Strawberry Balsamic (Chocolate & Tangy Strawberry)
You’re probably thinking to yourself, the last thing that I would ever want in a frosting is balsamic vinegar, am I right? Surprisingly, our frosting, made from fresh strawberries with a splash of balsamic vinegar swirled on top of our signature chocolate cake filled with basamic cream is simply delightful. Slightly tangy, yet sweet. You may want to think again…

Why is it that Lime always gets last place? In our opinion, Lime & Lemon were created equal - and because Lemon always takes first place, we thought we would give Lime its time to shine! A light lemony cake, just for starters, filled with tangy lime curd, frosted with zesty lime frosting, and finished with candied lemon peel. Come on, it's lime time!
