  • They're back in stock! I grew up eating S’mores whenever there was a bonfire. Maybe you’ve tasted them too, if you’ve gotten your hands on some graham crackers… a big melted marshmallow smooshed between a chocolate bar & two grahams. There is a spin on these that I grew up with, though, and they are just as gratifying. Indoor S’mores have loads of chocolate, mini-grahams, and mini-marshmallows. They are easier to eat than traditional S’mores, and very popular with kids. 16 servings.

    28.00

  • Carrot Cake

    42.00110.00
    This is carrot cake done right. So good, it was Great Taste 2019 Award winner!

  • Coffee Walnut Cake

    42.00110.00

  • Fresh Apple Cake

    42.00110.00
    Another sumptuous cake that uses produce.  I start with a pound of sliced tart apples for each batch. Its flavour is beautiful, and for me, the Wow Factor is in the frosting. It has a mouth-watering Browned Butter Frosting, which is one of the best-kept secrets in cooking or baking. It does something magical to whatever it’s added to. This is a lush cake with a bit of cinnamon and a lot of pecans. Indulge with this. I promise you will be glad you did. Note: Contains pecans.

  • Cinnamon Rolls to bake at home

    12.0025.00
    I grew up inhaling cinnamon rolls whenever I could. I would spread lavish amounts of cream cheese frosting on them because, why not?! A crowd-pleaser for breakfast or dessert, you bake these beauties at home at your convenience. Your home will be filled with the divine smell of Cinnamon Rolls baking, and you will be so glad you got them.  They arrive fresh, proven and ready for the oven that day.  Our cinnamon rolls each come with  their own side of TTC award-winning Cream Cheese Frosting to be spread on their tops after baking.  If you want three extra sides of this Cream Cheese Frosting, you can also order those here at the online shop.
  • We will send three extra sides of the famous TTC Cream Cheese Frosting upon your request. It is absolutely beautiful with hot Cinnamon Rolls. This is the same frosting that goes on our award-winning Carrot Cake, our Red Velvet Cake, and our Coconut Cake.
  • Salted Caramel Cake

    42.00110.00

  • Extra Salted Caramel Sauce for your desserts! Try it with pecan pie, or on top of vanilla ice cream.
  • Our Coconut Cream Pie might be common in North America, but it is not common in Ireland! If you love coconut, you simply must try this dessert. For me, it’s the most glorious and seductive pie. I start with fresh shortcrust pastry, and fill it with a freshly-cooked coconut custard with bits of coconut in it. I top that off with freshly-whipped cream, sprinkle some toasted coconut on top, chill, and voila.  A couple of reviews on this pie:  "No words."  and "I have never tasted anything like this!"
  • A irresistible combination of coconut and cream cheese frosting. The cupcakes are made with egg whites – the result is a light and beautiful cake that melts in your mouth. Note: Only available by the dozen.
  • Coffee Walnut Cupcakes

    7.0020.00
    Coffee-flavoured cupcakes with walnuts and Azera Coffee Frosting.
  • Crack Pie

    28.00
    Founder Krissy Gibson made this on Ireland AM in 2018, and Take the Cake is the only bakery in Ireland that serves it.  Crack Pie comes from New York pastry Chef Christina Tosi.  She recently changed the name of this pie to reflect the name of her café in New York -- "Milk Bar Pie".  Netflix has a show called “Chef’s Table”, in which Chef Tosi is featured making this in Season 4, Episode 1.  If you like toffee or caramel desserts, you will love this topped with unsweetened whipped cream. It is made with butter, brown sugar, eggs, cream, and pure vanilla. Rene Lynch of the L.A. Times says:

    “[the] crust… is divinely rustic and unrefined — don’t bother trying to get a perfect edge as you press it into the pie plate. It just won’t happen. It’s not an understatement to say that this pie defies description… It’s ooey-gooey. Buttery and rich. I’ll wager that it’s not like any pie you’ve ever had before…"

  • Featured on Ireland AM! Complete and utter decadence. A three layer cake with the luscious combination of chocolate ganache and peanut butter.  Also, it happens to be made without wheat or gluten. It easily serves 20 people. Contains peanut butter. Available in 8″ size only.
  • Our enticing version is a  4-layer cake soaked with cherry liqueur and topped with freshly-whipped cream. Many happy customers have said this is the best version of it they've ever had! Available in 8″ size cake only.
  • An exciting new addition to our menu! If you like American S’mores, then give this a try. Traditionally, S’mores are made with graham crackers, a chocolate bar, and roasted marshmallows. This dessert reflects that combination with Chocolate Cake, chocolate frosting and a thin layer of crunchy Golden Grahams cereal (an American product) in the middle. Its frosting is freshly-made marshmallow (contains NO gelatin), then toasted for a dramatic effect. Comes in 8” size only, and serves 16-20.
  • Chocolate layer cake, chocolate frosting, and heaps of chocolate candy piled on top! Available in 8" size only.
