We may call it Turkey Day, but I still think dessert is the most important part of a Thanksgiving meal. What’s a turkey dinner without Thanksgiving dessert? A crunchy pecan tart, or warm apple crisp to top it all off is irresistible. 

The kitchen is always bustling on Thanksgiving day, so you might not have the time or space to whip up a dessert course. Luckily, Orlando is saturated with local bakeries that can provide mouth-watering treats for your family and friends to devour after their turkey and stuffing. From homemade pastries to cheesecakes, you’ll definitely want to leave room for dessert. 

These are a few must-try bakeries in Orlando to grab your Thanksgiving desserts.

Light On The Sugar 

Original location: 4270 Aloma Ave Suite 112, Winter Park, FL 32792
New location: 501 Orlando Ave STE 225, Winter Park, FL 32789

Light On The Sugar is my favorite place to stop by after dinner for a quick sweet. This family-owned bakery and coffeehouse is best if you’re looking for a bunch of smaller, individual desserts rather than a whole pie or cake. Their baked goods have an Asian-inspired twist and are always super creative.

These treats will look absolutely adorable in your Thanksgiving spread, from the pumpkin-shaped cream puffs to the turkey macarons. You can even order a Thanksgiving dessert set that includes a variety of cake slices, cream puffs, tarts, and more.
