Doing Dessert in Tampa, Florida

What is better than a freshly fried donut? Few things in life. The people at the Mini Doughnut Factory [2109 S Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa, FL 33629] agree with this sentiment.

All of their morsels are made on the spot, coming out hot.

They have obscenely delicious flavors, it’s hard to choose. Good thing they have a box of 16 which comes out to one of each flavor. Coincidence or fate? Who cares! We watched the magic happen, wouldn’t it be fun to have a donut decorating party? Apply to work here and it can be your life.

The finished products were amazing. Perfect tasting donuts with flavorful and colorful toppings.

Some of included cereals, campfire, and cotton candy. For the next week we had a game trying to name all 16 flavors…can you say obsessed?

Chocolate Pi [1205 S Howard Ave, Tampa, FL 33606] is an adorable posh little spot that makes some incredible pastries, tucked away in a corner of the city. It may seem like there is no where to park, but if you are in the know there are a few free reserved spots in the hotel garage next door – just tell them where you’re headed. They have a bit of everything and anything you could ever want. Gorgeous cakes, tempting cupcakes, plenty of macaroons, and even bonbons. What to choose? Look no further than their lemon meringue tart. It is one of the best things I have eaten thus far in life – and it looks as good as it tastes!

The buttery crumbly base holds a perfect center of tangy lemon cream – and the whipped toasted meringues are sticky, sweet, and heavenly. PS: Love that mural across the street.
