About Gourmet Desserts
Guided by more than 35 years of experience pampering sweet teeth, Ezzat Tadros leads a team of confectioners as they pop brownies, strudels, and cookies into the oven and pipe colorful curlicues of frosting onto cakes.
Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and Elmo cupcakes delight tykes with friendly faces, and bouquets of steam blossom from individual cheesecakes, carrot cakes, peach cobblers, and raspberry squares. The aroma of freshly baked bread swirls above croissants, the warm loaves serving as ideal fodder at parties or at least an excuse for arriving covered in flour. In the bustling kitchen, the bakers also create custom cakes for all occasions, sculpting batter and fondant into the shape of guitars, football helmets, and even slot machines.
