Apricot Pistachio Praline Cake

Dandelion Chocolate

As the days begin to stretch longer, bustling summer farmers' markets stacked with the freshest stone fruits are within sight. Our Apricot Pistachio Praline Cake is our way of getting a head start on sunshine season.

We layer chocolatey devil's-food cake with smooth, tangy apricot caramel; and a center layer of silky chocolate pistachio praline buttercream melds beautifully with the bright, juicy taste of apricot. Enrobing the cake's exterior, a delicate buttercream flecked with apricot lekvar (sweet, Hungarian-style fruit butter) harmonizes every flavor, while crushed toasted pistachios and pressed flowers offer an elegant finish.

These cakes are made to order, and require 48-hour advance ordering (for pickup, Monday through Friday).

This six-inch cake serves eight to 10, and is best enjoyed within one week. Please keep refrigerated, and bring to room temperature about 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
