5 Eye-Popping, Mouth-Watering,
Must-Try Dessert Trends to Serve up in Your Restaurant this Year
Our restaurant, cafe, and bakery point of sale clients are no strangers to adventurous trends within their own businesses, and their dessert menus are no exception. While October is officially National Dessert Month, April has no shortage of “National” celebratory days in honor of sweet treats.
In the coming month, you can celebrate a multitude of desserts — Chocolate Mousse, Caramel, Raisin Spice Bar, Coffee Cake, Almond Cookie, Cinnamon Crescent, Peach Cobbler, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Chocolate Covered Cashews, Blueberry Pie, and Oatmeal Cookie — all of which of have their own special day. Don’t just stick with the tried and true, though. If you’re looking for some dessert inspiration to serve up in your own restaurant, bakery, or cafe, check out these must-try dessert trends:
1. Fried Dough (need we say more)
In the past few years, donuts have been elevated from a simple breakfast treat to distinguished dessert. Dough takes donuts to the next level with creations that are as stunning as they are tasty, like their infamous and oft-photographed Hibiscus donut.
2. Healthy Alternatives
After eating fried dough, maybe you’re ready for a dessert that sneaks in some veggies. Healthy alternatives are not only becoming more popular, but more easily accessible and delicious. Dirt Candy’s Carrot Meringue Pie hits the spot without the guilt.
3. Adorable Miniatures
Bigger isn’t always better, and with miniature desserts, the proof is in the pudding! We’ve seen everything from miniature donuts to tiny cannoli cups. At Eataly, you can find an assortment of traditional pasticcini (literally, “small pastries”) that are perfect to share.

4. Colorful Confections
Rainbow-colored, whimsical desserts inspired by birthday cake are a huge trend right now. Celebrate your birthday any time of the year at Tavern on the Green with A Slice of Birthday Cake off of the dessert menu.
5. Timeless Classics
Classic desserts will always be en vogue. And what could be more simple and classic New York Cheese cake? Veniero’s has been serving baked goods for 120 years — and that’s a trend that doesn’t seem to be going out of style any time soon. (You can check out how Leebro POS helped Veniero’s take control of their cash flow and increase turnaround time at the pastry counter!)
