the sweetest day

The Sweetest Day falls tomorrow on Saturday October 17th, and is your excuse not to wait until Valentine's Day to reward a friend with something sweet!

Despite conflicting reports on it's origins, The Sweetest Day occurred naturally out of a grassroots desire to sweeten someone's day.

Originating in Cleveland in 1922, The Sweetest Day was planned by a group of retail confectioners and candy company employees. Believing that the city's orphans and shut-ins felt forgotten and neglected, this group distributed candy and small gifts to the underprivileged.

The Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October and offers all of us an opportunity to remember not only the sick, aged, and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed.

Another reason to eat more cake? Sounds good to us!

Remember - Dufflet Small Indulgences Hazelnut Milk Chocolate Crackle on sale $9.99 for 2 packs!

eat more face

An awesome way to combine 2 birthday parties into 1 cake ... Here's a photo of a photo cake we made for one of our fav customers - Wendy in Waterloo. She supplied the photos of her kids (Reid + Emily) and the Transformers ... we combined the photos and put them on this delicious cake!

Edible picture cakes are popular not only for birthdays, but also for corporate events (corporate logos and designs), book and product launches, anniversaries and holiday themes.

And as you can see - they're GREAT for BIRTHDAYS!

Contact any Dufflet retail location for more info and pricing on edible photo cakes and cupcakes!

pumpkin pies, pumpkin tarts, brandy pumpkin cheesecakes ...

This weekend is Thanksgiving, and if you have't pre-ordered your Pumpkin Pies, Tarts and Cheesecakes, may we suggest that you DO IT NOW!

These sell out every year, and none of us want to see your sad faces of pumpkin disappointment over the next few days.

Call or email which ever Dufflet cafe is convenient to you - or order-online at!
