If you’ve been watching this season of Unique Sweets, then you’re already familiar with Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, the owners of Brooklyn-based Baked bakery and guest contributors on the show. We caught up with the dynamic dessert duo to get their take on the latest and the greatest in sweets.
You’ve traveled all around the country in the name of sweets. What’s one “trend” you see sticking around?
Matt Lewis: The salted sweet dessert. You’ve seen it evolve into other sweets, like bacon cupcakes. Anything with bacon in it is all about the salt factor. Brown butter is another, though it’s not always done correctly.
Renato Poliafito:And Americans are starting to catch on to using olive oil in their desserts.
