Your palate isn’t picky. From melons to mascarpone cheese and chocolate chips to toasted coconut, there’s a taste for every tongue and a topping for every sweet treat. We’ve compiled some of our local favorites, but didn’t want to limit your choices to just chocolate or pies—we mixed things up a bit.

Fresh Fruit Tart

 

More than one pound of fresh fruit is used to make the Fresh Fruit Tart from The Fresh Market bakery in Southlake. These fruits include sliced strawberries, blueberries, kiwi and pineapple. Served atop an all butter imported European shortbread crust painted with chocolate, the tarts are filled with a light Bavarian crème.

Key Lime Pie

 According to Winewood Grill’s head chef Francisco Aguado, he believes that in addition to serving favorites such as chocolate mousse and bananas foster, having a very light, made fresh dessert was in order. “We decided that Key Lime Pie was something the Winewood was missing. Made from scratch with fresh key lime juice, the dessert is able to fulfill that need and also our guest's sweet tooth.”

Black Gold Cake

 Decadent chocolate and vanilla cake filled with a salted caramel hazelnut buttercream. The slight saltiness in the buttercream brings out the rich chocolate flavor in the ganache glaze that the whole cake is drenched in. “Personally, it’s my new favorite cake,” says Kristin Leonard, Interim Bakery Team Leader at Whole Foods Market in Colleyville. “It’s exclusive to Whole Foods Market, which is a plus because it means it’s made with all natural ingredients. We don’t use any artificial ingredients in any of our products, and this cake is no exception. Best of all, it’s made fresh inside each store by our talented cake decorators.”

Cookie Sandwiches

 Made of two freshly baked cookies filled with Smallcakes' signature frosting and garnishes, the cookie sandwiches make a nice afternoon treat. Some of the favorite combinations are chocolate chip cookies filled with vanilla buttercream and tiny pink sprinkles, and red velvet cookies with white chocolate chunks, filled with cream cheese frosting and pecans.

Tiramisu

 

A customer favorite, Grimaldi’s Tiramisu is your typical Italian “pick me up” dessert. Made with coffee liqueur-dipped ladyfingers and layered with a mixture of eggs, sugar and mascarpone cheese, this square “cake” is topped with fine powdered cocoa and served atop a drizzle of chocolate sauce.

Scharffen Berger Molten Chocolate Cake

 

 Trio’s Scharffen Berger Molten Chocolate Cake is a warmed dark chocolate cake served with a housemade chipotle cinnamon ice cream. It is a fantastic balance of sweet and heat with a hint of smokiness from the chipotle.
