Cinnamon sticks are another great idea as they can also act as a stirrer.

Pumpkin tends to work best with cream cheese or nuts, but add some fun to desserts by using chocolate, whipped cream, coffee flavors, or oatmeal to create the ultimate sweet fall treat. Apple desserts such as classic apple pies, ciders, and muffins are also extremely popular and are sure to be a hit with customers.


Another flavor that has emerged in fall is cherry! Cherry flavored squares, pies, bread, and coffee cake are all excellent options for fall. Bake and serve cherry loaves with quality loaf pans to give loaves a classic presentation. Cherry flavors work best with coffee, almond, and chocolate to give dishes the added punch they need to become your establishment’s next hit dish.
