I was shocked to find this out today. I was also surprised that I had read nothing about it on Chowhound. Their whipped cream and fruit cakes were crowd pleasers and will be sorely missed.

    Wow...that's too bad. They have a large wholesale portion of their business in a building in the industrial park in Readville. They're probably going to put all of their efforts into that. It's a shame.

        RIP indeed. I don't know what my mother will do. We have had one of those rum cakes for her birhday since before my memory begins.

          Me too-they were one of a kind. So sad!

          Wow, I'm really surprised. It always seemed like there was a good amount of people in there when I'd go by. And I'm surprised there wasn't more word out there so people could make final stops into the bakery. Very sad. In the meantime, can someone get the guy to make donuts again over at Diane's?

            Wow, that's another huge whole in the middle of Roslindale Square. Sad.
