Shadyside’s Prantl’s Bakery
got a major shoutout from Huffington Post
writer Julie Thomson this week. She proclaimed their burnt almond torte to be the best cake in America. And as she hails from New York City, that’s saying something.
“To say that the burnt almond torte is light and airy doesn't even begin to describe the texture of this cake,” writes Thomson. “It is beyond
that. This cake is so airy it tastes like the idea of a cake, one that can only be tasted in the best of dreams.”
Except it’s real and you could have it erryday if you wanted because you live in Pittsburgh.
