Dessert is the favorite part of any kid's meal, but Toni Chiappetta took it to extremes. As a child, she would bake her own cakes and sneak bites of the pies at her parents' luncheonette. She learned her earliest techniques from her mother, but went on to study at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts and bake for several prominent restaurants. Eventually, this path led Toni back to the small kitchen in her apartment, where she baked in an oven no larger than a breadbox. As she delivered her sweet samples to local distributors, her talent quickly propelled her into a full-size professional kitchen and then to the current home of Sweetie Pies inside the Hatt Building. She still oversees her bakery's operations today, but leaves much of the day-to-day business in the hands of her small-but-capable staff.
In an onsite café, Toni's crew creates savory tarts, paninis, and wraps, as well as individual-size pastries and cakes. Inside the bakery, they churn out cookies in mouthwatering combinations of chocolate cherry and oat coconut walnut. They also fill 10-inch pie crusts with blends of apples, peaches, and berries—nabbing the attention of Food & Wine magazine and Rachael Ray, who ranked the bakery's pumpkin pie No. 1 of the season in 2008. To commemorate nuptials, the staff builds two- and three-layer custom cakes in flavors such as chocolate fudge and carrot and adds ornate decorations and edible cue cards for best-man speeches.

“We tried five different pastries. The pecan bar and nutty brownie were really good, as was the berry, cream cheese (or sour cream) coffee cake. The bear claw and chocolate croissant were ok. It's a nice place to eat there or to take away. There is a parking lot out front and a parking garage across the street so it's easy parking. Free two hour limit.”
