What flavor comes to mind when you think of summer? Maybe it’s the refreshing tartness of a glass of lemonade. Or perhaps it’s the bursting freshness of ripe fruits and berries. Now imagine these flavors dialed up in indulgently luscious desserts, and you’ve got even more reason to look forward to warmer weather. Sweet Street helps you celebrate the season with treats that go hand-in-hand with rising mercury. Our Summerberry Stack is a natural place to start. It features bright berries strewn across citrus-flecked cake aswirl with cool, tart key lime pie and creamy white chocolate mousse. And what would go better poolside than a piece of Piña Colada Cake? Minted Lemonade Bande features an exotic Meyer lemon curd with a sprightly lemon mousseline. Our Greek Yogurt Blackberry Bande tempts with an intoxicating compote of sweet vine-ripened blackberries mellowed with California cabernet. And our Strawberry Vanilla Bean Basil Bande delights with crème brulée mousse, bright strawberry compote and a savory touch of our basil glaze. Speaking of savory, don’t forget that summertime can also be a great time for heartier fare—particularly with Father’s Day coming in June. Our Black Angus Hot Dog Handcrafted Pretzel pays homage to a staple of the ballpark. And our pre-proofed Classic Butter Croissant or Multigrain Croissant is the perfect way to begin a full-flavored sandwich. Top it all off with the pièce de résistance of decadent desserts, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie with REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cups, and the living is decidedly delicious in the summertime.

What is it about cake that seems to make it synonymous with celebration? The modern tradition of enjoying cake on birthdays is believed to have originated in Germany during the 1,400’s. And brides and grooms have celebrated with cake on their wedding day for at least as long. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. The sweet, baked goodie is a festive treat that can put a smile on anyone’s face. And its common “sheet” preparation method is ideal for sharing among large gatherings of people. Of course, the appreciation of cake goes far beyond these traditional celebrations. According to Technomic, cake is the most frequently menued type of baked dessert at the Top 500 full-service restaurants. As you might expect, chocolate leads the charge. Technomic research shows that 62% of consumers would happily order chocolate cake for dessert. But that’s only the beginning of the sweet possibilities. Sweet Street offers a variety of luscious desserts that celebrate the joys of cake. Our newest dessert line, Bandes, is offered in the traditional sheet-cake format—with flexible slicing options to meet a variety of price points and serving occasions. The decadent choices include our tropically enticing Caramelized Pineapple Coconut Bande and the contemporary appeal of our Strawberry Vanilla Bean Basil Bande. Even those who have eliminated gluten from their diets can get in on the lusciousness with our Flourless Hazelnut Chocolate Bande. Traditional 9-in. round cakes are also available to delight dessert lovers. Our Salted Caramel Vanilla Crunch features layers of caramel and creamy custard, while our Four High Carrot Cake is layer upon layer of dark, moist carrot cake. And did we mention that chocolate is a popular cake choice as well? The Choc’late Lovin’ Spoon Cake® is our homage to this king of all dessert flavors, with a giant mouthful of chocolate pudding between two layers of dark, moist, chocolate-drenched chocolate cake.
