ISO Quality Pastries/Petit Fours

  • a

My husband and I are throwing a big party in August to celebrate our 50th birthdays and our 20th anniversary. We are catering it ourselves but before I start baking like a fiend I want to see if there is somewhere I could get stuff instead. My friend would be coming from the city and could pick up an order. I want to try out the pastries before I decide. I am looking for small cakes, profiteroles/eclairs, tartlets and such. Can anyone recommend places for me to try? Thanks.

        Also, check out White's Bakery in Canton at the Village Shoppes on Washington Street or in Brockton. Very large selection of cakes and pastries at reasonable prices. This is a new location and is large and bright with wonderful original creations as well as all the ususal suspects. Enjoy.

    2. I think this is your place. Perfect tiny little pastries for tasting.
