Just Desserts


Each year, across the country, fewer and fewer businesses choose to make and sell delicious sweets from scratch. The cost of whole, raw ingredients, skilled labor, and the short shelf life of most sweets all work together to make staying profitable a real challenge to small bakeries and confectioneries. Fortunately, Western New York is home to a good number of businesses committed to offering their devoted clientele the best of the best and notable noshes (like the cannoli below), to boot.


In the May 2014 issue of Spree, our cadre of writers have shared their favorite indulgences and we hope you see it as encouragment to support these small local businesses—with your dollars and your extra calories!
