Local spotlight: Vita Dolce

Cakes, Favors & Gifts, Michigan

Michigan brides, if you're on the hunt for locally-made sweets to offer guests as favors or include in a dessert buffet, be sure to check out Vita Dolce. The gorgeous chocolate truffles, toffees, and mints are handmade in small batches right in Grand Rapids by two childhood friends, Jessica and Dana. Jessica grew up sampling her mother's handmade sweets and after a few years of taste-testing (all in the name of "work," right?), the duo began working on their own line of confections. Vita Dolce's (Italian for "the sweet life) two-piece chocolate boxes would make especially great wedding favors—you can choose from nine different truffle flavors, like amaretto and espresso; each box costs $4, and comes wrapped in a ribbon in the color of your choice. —Heather Lee, Editor, Brides Michigan
