The Chocolate Swan was a bakery in Elm Grove, located on Watertown Plank Road, between Elm Grove Rd. and Legion. Although a different bakery has taken its place, I still miss the Chocolate Swan, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. So, I was happily surprised to learn that the Chocolate Swan has an online store!
"Mary," the proprietor of the store, was an elegant, friendly lady (I'm sure she still is). My mom, brother, and I were devoted fans of her shop. My mom would often stop in to buy chocolate covered strawberries or our family favorite, the strawberry logcake made with fresh whipped cream. I loved it so much that I had Mary make my wedding cake. (She also made my brother's.) From the looks of her picture gallery on the Chocolate Swan's website, it looks like she still is making delicious and creative desserts.
The shop closed several years ago when the owner decided to move to Las Vegas. I had heard that she opened a store in the Mandalay Bay hotel, but I only recently discovered the website.
It appears that there is a limited number of desserts being offered through the online store. Be sure to read their shipping policy if you decide to order. There is a phone number listed if you want to call the store directly.
The strawberry logcake, unfortunately, is not one of the options. Ahh well, the carrot cake was also pretty darn good, as I recall...
