i remember the first time i tasted a david glass cake



i thought i was in heaven. yes, it was THAT good. i can't even describe it so i'm not even going to try.

i've since become vegan so his cakes are no longer an option. however, i am ever so saddened by this news. it just should NOT be. if you WERE going to buy a cheesecake, you SHOULD have spent the money on HIS. i don't even like cheesecake and yet, i had an orgasmic experience

(i think the first time i had a piece of his cake he ONLY made cheesecakes. now i think he has a few more types)

Legendary Cake Maker, David Glass, Closing Shop

David Glass cakes have graced stomachs from Connecticut to the White House

By LEANNE GENDREAU

Just the mention of a David Glass cake makes mouths water, but the legendary maker of high-end desserts is going out of business.

Desserts by David Glass, a high-end Bloomfield cakery, will close after 28 years, reeling from losing a big wholesale customer, recession and debt, the Hartford Courant reports........

The Hartford Courant

Savor a slice of David Glass cake, and they say you'll never forget the taste.

Now, all that will be left is that memory.

Desserts by David Glass, the iconic, high-end Bloomfield cake purveyor, is going out of business after 28 years, succumbing to the loss of one of its biggest wholesale customers, a recession that crimped spending, and debt that the company could not repay.


The decision to close is a wrenching one for Glass, who started the company in a house on Sargeant Street in Hartford and for years operated under the Blue Onion dome at the Colt Building. He made a name for himself with his signature "Ultimate Chocolate Truffle Cake" and gained rave reviews in New York, launching a brand that became sought after well beyond Connecticut.
