Baked Goods In Westchester

Any Updates on Baked Goods /Cupcakes in Westchester. Im looking for a new spot!

    1. Interesting, JMF. I'm not impressed with their 'oh sorry we've run out of the product you want the most' scam they are still pulling. They should KNOW by now to make a certain number of items that sell the most. It's a clever product boondoggle they are pulling on the customer, and it works. Some customers go out of their way to get there, salivating like the dogs of Pavlov to get the product ahead of other customers. Shameful.

      While I think their baked goods are very, very good, they are NOT worth the mind control they exert on their customer nor the exorbitant prices they charge to those 'lucky' enough to get there in time.

      Sadly, I cannot think of another bakery in Westchester whose products are as good as theirs and available at all times.

      For this reason, I bake my own when I want them.

    2. Cerbones in Rye Ridge is good, as are Harrison bakery, White Plains bakery, and Enrico's in Hartsdale. These are all moderately priced, for Westchester.

      For outrageously priced baked goods, you can't beat Lulu's.

      A new spot? I don't know of any.

        White Plains bakery is borderline wretched. Cupcakes in general have seemed to have jumped the shark. Wau too much frosting imho. You can't beat Lulu's versions of ring dings, yodels & nutter butters though...seriously good tatsing bakery!

        1. re: cubanat

          I so agree. I was looking forward to their 7 layer that was recommended and it had no taste at all.

      2. Haven't tried this place. If you do, please report back:

          Wow Ive never even heard of this place but its apparently right up the street from me! The menu looks awesome!! I cant wait to try it!

          1. re: MikiLovesSugar

            Is this a retail shop or just through third party stores and farmers markets?

            1. re: MikiLovesSugar

              MikiLovesSugar, Lulu's is closed today.

              Their website does not have prices for cakes -- I know you go there. Would you know the smallest size cake they make and an approximate price? I am looking to get a dulce de leche cake. Thanks!

              1. re: MikiLovesSugar

                It's though the catering offices to the rear. I liked the breads. My DH did not. Very very nice people. They did sell to the public. They also have regular hours as well as a email newsletter.

              2. re: mrsdebdav

                Michael's Gourmet in Scarsdale was selling some bread from a new bakery
                in Scarsdale. I must admit, as a bread baker, I was not impressed with the product.

              3. Bedford Pastry Shop on route 22 have excellent cookies. Unfortunately, $22 a pound. I would also recomment their danish, but not refrigerated cakes, they look beautiful, but are not tasty. Good luck.

                1. Are you looking for a walk-in bakery that you can just come into off the street? If not, and you are alooking for someone to custom bake for an occasion, I would recommend Nancy's Cakes

                    Good to know, Avalondaughter.

                    Are their products very, very good, since their prices are very, very high?

                    1. re: anonymouse1935

                      I haven't tried the cookies, but the cakes are to die for. They are made with high quality ingredients (butter, buttermilk, high-end chocolate). The cake I had made for my husband's birthday last year (and it was a large cake) was universally loved by all who ate it. Definitely worth the price.

                      1. re: Avalondaughter

                        Thanks, Avalondaughter. It appears whatever one orders can be picked up in Harrison, so that's good.

                        It's nice to have an alternative to Lulu's.

                        I'm curious, how did you find out about them, I've seen NO press on them.

                        1. re: anonymouse1935

                          I've never heard of them either and I work in Harrison. Anyone know where the pick up location is in Harrison?
