Extraordinary Desserts Introduces Easy-to-Use Gourmet Cake Kit
Known for thinking outside the box when she creates extraordinary cakes and desserts, pastry chef, restaurateur and author Karen Krasne has assembled a gourmet cake kit that bundles all the items essential to home-baking her sensational Dark Chocolate Truffle Banana Cake inside a stylishly packaged box. Easy to use and perfect for budding bakers as well as more experienced home cooks, the Gourmet Cake Kit makes it a snap to bake an elegant cake that will win raves.
This professional-quality kit is loaded with top-of-the-line ingredients and equipment, including a simple-to-follow recipe, Valrhona chocolate, professional-grade pastry bag and ovenable pan, a stylish doily, imported ribbon with a floral pin, and other fine items. All the home baker needs to supply are small amounts of butter, eggs, bananas, cream and – to add the classic Karen Krasne panache to the cake’s décor – a fresh rose.
The kit was invented in response to endless requests that Extraordinary Desserts ship cakes to all points of the country. Now it can be done, and for the most affordable price of $28.95, this simple yet elegant cake for eight to 10 guests can be prepared with ease and served to applause. The kit can be ordered at Extraordinary Desserts’ online web store and will be shipped immediately or purchased at either Extraordinary Desserts locations.
