pastries, and special event cakes. Each edible conversation piece is sculpted around moist, rich cake—available in more than 20 flavors such as Mexican chocolate, raspberry, and pumpkin—which can be filled with mousse, lemon curd, or other sweet fillings. Equally as imaginative as the flavors is the final product, which might arrive decorated with delicate, eye-catching flowers, bows, or damask designs. Chef Dana can also fashion cakes into the likeness of cartoon characters, cars, or the profile of a funny-looking cousin.
Since his successful run on Cake Boss, Chef Dana has garnered even more attention for his sweet treats (which also include cookies, tarts, and pastries). He’s been featured on such networks as NBC and FOX, and lauded within the pages of Huffington Post, Chef Magazine, and Fitness Magazine. He’s also made sure to show that there’s more to good eating than sugar—when he’s not baking, he tours from coast to coast to educate the country on diabetes. During these tours, he helps others learn to create nutritious, flavorful meals and desserts specially tailored for a sugar-free diet.

When patrons step up to the self-serve pumps at Berri Yummi, they fill their cups with the tongue-titillating frozen yogurt flavors that earned the title Best Desserts in Delaware Today’s 2012 Best of Delaware. Though it changes daily, the selection often includes flavors such as peanut butter, white chocolate, and mango, many of which are certified kosher and all of which are high in protein, calcium, and live cultures. Diners are charged by weight, not by flavor, so they can mix as many varieties as they’d like before sprinkling them with any of the 26 toppings. If the endless options overwhelm patrons, they can call their parents for advice in the VIP room or refer to a list of some of Berri Yummi’s tried-and-true favorite combinations.

Paciugo's Latin motto, Ante Dunio Dessertium —meaning Before Dinner, Dessert—neatly summarizes its liberal three-scoops attitude. Its luscious cold creams contain 70% less fat than premium ice cream, thus making it 130% more okay to consume several consecutive pints' worth. A dessert that meets the FDA's standards for healthfulicious food, Paciugo's Turin recipes employ fresh and all-natural ingredients coupled with the finest fruit, nuts, chocolates, and more to churn up scrumptious orbs of sweet sustenance. The gelaterie's menu ushers taste buds toward small piccolo cups ($3.99) with three scoops and up to three different flavors, such as black raspberry, amaretto chocolate chip, chocolate black-cherry swirl, black-pepper olive oil, Mediterranean sea-salt caramel, chocolate-orange saffron, and many more. The medio size includes four scoops and up to four different flavors ($4.99). Go for not really that broke with a three-scoop whipped-cream-topped sundae ($5.49) or a sugar-caffeine epiphany in the form of gelato nestled in espresso or hot chocolate (regular, $5.99). Each of Paciugo's rich, creamy delights is made from whole milk, soy, and water, and no-sugar-added options are available so that a suitable flavor can match with any dietary need, unless you're allergic to joy.
