An exclusive look at Calgary’s prettiest desserts
If there’s one thing we know a thing or two about, it’s sweet treats and baked goods. We’d be lying if we said we didn’t end up with a toothache more often than not throughout our lives, and you know what? It’s been worth it every time. Whether you’re more into a decadent chocolate flavour profile, something fruitier like a strawberry macaron, lemon tarts, or an order of fluffy meringues, Finesse Desserts has something for everyone.
With a European background, Inga bakes all of these tasty treats from scratch, in-house every single day. This means no pre-mixes, no additives, and no powders. So yeah, we’re talking to all of you who like to know exactly where the ingredients in your foods come from. Finesse has managed to grab our full attention, and it’s clear they take their recipes very seriously.
By using some of the best ingredients that the folks in the pastry world can imagine, like Valrhona chocolate, real nuts, real cream, and real butter, you know these desserts are no joke.
The proof is in the pudding (we’d love to use the word “custard” as much a more desert-forward term, but that just isn’t how the saying goes, now is it?) that practice makes perfect. By trying out their recipes multiple times, cutting down the sugar wherever they could, and achieving the best flavor profiles possible, a lot of work went into the opening of this bakery earlier in April, and it’s a spot strongly encourage you all to try out.
When it comes to this classic European style of baking, and offering quality in all angles, Finesse Desserts is about as legit as they get, Calgs.
Did you think we were finished? ‘Cause we aren’t. The interior is just as beautiful as the pastries and cakes alike. Although you can’t grab a seat and stay a while, you’re definitely going to appreciate the details like the full flower wall while you’re picking up your order, grabbing some treats last minute, or getting yourself a tasty latte to go. There’s also no judgment if you snap a few Instagram photos while you’re there. We know we did.
If you’re giving a cake as a gift, feel good about your choice. It’s not only beautiful, but it’s delicious as well. And you know your special someone wouldn’t want just any average tasting cake.
So keep in mind that Finesse is always down to help create sweet memories for their clients, regardless of the occasion! Were talkin’ baking a special cake for weddings, birthdays, or anniversaries. Or anything from their full window array, complete with tarts, macarons, cookies, and every other sweet treat you could imagine.
