The Case for Singles

 

For three decades, Simma’s Bakery has crafted decadent cheesecakes, wedding cakes and pastries for residents of Milwaukee. Current owner Peggy Carollo points out that times are changing, and single-serve options are gaining popularity quickly.

In fact, bakeries around the country are witnessing a surge in demand for single slices of cake and cheesecake.

Simma’s makes more and more single-serve cakes and cheesecakes, the latter of which is a signature recipe with a chocolate cake base, a thin layer of raspberry filling and covered in chocolate ganache.

“People today are looking for delicious sweet bites they can take with them or enjoy as a snack,” Carollo explains.

In Boston, Flour Bakery + Cafe recently introduced a new birthday cake made with vanilla bean, chocolate pudding frosting and homemade sprinkles. The cake is available by the slice or as a full cake at all Flour locations through pre-order.

Freed's Bakery in Las Vegas has a wide variety of cake slice options on it menu. Everything from Strawberry Shortcake and Black Forest cake flavors to Oreo and Snickers cheesecake flavors are available to customers. One of it most popular cake slice flavors is Wedding Cake, a white cake filled with a signature bavarian cream, fresh sliced strawberries, and iced with true European buttercream.

Make sure you slice your cakes in exact same-size portions to add to the elegant appeal. An automatic cake slicer comes in handy here.
