Danielle Keene, the pastry chef at the opening of Wilshire who was seen on Top Chef: Just Desserts, and runs the custom online bakery Bittersweet Treats, will translate her vision of upgrading classic sweets and desserts into her own brick-and-mortar location on December 4. Pasadena Patch spots her arrival on Colorado Blvd. at 10:00 A.M. Keene's made-from-scratch repertoire includes white rose cakes, toffee tarts, seasonal ice cream, basil and lavender truffles, pistachio brittle, peanut butter cupcakes, whoopie pies, black and white and cherry toffee oatmeal cookies. Expect the space to have collection of vintage baking pans on the walls, and Keene to make milkshakes and feature gourmet coffee as additional features.
