Spring 2018

Chocolate Cake with Espresso Buttercream & Ganache

Saturday, May 5; Thursday, May 17; Saturday, May 26

Layers of moist, rich chocolate cake alternate with smooth espresso buttercream and dark chocolate ganache infused with locally roasted coffee beans. Earthy cacao nibs add a nutty texture. An excellent choice for both the chocolate and the coffee connoisseur.

Pistachio, Coconut & Fig Cake

Thursday, May 10; Saturday, May 19; Monday, May 28

Fresh figs burst forth from a delicately balanced pistachio and coconut cake like happy crocuses proclaiming spring. Homemade fig-honey syrup and chopped pistachios give even more texture and dimension. This is a delightful and unexpected cake and a new favorite around here.

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake with Vanilla Buttercream & Lemon Curd

Thursday, May 3; Sunday, May 13; Thursday, May 24

An ideal complement to the season, this elegant cake has a light, seedy texture and a sweet, lemony twang. Comes with an extra jar of our homemade lemon curd (because we know you can't get enough of it).
