Modern Bite Bakes Up Designer Cakes & Cookies
Modern Bite doesn't occupy a store front in L.A. In fact, it can't be found in any brick and mortar establishment. It's an online bakery, perfect for this modern age.
The brainchild of Daniel Shapiro (baker) and Greg Roth (tastemaker), Modern Bite offers custom cakes, cupcakes, and cookies with design-driven elements.
Take for example their stunning Fondant Cakes. The layers of colored fondant create a visually arresting presentation. And the flavors are completely customizable, ranging from the classic vanilla and chocolate to red velvet, carrot, or salted caramel. Wouldn't these be fabulous at a party?
Let's leave the cakes, and move on to cookies. Modern Bite offers a huge array of tempting choices. My favorite were the Toffee Peanut Pretzel, which combine brown sugar, English toffee, peanuts, and salted pretzels. They prove that salty and sweet really is a match made in heaven.
And if you're looking for a great gift, I love their Gift Boxes filled with buttery shortbread cookies. The boxes are gorgeous (and reusable), and available in several different colors and patterns. I brought a box of these to my book club, and they were a big hit with the girls.
All their baked goods are made with premium ingredients, which explains why they taste so great!
So if you're looking to add flair to your party, send a fabulous gift to a loved one, or just want to chow down yourself, check out Modern Bite's online bakery.
