Our European-inspired fine cookies are hand made from butter, real flavors and local ingredients.  

Our French macarons are made daily and filled with the finest ganaches, fruits and buttercreams; our decorated and photo butter cookies taste even better than they look!

All of our cakes and cupcakes are made from the freshest local ingredients.  

Whether you're stopping in for a cupcake on-the-go or ordering an elaborate wedding cake for 500, our fresh cakes, French-inspired fillings and Italian buttercream icings are sure to give you an experience of pure delight. 

In addition to cakes and cookies we carry a selection of fruit tarts, cream puffs and other pastries, cake pops and micro roasted coffee.

For breakfast, try one of our traditional hand rolled croissants.  They take 4 days to make - but we think they're worth it!  We also make our own delicious granola - full of nuts, oats and roasted goodness.

Great food marks some of the most important moments in our lives.  

Celebration food should be special - and should taste as good as it looks.  We use all-natural ingredients and the best pastry techniques to produce some of the finest decorated baked goods on Boston's North Shore.  We ship our cookies and cake pops all over the United States, and whether you need a cake for a milestone birthday or a full dessert buffet for 250, we come through with deliciousness and good humor!

We have closed our retail shop in Marblehead, however, we are STILL baking delicious treats for corporate and party/catering orders (40 people or more.)  Please call us to discuss your special order!


Behind our name

A cygnet is a baby swan. Do you remember the children's book The Ugly Duckling? Don't' be fooled by appearances, and keep searching until you find that place that is waiting just for you!  Oh, and don't waste your money or calories on pretty-but-bad dessert foods (that last part isn't in the book, but it should be).
