The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. Don a cape of baked goodwill with today's Groupon: for $10, you get either a signature fruitcake or two pounds of your choice of cookie or pastry at Classic Bakery in Gaithersburg (up to a $21 value). This deal is not good for custom cakes.
Combining sweet and fluffy flavors since 1991, Classic Bakery implements decades of homemade family recipes to bake an immense selection of artfully-crafted, tender pastries and dense cakes. Classic Bakery's popular 6-inch Signature Classic Fruit Cake (a $20 value) is concocted with hand-laid fresh fruits, a feathery-yellow sponge cake, and creamy strawberry filling. Let the staff fill up a two-pound box or hollowed-out encyclopedia with any single cookie or pastry, which comes to around 21 pieces. Pastry options include crescent cashew baklava, cream napoleons (wearing a top hat of confectionery sugar and ground pistachios), and black-and-white striped chocolate mini-rollettes. Cookie treats include apricot shortbread, which has a fruity center and a light pistachio garnish, the crispy wafered praline mikado, and more.
- This is the place to be if you're a bakery connoisseur. Great tasting authentic desserts, wonderfully decorated cakes, and a staff that treats people like their own. A+++++ – Kingpin, Urbanspoon
- What I really like about this place are the cookies. I've finally found a place that does really great almond/nut flour cookies. They had these little cookies that look like the dough part to a French macaron and it was crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. It was perfect! – Pistache B., Yelp
Working together with his son Areen, Classic Bakery owner Rubic Movsessian handcrafts cakes, cupcakes, and pastries with recipes passed down through the family for more than 50 years. He bakes three-layer cakes from scratch and offers 40 yellow-cake flavors, such as bourbon vanilla, five sponge-cake flavors, such as marble, and 35 fillings in the likes of oreo cream and fresh mixed fruit. With this vast array of ingredients and the help of arrow-toting cherubs, he also constructs elaborate customized wedding cakes. In addition, he slaps deli cuts of salami, ham, or roast beef between bread and pours steaming cups of armenian coffee and espressos, serving more than 15 sandwiches and an equal number of drinks.
