The French

A cake for the Francophile, the French fiance, or the couple honeymooning in Paris! This cake is an ode to the first country of fromage.

We’ve selected an optional preserve pairing for each wheel of cheese. Preserves are chosen by the cheesemonger and are made by small production artisan companies.
