Burnt Almond Torte

+ Free Shipping

Prantl’s Bakery has been churning out the goods using traditional German methods, but it’s their slightly more singed creation that has locals obsessed. And the HuffPost. And us. The Huffington Post recently named it “The Best Cake America Has Ever Made,” for two delightful reasons: 1) its layers of the bakery’s special creamy vanilla custard 2) the sheer force of deliciousness that is buttercream combined with candied toasty almonds. It makes even the toughest Steelers fans swoon.

I loved the cake! It is probably in my top 3 cake experiences ever, and it will move up because I’m in love and will need to order more. It was so fluffy and light. The contrast of textures made every bite a perfect bite. I’m having another piece for breakfast tomorrow!

The almond torte was made with the lightest cake. It was such a wonderful taste with the almond crunch. The filling is smooth with just a hint of flavor. This was a perfect dessert for a heavy dinner. We had it after the holiday dinner and as a snack. It was really great. The packaging was well done so the cake box had not been damaged.
Dudley T. - Lewisville, TX
