Summary

The harmonious flavors of citrus, almonds and vanilla shine in this luscious layer cake, handcrafted at L.A.'s legendary Platine Bakery. It begins with two layers of traditional almond pound cake, enriched with finely ground almonds and aromatic vanilla beans. In between the layers, a homemade lemon mousse filling adds bright, tangy flavors and a light, airy texture. For a decadent finish, the entire cake is covered in fluffy vanilla cream cheese frosting.

  • Cake is 8" diam.; 4" high (serves 15–20).
  • Made in USA.
  • Shipped frozen.
  • A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
Use & Care

Receiving Instructions

  • The cake ships frozen with dry ice, which may have evaporated during shipment. This is normal. Please take care not to touch any remaining dry ice with bare hands.
  • To enjoy the cake at a later date, place the unopened cake in the freezer for up to 1 month. To serve the cake within 24 hours, thaw for 6 to 8 hours at ambient temperature, or 12 to 24 hours in the refrigerator. For best results, remove all packaging and place on a serving platter while the cake is still frozen. To remove the cake from the box, cut down the sides of the box vertically so that the front panel lies flat, and you can slide the cake out of the box easily. Carefully remove the protective plastic wrap.

Preparation

  • The cake is best enjoyed at room temperature. Once thawed, allow the cake to come to room temperature, approximately 4 hours before serving.
  • To slice, run a large knife under hot water and dry with a towel before every slice. Store leftover cake in an airtight container, where it will keep up to 5 days refrigerated. Once completely thawed, we do not recommend refreezing the cake.
