Sweet Treats for Mom on Mother's Day, or Any Day from La Rocca Creative Cakes


There are a few sayings that I consider "words to live by." Like "If the question is chocolate, the answer is YES." Or "Always sniff the baby's head." I think I have now added a new one - "When cake arrives at 10am, just pour another coffee and dig in."

This little beauty showed up at my door yesterday morning:

La Rocca Creative Cakes - Super Caramel Crunch
Super Caramel Crunch
OMG is the only acceptable response. This is the Super Caramel Crunch from La Rocca Creative Cakes, with two toasted layers of pecan meringue, sandwiched between alternating layers of smooth, buttery caramel and fresh 35% whipped cream. It is as good as it sounds. Billed as "The Original!" this is perhaps their most famous cake. When I think cake, I think flour, and something much denser than this. Comprised of layers of meringue, whipped cream, and caramel, this cake is super light with just the right amount of sweet. I felt like I could have eaten the whole thing. But I didn't. I was kind enough to place it in the fridge to share with my family for a special dessert last night.  It got rave reviews all around.

La Rocca Creative Cakes is a family business, started in Canada in 1987. But the tradition goes back 60 years to the family's bakery beginnings in Naples, Italy. Today they operate from a state-of-the art facility in Richmond Hill, ON, and provide delicious, fresh cakes, cheesecakes, pies and pastries to grocery stores and coffee shops across the country. They pride themselves on using the freshest and tastiest ingredients, including real butter, fresh eggs, whipped cream and rich, European chocolate. Wondering if their desserts are available near you? You can enter your postal code into their Store Search.
