We're very excited to be debuting our brand new creation right before Father's Day. This cake, what we will be calling our Very Berry Trifle Cake, was inspired by the beautiful summer weather we've been enjoying in the Bay Area. I wanted to create a dessert that would be a good fit at any summer celebration - whether that be this Father's Day, or July 4th, or just any regular weekend BBQ you may be hosting.
It was important for the cake to be "summer-y". When I think of summer, two things immediately come to mind: sweet fruits and the hot sun. Because of the heat, I didn't want the cake to be too heavy or incorporate any whipped cream. Our lighter French Style cakes are a great option for summer time, but I didn't want to have to worry about the cream melting (note: we freshly whip our cream, made with heavy cream and sugar only - so it must be refrigerated!).
I also wanted the cake to be fairly simple. Despite having several layers like a trifle, the cake is undoubtedly simplistic yet full of flavor. All of the components are homemade, made from scratch. The compote (really a fancy word for cooked fruit in a syrup or sauce consistency) is made with real berries, sugar and water - no artificial colors or flavors added. Then we fill the cake with fresh berries of all sorts: strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.
We hope you'll enjoy our newest product as much as we do. Keep in mind that because we do use fresh fruits in the cake, this product will be seasonal only and won't be available year-round. Better take advantage now and order one for Father's Day this weekend! If you do, please be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section below.
Speaking of Father's Day, please join us at Rivermark or Fremont locations for brunch, which will be served until 3pm! Fremont will also be offering $1.99 Mimosas and $1.99 Beers all day Sunday. Hope to see you there!
