What do you get when you combine an ex-executive pastry chef and a successful graphic designer? Well, if you’re in Brooklyn, the answer is Whimsy & Spice. Here, a creative husband and wife team merged their respective talents to produce decadent artisanal sweets all handmade, hand cut, hand rolled, and hand packaged in Brooklyn. Blending a love for aromatic spices with exceptional ingredients, Whimsy & Spice’s treats are unique, creative, and sometimes unexpected, though almost always mouth-wateringly delicious.

Their distinctive line of sweets include the usual cakes, cookies, cupcakes and tarts, as well as the more curious shortbread biscotti in flavors like honey lavender and cinnamon chocolate malt. Oozing, luscious brownies sandwiched between delightful layers of creamy dulce de leche, and airy, pillow-soft homemade marshmallows in caramel, cardamom, and maple flavors are equally innovative and inspiring. To this tasty batch of treats, add a distinct eye for elegant and clean design, and you’ve got the all around delicious, Whimsy & Spice.
