Founded in 2011 by the Council and Benchetler families, Dessert’D Organic Bake Shop has been serving Mammoth Lakes for over a decade. Dessert'D is now operated by Cathleen Calderon and her husband Greg.
It all started with cookies, and the menu grew from there to a full service bake shop that includes cakes, brownies, pies, ice cream, wedding cakes and of course our famous Sweet Cream Pie in a Jar. Dessert'D Organic Bake Shop is known for organic desserts made with the best quality ingredients - the best organic butter, organic cane sugar, organic flour, and more. In addition to traditional desserts, Dessert'D Organic Bake Shop also caters to allergies and specialty diets such as vegan and gluten free.
The mission of Dessert’D is the same now as it was when the doors opened – to serve you the best desserts made with organic ingredients. We have a Dessert for Everyone mindset. And everyone can feel included when you walk into our bake shop.
About Organic & Fair Trade Farming
Eating organic food not only tastes better, but benefits the environment as much as it does your body. Organic farming practices are designed to encourage soil and water conservation and reduce pollution. For example, rather than using chemical weedkillers, organic farmers may conduct sophisticated crop rotations to keep weeds under control. Also, organic farmers don’t spray insecticides to reduce pests. Instead they use beneficial insects and birds, mating disruption or traps to reduce pests. Organic farmers also do not use pesticides on their crops. This makes organic foods free of pesticides and richer in flavor and nutrients. Fair Trade farming helps the environment too. Fair Trade means that farmers have been certified to provide fair wages and safe working conditions. But, it also ensures that farmers obey internationally monitored environmental standards, while providing farmers and farm workers with financial incentives and resources for organic conversion, reforestation, water conservation and environmental education.
Dessert'D is an eco-friendly company in every way that we can be. It starts with our ingredients, only natural and organic. We also support local organic and fair trade farms. Our bakery boxes are produced using 25-30% less trees, and those also come from SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) lumber – lumber collected and reforested utilizing environmentally friendly practices. Everything in the bakery is eco friendly; the oven, bags, cups, spoons, cleaning products and the list goes on. We want you to enjoy delicious cookies that taste good and make you feel good with as little impact on the environment as possible.
