Poetry would be entirely composed of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write.
$20 for an Almond French Cream Cake with Four Layers ($45 Value)
Toasted sugar almonds separate four moist layers of cake slathered in a rich icing that combines almond, butter, and rum flavors. The confection feeds groups of 10–12.
Orders from around the world inundate chefs at Frances' Bakery, who bake their fresh goods daily from recipes that have delighted taste buds and kept lonely recipe cards company for almost a century. The shop's rich custom espresso drinks pair with freshly filled cannolis, dainty chocolate éclairs, and sugar-free desserts. Thick Sicilian-style focaccia bread, topped with a blend of spinach, artichoke hearts, and tomatoes, adds a unique spin to the pizza concept, and traditional New Orleans muffuletta piles layers of baked ham, salami, cheese and olives upon a hefty round of italian bread.
