Layer Cake Flavors

Almond Kiss Layer Cake

Almond Kiss

You absolutely cannot go wrong with this classic. This simple, delicious beauty is filled with Granny Smith apples and warm earthy cinnamon tucked between a double all-butter pie crust.

Banana Cream Layer Cake

Banana Cream Pie

We bake moist vanilla cake on top of a crunchy graham cracker crust (just like a pie!), fill it with banana pudding, and we dollop whipped frosting on to create one of our most popular cakes! Our ode to banana cream pie is topped with slices of dried banana and a dusting of sweet graham cracker.

Carrot Layer Cake

Classic Carrot Cake

Our moist carrot cake is bursting with carrots, toasted walnuts and spices. Silky cream cheese frosting tops this carroty charmer. A gluten-friendly option is available — and both versions are equally delicious.

Chocolate Raspberry Layer Cake

Chocolate Raspberry

Rich chocolate cake is the perfect complement for our house made raspberry jam filling. Creamy raspberry mascarpone frosting drizzled with dark chocolate and finished with fresh raspberries & pansies elevates this beauty to an edible artform.

Chocolate Salted Caramel Layer Cake

Chocolate Salted Caramel

Chocolate, caramel, and salt make a tremendous flavor trio! We fill our fluffy chocolate cake with golden caramel and top it with creamy chocolate buttercream frosting. A touch of French flour de sen adds sparkle and a subtle crunch.

Coconut Cream Layer Cake

Coconut Cream

This tropical dream of a dense coconut cake hides a luscious coconut pastry cream filling. We finish this treat with a swirl of silky cream cheese frosting and sprinkle it with golden toasted coconut.

Cookies and Dreams Layer Cake

Cookies and Dreams

Ask our bakers to choose their favorite chocolate cake on the menu: this is it! Fluffy chocolate cake is topped with a chocolate cookie-studded mascarpone whip. We pour dark chocolate ganache over the whip, and finish with more cookie crumbles — because why wouldn’t you?

El Churro Layer Cake

El Churro

Inspired by the dulce de leche churros of Costa Rica, we created this cake to showcase global flavors. Dense pound cake is layered with nutty dulce de leche. We swirl that drizzle that caramelized goodness onto the buttercream frosting and add a cinnamon sugar dusting.

Hot Fudge Layer Cake

Hot Fudge Sundae

This cake is a happy party of delicious fun. We fill a fluffy chocolate cake with rich, silky ganache and swirl on a small mountain of whipped frosting. Then we top it with a generous pour of dark chocolate ganache, crown it with glazed cherries, and toss on an exuberant handful of playful sprinkles!

Key Lime Layer Cake

Key Lime Pie

Beloved by our customers, this tart, sweet cake is the essence of Key Lime Pie. We start with a crunchy graham cracker crust, fill vanilla cake with the same citrusy tropical key lime filling we use in our TBT pie, and top with a cloud of fresh whipped cream.

Lemon Drop Layer Cake

Lemon Drop

This delicate lemon delight is perfect for baby showers and garden parties. Fragrant vanilla cake is filled with tart lemon curd, swirled with lemon cream cheese frosting, and finished with one perfect edible flower. It’s summertime in a bite.

Mocha Choca Latte Layer Cake

Mocha Choca Latte

Our decadent coffeehouse beauty is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. We gild our fluffy chocolate cake with flavor-packed espresso cream cheese frosting studded with coffee flakes.

Peanut Butter Layer Cake

Peanut Butter Blossom

This is the elegant adult version of a classic flavor combination. We frost rich chocolate cake with smooth peanut butter buttercream, drizzle on a dark chocolate ganache, and finish with crushed peanuts to create a crunchy, creamy grown-up treat.

Red Velvety Layer Cake

Red Velvety

You’ll find classic ingredients in our red velvet cake recipe: vanilla batter with cocoa powder and a dash of white vinegar deliver iconic red velvet flavor. We add silky cream cheese frosting and velvety crumbles for a stunning taste experience.

Strawberry Fields Layer Cake

Strawberry Fields

There’s an iconic song inspiring this strawberry dream of a cake. Our famed vanilla cake is filled with fresh strawberries and topped with a cloud of almond/vanilla buttercream frosting. You’ll hum Strawberry Fields Forever between each bite.

Sweet Jane Layer Cake

Sweet Jane

This is a simple vanilla cake in its perfect state. Moist vanilla cake is elevated with a heavenly hint of almond/vanilla buttercream frosting. Our Sweet Jane is our most popular guest at weddings and children’s birthday parties.

Meet the TBT best-selling cake created for our brand; it’s our homemade take on a classic Hostess Ho Ho. We fill fluffy chocolate cake with fresh whipped cream and dunk that baby in dark chocolate ganache. Hostess Ho Ho, meet your delicious TBT match!

Tres Leches Layer Cake

Tres Leches

We bake memories of Latin delicacies in this delicious favorite. Our vanilla cake is soaked in a mix of milks, topped with whipped frosting, and flaked dark chocolate for Latin flavor in every bite.

Turtle Layer Cake


Our baker Kay came up with this delicious flavor! Irresistibly decadent, our turtle cake layers fluffy chocolate cake with silky caramel and piles on the caramel cream cheese frosting. We finish this beauty with a generous chocolate drizzle and toasted pecans.

White Layer Cake

White Wedding

We elevate crowd-pleasing vanilla cake to a wedding-worthy status with vanilla bean pastry cream filling. Top that heavenly goodness with fluffy almond/vanilla buttercream, and this stunning great will grace the most discerning occasion. This is our Bakery Manager Katie’s ultimate favorite flavor!

How to Serve Your
Layer Cake


We use quality, all-natural ingredients for the most delicious flavor experience. Our bakers make all of our cakes, frostings, and fillings from scratch, fresh to order, and without preservatives. Our cakes must remain refrigerated until you are ready to enjoy them.

  • Remove your cake from the refrigerator 30 (in summer) – 60 (in winter) minutes before serving. You want to give your cake enough time to come to room temperature. (Your cake can sit out for up to 8 hours.)
  • Use a clean, sharp knife to cut your cake.
  • ENJOY!

Remember to refrigerate any leftovers!
