La Farine’s cakes are adventures in decadence. They pair classic techniques with exceptional ingredients to make cakes that appeal to the broadest and most discriminating tastes. All are designed with balance and texture in mind so that each bite is a total experience.
In keeping with tradition, our cakes are round and range in size from 6″ round to 18″ round, feeding from 6 to 60 people. Each is beautifully decorated and, depending on your needs, can be custom designed for your special occasion. And for holidays, we feature special cakes to celebrate the occasion…from our Gateau du Printemps (Coconut/Lime Mousse Cake) for Easter to our classic Buche de Noel (Yule log) for Christmas.
Whether you crave chocolate, fancy marzipan, or are nuts for nuts, there’s a La Farine cake for you. So peruse the menu and, if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by the bakery for a slice of cake and conversation at our family table.
