Rainbow Sprinkle Cake - With a fluffy crumb that’s powered by the creaming method and moistness credited to a combination of milk and sour cream, the rainbow polka-dotted cake layers are buttery and tender yet study enough to suspend the sprinkles throughout.
Matcha Loaf Cake - This matcha cake is a bit denser than a layer cake yet still moist and extremely flavourful. It's the kind of cake best served with a cup of tea or coffee to get you through the lull of the afternoon. Top it with luscious coconut frosting and a dusting of matcha powder.
Matcha Chocolate Layer Cake - This four-layer cake has alternating layers of chocolate and matcha cake that are sandwiched together with creamy matcha ganache with Swiss meringue buttercream.
Pistachio Cake - Celebrate spring with layers of fluffy pistachio cake, apricot jam, and salted white chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream. You will love the nutty, tender cake layers as much as the dainty flower design.
Chocolate Stout and Irish Cream Cake - This cozy cake has it all: moist chocolate cake, robust chocolate and stout flavor, smooth and sweet Irish cream frosting. Add a bit of cocoa to the frosting to make the ombre finish
Caramel Chocolate Stout Cake - This cake is like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It is covered is caramel frosting and a crown of caramel popcorn.
