A Trompe l'Oeil “Pie” for Thanksgiving


Pie may be a Thanksgiving tradition, but not everyone likes it. (Hard to believe but true.) So local baker Tessa Lindow of The Frosted Cake Shop came up with a perfect solution: a cake that looks like a pie (cherry or blueberry—your choice). She makes them to order in “fall flavors”—pumpkin spice, apple or mocha spice, with caramel butter cream or cinnamon cream cheese frosting. The cake costs $50 and feeds 10 to 12. Delivery is free within the Sacramento area (downtown, midtown, East Sac, River Park, Land Park and Arden). To order, call (916) 453-1981 or e-mail info@thefrostedcakeshop.com.
