come here often

The sticky buns are incredible!!!!!! Cupcakes..icing over powers cake. Lots of icing. Daughter had cake pop, she said cake was good but icing was very thick. Yeah a kid saying too sweet, which is unusual. A bit more expensive but is a nice treat now and then!

Hershey has lacked a good bakery for decades. Gone were the days of the corner bake shop, counters loaded with cupcakes, cookies and treats. Desserts has brought it back to Hershey thanks to the great folks that own the Hershey Pantry. The cakes are phenomenal as is the Baked Oatmeal in a variety of flavors. The place opens early and...

My most recent stop was before Thanksgiving just to browse. I ended up getting a variety of cupcakes and some whoopie pies. Everything was fresh, appealing and mostly importantly delicious. I highly recommend to locals and others who are passing through.

Got dessert to go from this wonderful shop. Everything was out of this world sweet and delectable. Skip dessert at the restaurant and go here for a wonderful piece of pastry, cake, pie or cupcake. Your sweet tooth will thank you.

Absolutely awesome desserts and a large choice for everyone's taste. Tea and coffee is also great here and the interior is a lovely place to sit in. Real hidden gem. Lemon bar was amazing.

When ordering a birthday cake from a couple thousand miles away, you really have to trust who's doing the work. The people at Desserts Etc are the kind of cake artists who you can sit back and relax--knowing the look and the taste will be top notch.

You can't go wrong with anything at Dessert etc, but get there early as some items sell out very quickly, but fresh coffees and pastry is a great start to your day
