More than a century ago, baker Gus Isgro established Isgro Pastries in the Italian Market, a take-a-number spot whose unmistakably buttery aroma wafts down Christian Street.
Customers swear by the pound cake, Italian cream and strawberry shortcakes, but filled-to-order cannoli are Isgro’s top sellers.
Their customized, decorated cakes run the gamut from traditional to Victorian.
His staff can make bows and ribbons or anything the customer can dream up for their big day, whether it’s a birthday or wedding.
The most important factors, according to Isgro Pastries, are the cake’s attractiveness and the taste.
For a special occasion, the staff make items that are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious to eat.
If you are looking for something a bit more exotic, Isgro Pastries can even work with fresh fruit and flowers as edible decorations.
