Burnt almond torte. That is all. It is everything. Your kids can also pick out fun cookies or whatever, but... the torte. Get the torte.

Earlier I had reviewed this bakery based on their products, particularly the almond torte. They are very good. However... We called Prantl's to arrange for a wedding cake for our daughter. We did not receive a call back. We stopped into the shop and left our name and phone number. It took a couple of weeks to hear back. We should have been suspicious but proceeded anyway. We had a tasting appointment at noon on a Saturday. On our way to the bakery at 11:30, we got a call that they had to cancel. This was 2 weeks before the wedding! When we talked to someone that identified themselves as a manger and told them we would go somewhere else because of their lack of professionalism, the response was "no worries". Really?!

My husband and I have started a new tradition since moving to Pittsburgh - we buy a Prantl's Bakery burnt almond cake for each of our birthdays. This has got to be the best anywhere. It's moist, the filling is creamy, the almond coating is just the right thickness - in short, the cake is perfect in every way. It's worth every penny.

The Burnt almond torte is the best cake I have ever had. It is amazing. I wish I had more reasons to celebrate.
