Our authentic artisan style bakery proudly offers the finest assortment of fresh baked breads, signature donuts, rolls, pies, cookies and specially sourced fondant cakes. Youâ€™ll also find unique cakes and cupcakes made with an original buttercream recipe that took over a year to perfect. We bake all through the day so there is always something warm from our ovens.
Our Marianoâ€™s original recipe muffins are baked fresh each morning using exquisite ingredients like juicy Maine wild blueberries, Wisconsin cranberries, Freestone peaches from California, and our head bakerâ€™s secret--spicy Korintje cinnamon and banana puree from Ecuador.
Nobody takes celebrating as seriously as we do. Our staff is committed to making your next event uniquely spectacular and each of our original cake and icing recipes are crafted to add their own kind of sweet perfection. Our signature buttercream icing is available in chocolate or vanilla.
Whether itâ€™s joyful spring, majestic fall, Independence Day or a classically creepy Halloween, we have the perfect cakes for every season. Weâ€™re here to make the iconic holidays more iconicâ€”or your own holiday more unique.
Theyâ€™re bigger than your average cupcake. Our moist 5â€ cupcakes are more like hefty cupcakes. We do know they are big enough to share but you probably wonâ€™t want to.
We also have cupcake platters that form beautiful designs when placed together. Also, optionally sharable.
Our artisan ice cream cakes are like a cool, creamy, heaven. With flavors like brownie and cookies & cream, we canâ€™t think of an earthly reason not to stop by our bakery to take a look. Ice cream is always a fantastic idea.
Bella means "beautiful" in Italian, and these Mariano's original creations live up to their name. They come in chocolate, vanilla and red velvet. They're also the only cupcakes frosted with metro icing in your choice of buttercream, chocolate ganache, or cream cheese. Bellissimo.
The same recipe as our Bella cupcakes, only piccolo (tiny). A collection of 12 is great for birthdays, wedding showers, baby showers or people who enjoy smaller doses of la dolce vita.
Bob Mariano hand-selects these fine Sicilian delicacies himself from Palermoâ€™s Italian Bakery. True to the original recipe, we offer favorites such as Pignoli, Lemon Taralle, Pistacchio Amaro, Cherry Anachino, and Buccellati cookies.
Now hereâ€™s something you donâ€™t see every day. Our specialty desserts are an imaginative exploration of frosted goodness. Try our chocolate monsters or baguettes, sourced locally from some of Chicagoâ€™s finest and most creative boutique bakeries.
Our Marianoâ€™s select breads are handmade in the old-world style using only the finest ingredients. All natural. No preservatives. And we never skip a step. Each loaf is fermented 12-18 hours to allow the flavor to slowly develop in our dough.
