Schmidt's Pastry Cottage

Recently, as part of SassyScoops, I got to fully experience the culinary delights of Schmidt's Pastry Cottage!  I've enjoyed their eclairs (AMAZING) and cakes at weddings (their cakes are offered at most all Salt Lake City reception centers).  My Grandma raves about Schmidt's, talking about them like they invented baked goods.  But, I'd never visited their store and tried all of the other wonderful things Schmidt's has to offer until going with SassyScoops.

Let's just say: my expectations were exceeded and I'll never be able to enjoy a "cheap" cookie/cake again (cheap referring to quality, not cost - Schmidt's prices are crazy-affordable).

Meeting the family behind Schmidt's really gave me a great respect for how their company has maintained integrity with their products.  Everything remains homemade and true to their customer's expectations.  They don't sacrifice the quality of their pastries just to save some time.  Their work is hard, labor-intensive & back-breaking, but they continue to do it because they have a PASSION for creating the best cakes, cookies, pastries and rolls around!  Truly, companies like these are a dime-a-dozen.



My family will definitely be visiting Schmidt's Pastry Cottage in the future, as well as using them for catering.  YUM!
