Like delicious food art, beautiful cakes grace the shelves of this Bethesda bakery. Pastry Design has become a regular stop for those celebrating special occasions with sweet tributes. Its popular chocolate truffle rests at the top of the menu with its dark chocolate mousse, layers of chocolate génoise and a touch of raspberry preserve. A larger version serving 10-12 is covered with poured chocolate. For only $1 you can personalize a greeting on a marzipan plaque. Many shoppers swear the French apple tart is the best anywhere in the Washington area-here the bakers use their own apple compote under the sliced apples. Not always the friendliest staff, but who cares when the work is so deliciously sweet.
