The Dish with Dee Dee: Life is Short, Eat Dessert First!
Growing up, you're taught you eat dinner first, then you get dessert.
At Incredibly Delicious Bakery and Café, they don't play by the rules.
And you won't want to either after you get a taste of their specialty cakes, pastries, breads, and other handmade items.
"I don’t know if I could do it blindfolded, but I probably could," says Melanie Dineen as she whips up a caramel apple spice cake in five minutes.
This cake queen is known for her decadent confections, infused with rare ingredients like passion fruit.
"It's my favorite ingredient to work with. It's got a really sharp flavor, but it really pops, too.”
The Springfield eatery is known for their quiches, soups and sandwiches, and of course, their flourless chocolate cake.
"It’s something my brother learned how to do in culinary school," Melanie recalls.
After living in New York and France, he introduced the cake to Springfield.
"It kind of started with one dessert that kind of became this industry that we have now.”
The eatery is located inside the Howard K. Weber House, which can be found on the National Register of Historic Places.
Stop by for an experience as delicious as it sounds.
"Life is short, eat dessert first!"
Incredibly Delicious is located at 925 S. 7th Street in Springfield.
