A couple of months ago I told you about the frozen pork crown and other everyday food from high-end department store Neiman Marcus. When I wrote that story I was hoping they would somehow, someway find a way to include few of their gourmet food items in their holiday gift list. That didn’t happen, maybe in the future, if they manage to luxe up few recipes with edible gold leaf and add a few precious stones, they might even qualify for the fantasy gift list.
A few days ago I decided to go back and check their holiday menu – believe me they have a whole bunch of mouthwatering food, including an entire pre-cooked incredible Thanksgiving meal. However, it is the sweets and Christmas cakes section that caught my eye (happens all the time). One of them is a fashionable handbag cheesecake and another is a very Christmassy peppermint ganache cake.
General information – All Christmas cakes are shipped directly from their vendor and include an extra $20 plus for shipping. For cancellations, you have to inform them four days prior to your delivery date.
