One of the new delectable desserts is the Chocolate Pecan Pie. This quintessential Thanksgiving treat is reimagined with the addition of bittersweet chocolate baked with pecans on a buttery crust, creating a balanced texture and right the amount of sweetness that you’ll be craving badly after you try it.

Naked Red Velvet

Chef Baba’s Naked Red Velvet Cake will make you fall in love again with the classic scarlet-hued treat with its luscious cream cheese frosting in-between thick layers of red cake. It’s moist, dense, and deliciously made with the goodness of cocoa.

S'mores Tart

The classic s’mores gets a sophisticated upgrade with the S’mores Tart. Made with a Graham cracker crust, rich chocolate custard center, and thick toasted marshmallow icing, this luscious dessert is a certified crowd pleaser.


Apple Pie

Another holiday favorite is the Apple Pie. Chef Baba’s version (and Chef Baba’s husband’s favorite) is an ode to the dessert’s rustic beginnings with its scrumptious filling of cinnamon-spiced apples baked in a flakey golden crust. Serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’ve got yourself a comforting and heartwarming meal ender.


Meline's Chocolate Cake

Chocolate lovers should definitely go for Meline’s Chocolate Cake. A tribute to the late daughter of Chef Baba’s yaya, this decadent cake is filled and iced with generous fudge icing. Since it was launched, it has captured many chocolate cake loyalists in looking for that ultimate chocolate indulgence.


Dulce de Leche

The Dulce de Leche is a certified hit for any occasion. It’s light, fluffy, and gorgeous to look at. It’s the perfect accompaniment for after dinner tea or coffee.






Not satisfied with just cakes, Chef Baba also created a bevy of sweet bites for the holidays with scrumptious selections like Guava Bars, Christmas-themed Sugar Cookies, Mini Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Fudge Walnut Brownie Bars, Mini Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Coco Jam Bars.



Can’t decide on what to give? Classic Confections also offers beautifully-packed gift sets composed of their signature treats.

When it comes to desserts, a classic option never goes out of style, especially when you’re celebrating with your loved ones. So, for any upcoming festive occasion, get you sweet fix at Classic Confections, where desserts are heavenly, merry, and bright.
