Today, Montilio’s is still making John F. Kennedy’s beloved wedding cake the “old-fashioned way, by hand, using only simple ingredients. Many of these recipes haven’t changed in more than 70 years, and you can taste the decades of tradition in every bite,” the company explains, via Goldbelly. However, instead of a full-blown wedding cake, the one you order is a scrumptious blend of raspberry and buttercream packed into three layers of a seven-inch cake.
When you order it from Goldbelly, it comes with a description of its sweet history and is preserved with dry ice. Store it in the fridge, and it will keep for a week; when it’s kept in the freezer, you can enjoy a few rich bites here and there all year long. It serves eight people, so it’s the perfect cake if you’re looking to celebrate something small and special while tasting something exceptional.
The best part is that, unlike other gourmet confections you might have tried in the past, this one isn’t overly sweet. Once you take your first bite and let your taste buds witness the expertly balanced fluffy texture, the smooth buttercream recipe, and the tangy punch of the raspberry jam, you’ll see just why Montilio’s cakes are so sought-after.
