Top 5 Local Places to Get Dessert in Topeka

Did someone say desserts? Think about savoring your taste buds on mouthwatering sugary treats, and you dare not miss Topeka, the hub of local desserts!

Indulge in the world-famous bakeries, coffee shops, and sweet eateries of Topeka; bet you dollars to doughnuts, you will experience a new taste everywhere. From creamy caffeine solutions to eggy tarts, moist hazelnut cake slices, and the heavenly delicious orange leaf frozen yogurt, here is the list of my Top 5 Local Places to Get Dessert in Topeka. Do you have a favorite we missed? Let us know!

Hazel Hill Chocolate

Ruling out the best chocolate scene in Topeka since 2006, Hazel Hill chocolate is known for best chocolate and candied creations made from their freshly homemade chocolates. If you’re in Topeka and you haven’t treated yourself with the heavenly truffles and candy treats at the Hazel Hill chocolate, you haven’t really been there. Ranging from fudge cakes to truffles and caramel apples, the place has the best American taste baked under the layers. Chocolate-covered apples and strawberries are a standout for people living in Topeka as they walk around the town. However, hazelnut, amaretto, and coconut truffle goes nothing less than a caffeine addiction on your nerves.

Shana Cakes

Initially founded to help people with food allergies to have their hands on cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and whatnot, Shana Cake is a local favorite for all in downtown Topeka. It was founded by a mother who was desperate to provide her daughter with the perfect gluten-free desserts and ended up baking a whole wide rack of cupcakes, cakes, cookies, muffins, breads, and unique sweet treats. The top picks include Lemon cake with raspberry filling, Snickerdoodle Cookie Sandwich with Cream Cheese Buttercream, Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese filling, Mini Banana Sweet Bread, and the heavenly Chocoholic cake. The big-fat menu is 100% Gluten, GMO, dairy, nuts, corn, casein, soy, wheat, artificial flavor, artificial color, and preservatives FREE. However, the taste is enjoyable for all sweet tooths, irrespective of the food allergies.
