Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates this season of hot cocoa with marshmallows and trees adorned with sparkly red and gold! Christmas reminds me of steaming cups of lattes consumed under cozy knitted blankets, coffeeshop conversations with friends while observing the flurry of snowflakes swirling against clouded glass windows, sweetness combined with spice. I set out to make a box of cakes that embody the christmas experience for the ultimate edible thank-you-for-tolerating-me-this-year gift. Details below:
brown sugar almond pear cake
made with pears poached in a lemon, ginger and cinnamon syrup.
spiced chocolate orange pound cake
with Valrhona Caraibe 66% dark chocolate ganache, candied orange peel.
mixed berries butter cake
with cinnamon streusel.
Limited quantities available.
