Tammie Coe Cakes

If you live in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, chances are you have already come across some amazing Tammie Coe cakes and cupcakes. These masterpieces really do "look to good to eat," but once you take that first bite, you'll be glad you did! The cookies are outstanding, but to get the full experience you must try the cake or the less indulgent cupcake. The frosting melts in your mouth and the brightly colored sprnkles will make you feel like a kid again. If you need a cake for any occasion be sure to order one of these gourmet cakes and it's sure to be a crowd pleaser. 

T. Cook's

Located at the Royal Palms Hotel, this is the place to go for a special occassion. Aside from the amazing location and setting (very princess-like), the food is terrific. When you approach T. Cook's, you get the feeling you are walking into something special and the whole experience builds to a climax when dessert finally arrives. Go there on your birthday and you get an amazing treat, with you name and a special message written on your plate in edible syrup. There is nothing like a T. Cook's to make a girl feel loved! 

Au Petit Four

Dreaming of a trip to Paris? Okay, well while you are figuring out the details grab the girls and get the full Parisian experience right here in Phoenix. From the atmosphere to the wonderful cuisine, it's like a mini vaca right here in the desert. Try traditional French baked goods with the mouth watering patisserie menu. From apple tarts to mousse, there is something so sophisticated and  decedent about having these European delights. If you are hosting a party and don't feel like all the hastle and mess that goes along with baking, take a trip to Petite Four and grab a dessert tray - your guests will be so impressed. Bon Appetit! 


This is one place you must visit whether you are passing through Phoenix or live here. If you were to walk by Cibo, you may not even notice it at first glance. Just like many businesses in the Art District, this trendy restaurant has been converted from a house into a popular culinary establishment. You could make a whole dinner out of it, but who wants to waste room when there is dessert to be had!? At Cibo, you will have crepes better than any you can even imagine! Try the ones topped with Nutella, a wonderful hazelnut, chocolate spread. 

Honey Moon Sweets

Ladies, do not be alarmed - just because it's called Honey Moon Sweets does NOT mean this isn't an awesome single girl splurge alert. While this well-loved bakery does wedding cakes, that is far from the only thing they do. From breakfast pasteries to after dinner snacks and mid-day cookie pick-me-ups, this is a great place to get together with the ladies for some catching up. As long as no one mentions that dirty little word "diet" then you can all indulge blissfully. The best part is that you can even schedule a tour - let's just hope it doesn't turn into a Willy Wonka situation!
