  • Coconut Cake

    42.00110.00

  • 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 Cake

    42.00110.00
    A traditional favourite, coffee-flavoured cake with walnuts. In fact, the Azera Coffee Frosting alone has tied (along with Browned Butter Frosting) for my all-time favourite frosting. Absolutely delicious. Note: Contains walnuts.

  • 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.  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…”
  • Extra Cream Cheese Frosting for your desserts!
  • 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.
  • Since I was a child, my favourite dessert has been French Silk Pie. If you’re a fan of a good chocolate tart, you shouldn’t miss this American classic. We begin by melting dark chocolate, then we whip eggs into it, one at a time, for at least ½ hour per pie. The effect is a dreamy, smooth chocolate that may take you by surprise. This pie is named very appropriately. Shortcrust base topped with freshly-whipped cream. Allergen note: This dessert contains raw pasteurised egg.
  • 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. If you would like a short written message on the cake, such as “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”, please include it in the Special Instructions box below. Free of charge.
  • This fabulous cake is 51% apple! This is a lush cake with a bit of cinnamon and lots of pecans.   It is topped with mouth-watering Browned Butter Frosting. Note:  Only available by the dozen.
  • 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.
  • What makes a Key Lime Pie a Key Lime Pie?  KEY LIMES, of course!  We make ours with authentic Key Lime juice from Key West, Florida.  This is one of our only imported ingredients, and we would never settle for less.  Key Limes are small, zesty limes that really pack a punch -- a very different experience from regular limes.  This pie is exquisite – digestive biscuit crust with a key lime filling, topped off with freshly whipped cream and fresh lime zest.  It’s unlike anything you’ve ever tasted before!  If a Key Lime Pie isn't made with authentic Key Lime juice, it's not a real Key Lime Pie.  This is the real deal.

    Are you a pecan lover? This divine pie is made with loads of pecans, brown sugar and dark rum. Particularly popular in the southern U.S. states, it is known for its sweet, gooey richness. It is to be eaten warm OR cold, and definitely with a scoop of plain vanilla bean ice cream.
  • It is a dense, moist cheesecake using Philadelphia cream cheese and pure vanilla. The crust is made with ground digestive biscuits. I also make a sour cream topping for it, which deepens the flavour. This is a creamy, flavourful cheesecake that will not disappoint.
