Some of you devoted subscribers may remember this cake from last year; it was definitely one of the most popular cakes. If you haven't had it, it's sort of like a pumpkin cake for carrot cake lovers. Roasted kabocha and warm spices are folded into a soft cake with a crunchy, spicy ginger streusel layer and topped with a creamy whipped cream cheese frosting. A dusting of pepita and orange candy brittle encircles the edges to ensure everyone gets a little beauty+crunch in their slice. It's a true fall cake and perfect to share for your festivities. I'll have cakes ready for pick-up at my Bartavelle pop-up with Steep Tea Co. on November 13th from 1-3 pm. Steep will have their delicious chai and I'll have kabocha cake slices available (until sold out) if you can't subscribe to a whole cake this month.
Cakes are 6" and $30. I can take cash, check, paypal, or card upon pick-up.
Email me to reserve your cake.
