A sweet Christmas

For a sweet finish to your Christmas celebration – or a holiday party that’s all about dessert – select from irresistible creations from Brothers Marketplace.

From rich and chocolatey cakes to light and flaky pastries, our bakeries are filled with decadent holiday selections.

Light, Flaky & Creamy
Serve up local creations from Montilio’s Bakery, the legendary Boston institution that’s been family-owned for more than 70 years – available at all Brothers locations.

Offer lobster tail pastries, with layers of crisp pastry and delicate cream, or a platter of mini-pastries, including eclairs, cheesecakes, neopolitans, carrot cakes and cream puffs, for a holiday brunch or dessert display.

Cap off your evening with Montilio’s Italian classic tiramisu torte, with rich sponge cake soaked with coffee liqueur and layered with sweet mascarpone filling, surrounded by lady fingers and fresh whipped cream.

Give your holiday another sort of local feel with a traditional Boston Cream Pie! Pair the pie with local Doris’ Peruvian Pastries from Marlborough, including Alfojores, soft cookies filled with dulce de leche and topped with a light coating of sweet powdered sugar.

Rich & Chocolatey
Make a beautiful Brothers Yule Log the festive centerpiece of your holiday dessert buffet. For a little extra boost, surround it with squares of our fudge, made with our own special recipe!

Satisfy everyone’s chocolate craving with a Chocolate Nightmare Cake – rich chocolate frosting nestled between layers of decadent chocolate cake, plus chocolate on top.

In our bakeries, find other luscious choices, such as Cappuccino Fudge Cake,White & Chocolate Mousse Cake, and Chocolate Truffle Bomb.

Or create your own platter of Montilio’s cupcakes, including Chocolate Creamy Dreamy – like a chocolate filled Hostess Cupcake, Boston Cream, Funfetti and many more.

Filled with Fruit
Alongside everything chocolate, display a beautiful fresh fruit tart with a flaky crust, light custard filling and a blend of fresh fruit on top.

Select from local, all-natural, home style fruit pies made from scratch and handcrafted by Ever So Humble Pie Company in Walpole, MA, in flavors such as New England Apple and Wild Blueberry.

For an elegant alternative to pie, serve one of our Rustic Tart Galettes, baked in store in three flavors: Pumpkin, Blueberry Peach and Apple Cinnamon. It’s great with tea after dinner or for holiday brunch.
