The third-generation family of sweetsmiths at Pierre’s Bakery forges high-quality ingredients into freshly baked treats, ready to win over the most stubborn of sweet teeth. After customers place their order, bakers rappel from the rafters to assemble treat caches with the requested homemade goodies. Red velvet cupcakes can tuck in alongside chocolate-chip-studded rounds, or handheld vanilla cakes can canoodle with sugar cookies. To finish off orders, bakers dip a quintet of strawberries into a warm bath of chocolate. Pierre’s Bakery has proffered its sugary creations for the Taste of Chicago as well as for the cacao-based celebrations hosted by For the Love of Chocolate scholarship foundation.
