All About Dessert

  • Cake
    Dark and Delicious Chocolate Cake with Rich Chocolate Frosting

    You can’t beat chocolate on chocolate. This decadently fudgy cake is made all the richer with coffee granules and buttermilk. Serve it at a birthday party or whenever you need an intense hit of chocolate.

  • Panna Cotta
    Buttermilk Panna Cottas

    In Italian, “panna cotta” means “cooked cream.” This molded custard dessert is flavoured with tangy buttermilk, almond extract and lemon peel and its topped with pomegranate gelatin.

  • Tiramisu
    Quick Tiramisu

    Tiramisu may seem complicated, but this light Italian dessert can actually be very quick to put together. We use store-bought ladyfingers to streamline the process.

  • Pudding
    Sticky Toffee Puddings

    These individual desserts are baked up in muffin pans. Top them with an irresistible toffee sauce and a dollop of whipped cream.

  • Mousse
    Raspberry Chocolate Mousse

    Chocolate mousse is great — but it’s even better when it’s layered over fresh or frozen raspberries. This rich dessert is also spiked with raspberry liqueur and crème de cacao.

  • Cake
    Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

    Red Velvet cake first appeared at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York in the 1920s but has experienced a huge resurgence in popularity over the last decade or so. This cake contains a bit of cocoa, but it’s there to enhance the red colour, not to provide any chocolaty flavour. We ice this cake with a traditional Cream Cheese Frosting.

  • Crème Brülée
    Chocolate Crème Brülée

    Crème Brulée is as fun to make as it is to crack into. This version is made with semi-sweet chocolate for added flavour and richness.

  • Cheesecake
    Classic Baked Cheesecake

    Serve this luscious cheesecake with a drizzle of your favourite dessert sauce.

Gifting Goodies

  • Brownies
    Chocolate Truffle Squares

    This dessert is a chocolate lover’s dream. We top a chocolate cookie crust with a gooey coffee liqueur-spiked chocolate truffle filling.

  • Cookies
    Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

    A little bit of cream cheese will give your sugar cookies a softer, creamier texture and a richer taste. Roll out the dough and use your favourite cookie cutters to make the prettiest Valentine's Day cookies.

  • Cookies
    Raspberry Window Cookies

    These pretty sandwich cookies have a cutout on the top cookie, revealing the raspberry jam filling.

  • Cookies
    Spicy Crackled Chocolate Cookies

    These cookies are made with sugar and spice and all things nice. Their cracked or crinkled exterior makes these cookie stand out and is created by rolling your cookie dough in icing sugar before baking. 

  • Truffles
    Irish Cream Truffles

    Irish cream liqueur gives a distinctive flavour to these rich chocolate truffles. These are quick and easy to make, thanks to the help of a can of store-bought frosting.

    Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies

    Chocolate and dried cherries are a terrific match. Keep some of these cookies on hand as a weeknight dessert or a special lunchbox treat.
