Grandma's Italian Cream Cake

“My Grandma Alma, was my beacon – the one person in the family to whom all of us were drawn in good times and in bad. She served this cake for anniversaries, funerals, weddings, baptisms, and especially birthdays. When I was growing up, birthdays in my family were a major event. My mom would cook exactly what we wanted for dinner, and my Grandma Alma, already knowing the answer, would ask us what kind of cake we wanted. We never hesitated. “Grandma, your Italian cream cake!” Off she’d go to make a moist, silky cake, with a frosting so luscious and creamy that you couldn’t keep your fingers away from it no matter how hard you tried." – Cat Cora

Everything. It's an honor to buy a cake by Chef Cat Cora. As part of Culinary Arts, I studied baking and pastry arts at College of DuPage with the likes of Nancy Carey, Michael Washer and another baking lady from Downers Grove, IL I watched her shows on Food Network and ate at a Cat Cora restaurant at an airport. I found goldbelly on Instagram and the shipping and package were State of the Art
