SPECIALTY CAKES

 

              The French Connection

These cakes are a category of their own because they are the result of pastry classes I took in France. They are made of several thin layers of different flavors and textures. They are not tall desserts, like their American counterparts, but they are exquisite. Rich in flavor and ingredients, but not overly sweet, these desserts are a delight and go a long way!

Forêt Noire (Black Forest Cake)

Made with raspberries instead of the traditional cherries, this cake is a combination of 3 cake layers, one raspberry layer, and two layers of whip cream mixed with mascarpone cream, one vanilla and one chocolate.  Although rich because of the cream, it remains a light cake! Raspberries add a beautiful tartness. 7 inch - $34 (serves 8)

Palet Lait (Caramel Ganache Cake)

A caramel milk chocolate ganache is sandwiched between two thin sponge cake layers. Coated in dark chocolate, a small wedge of this cake will delight anyone with a sweet craving. 7 inch - $30 (serves 8)

Opéra (Opera Cake)

This classic Opera Cake is made of 2 thin layers of almond cake, also known as a joconde, or sponge cake, each soaked with a coffee syrup. The cake layers alternate with a layer of coffee buttercream and a layer of chocolate ganache. The top layer is a chocolate glaze. In addition to looking beautiful, the cake is rich, flavorful and a delightful taste of France. Gluten-free also available. 

7 inch - $34 (serves 8)

Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake (gluten-free)

From the baker who forgot to add flour to the mix to the overworked sous-chef mistaking the cocoa powder for flour, this sumptuous and rich cake has many legends behind its creation. This French version of the flourless chocolate cake has a dense and almost creamy interior and a decorative powdered sugar topping. Served on its own or dressed up with whipped cream, fresh fruit, or ice cream, the cake is a delight for the eyes and the palate! With ganache, add $4.00.

Amandier (Almond Cake) (gluten-free)

This lovely cake is a variation of an almond-based cake originally invented in the nineteenth century in the French port town of Nantes. Rich and moist, it is topped with a simple glaze drizzle. Serve the cake all on its own or with fresh fruit, a fruit compote, or ice cream. 

St. James Almond Cake (gluten-free, dairy-free)

This cake is a specialty in Spain where it is known as a Tarta de Santiago and named after St. James, the patron saint of Spain, and the beautiful town of Santiago de Compostela where the cake is especially popular. A variation of the French Almond Cake, this cake is equally rich and moist, but with a hint lemon and a dusting of powdered sugar.

Gâteau Breton (Brittany Cake)

From Brittany, France, this classic cake has a soft, buttery texture with a bright raspberry or apricot jam filling baked into its center. This rich and flavorful cake makes for a delightful dessert. Simply cut into wedges and serve.
