Dallas – Celebrity Bakery
With several locations around the Metroplex, there’s no excuse not to sample a tasty treat from Celebrity Bakery. Perfect for a ladies’ lunch, Celebrity offers a great variety of sandwiches, wraps, and salads. The hand-decorated cookies are always a favorite, as are the “thumbprint” cookies.

Dallas – Nothing Bundt Cake
As you might have guessed from the name, Nothing Bundt Cake serves Bundt cake exclusively. Choose from a single-serving mini Bundt cake to a tiered Bundt cake for your next party—you won’t be disappointed. We’re partial to the lemon flavor topped with cream cheese frosting.

Dallas – Sprinkles
One of our favorite ways to take an afternoon break is with a cupcake from Sprinkles. The flavors change weekly, but after much yummy research we found you can never go wrong with the red velvet.
Dallas – Stein’s Bakery
Locals flock to Stein’s Bakery for fresh-baked birthday cakes and cupcakes with sinfully delicious icing. The petit fours are a bridal and baby shower favorite, and a special treat called a “cheese pocket” sparks addictions every day. If you’re planning on bringing treats from Stein’s to an occasion, make sure you buy more than enough—Stein’s treats seem to disappear quickly.
