Carrara Pastries creates delicious & decadent “fine Italian pastries”. The Carrara family is from Lucca, Northern Italy. They opened their business in December 2011. Discovering this place a week ago made me thankful to know that I have a scrumptious, bite of N. Italy in my own backyard. This past week I visited the pastry shop four times. I’ve eaten over seven of their delicious desserts. Their large display refrigerators allow you to view the creations. All pastries displayed have a description of the main ingredients -this makes selection easier, for example: chantilly cream, hazelnut, chocolate filling, strawberries etc. Staff is also super friendly & helpful they will assist you when needed.
Tip: Preorder for a special occasion, although they have tons of daily, fresh pastries & cakes. Difference between a cake & a pastry. Pastry is made from flour a little water & butter/shortening oil & sometimes sugar & primarily used to encase savory foods. Sometimes a pastry can stand alone like the “Profiterol” (a croccante hazelnut base with bigné filled with zabaione cream, topped with fine Italian chocolate glaze). A cake is a stand-alone dessert which along with butter/shortening oil & flour also contains a mild raising agents eggs & some form of liquid usually milk cake are usually turned out to cool before being iced, frosted or decorated. Cake is sometimes called a pastry.
Price: Variety of sizes to fit your budget.
