Refined nostalgia is what draws customers to Baked, a pair of rustic-chic bakeries owned by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito in Brooklyn, New York, and Charleston, South Carolina. The duo use pastry-chef techniques and high-quality ingredients in their old-fashioned American desserts, punching up flavors and intensifying textures. For O's big day, they made the Aunt Sassy, a pistachio cake with honey buttercream. "It's absolutely a favorite among customers," says Lewis.
