The platform comes as a way to support small food business owners and independent dessert chefs who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The digital market allows for these suppliers to offer their products online and deliver directly to customers, no physical presence required.
The dessert marketplace also provides the unique opportunity for consumers to work with their favorite chef on customary creations based on dietary preferences such as vegan, low-carb, and gluten-free. Sweets like cupcakes, sugar cookies, popsicles, donuts, cakes, and French macarons are available, with more categories to be added soon.
In addition to the new online sweet shop, Planet Bake is creating a dessert community in New York City, which will hold quarterly tastings to help the various brands featured on the site drive awareness to their craft and talent. This feature will eventually be extended to other parts of the country, so stay tuned!
