I don’t often dedicate an entire blog post to endorsing a cake. I mean, cake is cake, right? Except, when that cake is the single most delicious dessert I’ve ever tried, I tend to make an exception.
La Rocca Creative Cakes is honouring thirty years of Canadian celebrations, special moments and craveable indulgences with a uniquely designed, limited edition Greatest Hits Cake. The layered creation will be headlining at participating grocery stores starting on September 30th, 2016.
Last Friday I received the sweetest delivery – a chance to experience the delightful indulgence in advance of its release. The cake, which highlights a melange of La Rocca’s fan-favourites through the years, comes together brilliantly in one layered delicious dessert.
“The essence of tradition is a main ingredient in La Rocca as a company. We have had the opportunity to celebrate our family’s passion for inspired desserts and recipes in Canada by opening our first bakery here thirty years ago”, shares Michael Givens, President of La Rocca. “To honour the story of our beginnings and the many milestones between then and now, we wanted to design a special cake for our thirtieth celebration. The Greatest Hits Cake is a way to recognize our traditions and beginnings while still creating something new and remarkable”.
The drool-worthy track list includes:
Base: Devil’s Food Chocolate Sponge Cake
2nd Layer: White Chocolate Truffle
3rd Layer: Chocolate Covered Almond Meringue
4th Layer: Dark Chocolate Truffle
5th Layer: Red Velvet Sponge Cake
6th Layer: Signature Cream Cheese Icing
Topping: Edible ‘Pearls’ which are the symbol of the 30th Anniversary
(Nice to know: La Rocca sources ingredients such as eggs, flour and cream from local Canadian farms, and its chocolate and toppings from top tier vendors across the globe.)
La Rocca desserts can be found at hundreds of grocery stores, cafés and specialty stores across Canada. Listen, friends, you *need* to try the Greatest Hits Cake. If you have an upcoming occasion or get together – or just because – consider this your “must try” dessert. The cake will be available straight through the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, so stop by your favourite retailer of La Rocca Creative Cakes to reserve one starting on September 30th, 2016.
Once you try the cake, let me know what you think! Tweet me @Listen2Lena and join the celebration online with the #LaRocca30 hashtag. Special thanks to LaRocca for the sweet treat! The Greatest Hits Cake will make a return appearance at our celebrations this fall – and we have many!
