Cocoa Bakery

Jersey City
Cocoa Bakery, Jersey City, New Jersey
Warm up with Hot Chocolate
The name alone should be enough to draw clients on a wintry afternoon; once inside Cocoa Bakery, expect thick, frothy cups of whipped hot chocolate. For those who prefer coffee, baristas pull perfect espressos from a shiny La Marzocco machine. Sweet tooths can get satisfaction with one of the many tempting treats made by former Nobu pastry chef Jessica Isaacs. Visitors can actually watch pastries being made in the exhibition-style bakery. Holiday favorites include classics like buche de noel and candy cane shaped cookies, as well as pumpkin-flavored whoopie pies. Photo: macinate/Flickr

Carlo's Bakery

Carlo's Bakery, Hoboken, New Jersey
Learn to Make Cakes Like a Boss
Before he became famous on the TV show "Cake Boss," Buddy Valastro was just another Jersey boy with an Italian bakery, albeit a popular one that dates back more than a century. Since the success of "Cake Boss," however, Buddy has expanded the family business. Besides just selling cakes, Carlo's Bakery now offers cake decorating classes, and visitors can register as drop-in students or sign up for a series of lessons. Fall classes feature seasonally appropriate themes: students learn to make autumn leaf decorations out of fondant and Halloween-themed cakes. Most classes welcome children, too, as long as they're at least 10 years old and accompanied by an adult. Photo: Rexness/Flickr
