Participants in the Downtown Dessert Tour enjoy sweet at Dolce

Milford’s Downtown Dessert Tour, held Saturday, October 14, was a huge success, according to the businesses that participated in the event. Dolce, My Sister’s Fault, Fortunata’s and Rosita’s Bakery welcomed hundreds into their bakeries as people braved the rainy weather.

“How do we even begin?” My Sister’s Fault posted on social media. “The Milford Downtown Dessert Tour turned out unbelievably amazing! We are extremely grateful for everyone that came out despite the rain, the long lines and for patiently waiting to be served. Your support makes this community of bakers stronger! Thanks to our employees for working late hours and giving our customers the service they deserve.”

Lines stretched outside the bakeries as visitors waited to purchase delicious baked goods in order to get their dessert “passport” stamped. Once completed, the passport was entered into a drawing for prizes.

“What a day! The return of the Milford Downtown Dessert Tour on Saturday was amazing,” Dolce commented. “So many people turned out and waited in line. We are truly honored that people visited all four of the shops and shared the love as we try to share with each other every day! Thank you for making our day special and please continue to support the small businesses that make our city of Milford so special.”

Fortunata’s was also excited about the turnout for the event.

“Yesterday’s Downtown Sweets Tour was an amazing experience,” a social media post said. “We thank Angie from My Sister’s Fault for making sure everything was done. The people of Milford understood the assignment:  Have a great day visiting all our bakeries and having a good time. That doesn’t mean we didn’t bake all fresh breads, rolls and a few sweets today. A huge thank you to all the Fortunata employees, Josephine, Leslie, Nick, Valarie, Zach and those that can’t stay away (when I beg them to help, Cassandra and Jodi.”

Rosita’s Bakery, located on North Walnut Street in the former Pavlik’s Sub Shop, also thanked everyone who visited. As the newest bakery in town, they appreciated those who have become loyal customers as well as those who visited for the first time on Saturday. In addition to appreciation from the bakeries, those who participated also enjoyed the event.

“We really enjoyed your donuts,” Kristi Cavanaugh Adams said of the sweets they got from Rosita’s. “They were so good. I’m looking forward to trying more of your baked goods.”

Several people commented that the lines were so long they did not have time to wait, but hoped this would be an annual event.

“Please, please please!” commented Emilie Baglin Crosser in response to My Sister’s Fault’s question about whether people would like to see the event every year. “Make it a yearly event!”

Others suggested making the event more than once a year, possibly quarterly. Others commented that the tour took them longer than expected, but it was completely worth the time.

“I started early, and it only took me an hour,” Rachel Workman said. “I did go back through with my friend and saw longer lines, but the food was worth the wait. Great job and I love the businesses working together.”

The businesses are hoping to make this an annual event and will release more details as the next Downtown Dessert Tour is planned.
