‘Tis definitely the season to be jolly! Christmas — the most wonderful time of the year — is certainly just around the corner, along with the nippy temperature, the shopping madness, the endless parties and the horrible traffic. There’s no stopping the most indulgent holiday of all! And the happiest days deserve special cakes. So you want to know, what could possibly be better than cake? I’d say, gelato cake! Ever since Cara Mia opened a few years ago, I have never met a gelato cake there that I didn’t like. This Christmas, allow yourself to be tempted by Cara Mia Gelateria‘s most creative gelato cakes to date — presenting the Rouge and Di Lusso.
With such an arresting beauty, the Rouge gelato cake is a delight to the senses! It has layers of vanilla, strawberry and blueberry gelati on a graham crust, wrapped in a light chiffon cake. Bursting with refreshingly fruity flavors, this cake is truly a work of art!
Isn’t it just stunning in all its bright red glory? This mouth-watering combination of cake and gelato will surely be a hit at office parties and family gatherings! My sister-in-law says she’ll be bringing a whole Rouge cake to our Noche Buena. Ho! Ho! Ho!
For the chocolate lover, Di Lusso comes as a delightful gift this season of merry-making. My initial thought was that Di Lusso would be quite heavy in the belly, but I was mistaken. Not heavy, not at all cloying, just purely divine! This gelato cake is amazingly light, one slice of it is not enough!
Di Lusso, Italian for “luxury”, is aptly named and cleverly thought of, like the work of a real (dessert) genius. With four layers of gelati (vanilla, strawberry, pistachio and chocolate) covered with rich, decadent chocolate ganache, this one has all the makings of a sublime dessert. It’s the perfect special occasion treat!
I felt like I died and went straight to gelato cake heaven! Cara Mia truly knows the way to bring out the merry in Christmas! But while we eat, drink and party during the holidays, just remember the real Reason for the Season. Celebrate God’s love for us and be a blessing to others. Enjoy!
