The Cake

Celebrate your next special moment with our delectable signature Ritz-Carlton cake, a chocolate sponge cake rippled with caramel and ganache. Created by The Ritz-Carlton Toronto pastry chef Yusuke Aoki, the layer cake is made with rich Valrhona chocolate and ribbons of caramel and orange ganache. The candied fruit ganache, made with a blend of Grand Marnier liqueur, lends a sophisticated touch of decadence. The liqueur not only adds a distinctive flavor to the cake, it pays homage to hotelier and owner of the Ritz Hotel Paris, Cesar Ritz, who named the liqueur in honor of his friend and the inventor of the drink, Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle. A final layer of chocolate envelopes the cake. From small victories to your next big announcement, The Ritz-Carlton Chocolate Cake’s arrival in a custom box ready for slicing will be the highlight of your celebration.
