The Greatest Cake in America

The “Burnt Almond Torte,” a unique and mouthwatering dessert, was conceived by Henry Prantl after a trip to California. There was an almond surplus the year he went, and the Almond Board of California was persuading bakers to use almonds in new and inspiring ways. Henry picked up a few ideas and returned to Pittsburgh where he refined them into our current torte recipe.

Henry Prantl’s Burnt Almond Torte has been named the “Best Cake in America” by the Huffington Post, the “Best of Weddings Cakes” by the Knot in 2018, and the “Best Cake In Pennsylvania” by the Food Network in 2018 and continues to be a Pittsburgh tradition today.

“Best bakery in Pittsburgh!  They have great cakes and cookies and make very festive holiday cakes.  The rasberry filled, heart-shaped cookies are great, as are the chocolate cakes.”
