At Easy Freezy, the possibilities for frozen yogurt sundaes are practically endless. First, there are dozens of rotating flavors to choose from?and that doesn't even include twist flavors, such as Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Strawberry Shortcake, or Peanut Butter Cup. Once a flavor's selected, it's on to the toppings. Gummy bears, Oreo cookies, fresh fruits, and plenty of other sweets are available to dress up the perfect treat to suit your tastes.
The smell of chocolate-chip cookies baking in the oven has a tendency to unleash waves of childhood memories, especially when those cookies are iconic Nestl? Toll House creations. At Nestl? Toll House Caf? by Chip, passionate bakers coax out these memories by using Nestl? products to create decadent desserts that taste just as satisfying as they did years ago.
Chocolate, coconut, peppermint, pistachio, raspberry, and salted caramel?at YoBerry Frozen Yogurt, these aren't a sundae's toppings. Instead, they're its foundation. Other frozen yogurt flavors include apple pie, cake batter, red velvet cake, and blueberry a?ai, making these sweet treats a clear step apart from the everyday ice cream. Once toppings such as mochi, almond bits, breakfast cereals, and white chocolate chips start piling on, desserts can get so elaborate customers may have to apply for a building permit.
Before Pam Turkin flung open the doors to the first Just Baked in 2009, she was just baking cupcakes on the weekends. But after her corporate travels took her past a growing number of cupcake shops outside of southeastern Michigan, she decided to turn her hobby into a career. She now helms 17 shops in the area, where she and her staff of dessert experts whip up eclectically flavored cupcakes such as red velvet cheesecake, chocolate chip cookie dough, and grumpy cake. In addition to the mouthwatering flavors, all of their items boast real butter, real eggs, and real milk as opposed to artificial ingredients from artificial cows and chickens.
The bakers at Marv’s Bakery's family-owned-and-operated business have been whipping up scrumptious baked goods from original and updated recipes for more than 45 years. Celebrate anniversaries of births, weddings, and days of the week with a black-forrest cake ($9.99/half; $18.99/whole), or embrace your inner Parisian by noshing on fresh baked breads, such as the cheddar-cheese white ($4.49) or french rustic ($3.59) bread. Overzealous sweet teeth can clamor around an array of mouth-watering pastries on display, such as danish rolls ($1.39), scones ($1.09), and cookies baked the old-fashioned way—with butter and plenty of Laurel and Hardy banter ($0.79 each).
It's easy to lose your mind for a second upon walking into Leaf & Berry. That's because shortly after you notice the gleaming tile wall outfitted with more than a dozen frozen yogurt dispensers, you'll realize there's nothing keeping you from walking right up to it. These are self-serve stations, where you can draw as much yogurt as you want into your cup. Though enjoyable, the process is a difficult one, as you first have to choose from flavors such as salted caramel, pistachio, and greek tart. The selection of toppings is dizzying as well: a buffet-style bar boasts a colorful spread of gummy bears, Ghirardelli white chocolate, mango boba, and fresh pineapple. In addition to crafting their own fro-yo masterpieces, guests often opt to grab frozen custard, blend their preferred fro-yo flavor into a smoothie, or sip on a freshly brewed cup of one of 40 international gourmet teas.
Of course, the sweet treats draw a crowd of all ages to Leaf & Berry most days. But on various Saturday nights, performer Bentley James hosts Drag Queen Bingo, now featured on WDIV Channel 4's "Live in the D" show. The offbeat event has become quite popular with locals, who nibble on their custom desserts while teaching gummy bears how to mark numbers on their cards.
