Summer Menu 2018

Almond Cake with Apricot Cognac Sauce

Thursday, July 5; Saturday, July 14; Thursday, July 26

Our almond cake has a delicate, nutty texture and flavor, augmented by a luscious apricot sauce kissed with Cognac and finished with a smooth vanilla buttercream. This is an elegant dessert that’s high on Elizabeth’s “Favorites” list.

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake with Vanilla Bean Buttercream & Lemon Curd

Saturday, July 7; Thursday, July 19; Saturday, July 28

An ideal complement to the season, this distinguished 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).

Chocolate Chile Cake with Spicy Ganache

Thursday, July 12, Saturday, July 21; Thursday, August 2

Chocolate with a kick: chile powder and a touch of cinnamon add a fiery zip to this chocolate cake, enrobed with a rich anaheim & ancho pepper infused ganache. Serve it with tequila and pretend you’re in Oaxaca.
