For a sweet finish to your Christmas celebration – or a holiday party that’s all about dessert – select from irresistible creations at Brothers Marketplace.
From rich and chocolatey cakes to light and flaky pastries, our bakery is filled with decadent holiday selections.
Light, Flaky & Creamy
Serve up local cannolis from Montilio’s, the legendary Boston institution that’s been family-owned for more than 70 years with creations available in our Bakery. Cap off your evening with their 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.
Offer Italian lobster tails or “sfogliatella,” with layers of crisp pastry and delicate cream, or a platter of mini-pastries, including eclairs, cheesecakes, Neapolitan, carrot cakes and cream puffs, for a holiday brunch or dessert display.
Or tap into another local tradition with a classic Boston Cream Pie!
Rich & Chocolaty
Make a beautiful Yule Log from our bakery the festive centerpiece of your holiday dessert buffet. For a little extra boost, surround it with squares of Brothers Marketplace 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.
You’ll find other luscious choices on offer too, 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
