La Rocca Celebrates Thirty Chart-Topping Years of Delicious Desserts with Limited Edition Greatest Hits Cake

The Canadian Bakery Launches Hand-Crafted, Layered Creation Featuring Best-Selling Cakes from the Past Thirty Years

RICHMOND HILL, ON, Oct. 3, 2016 /CNW/ - La Rocca Creative Cakes is honouring thirty years of Canadian celebrations, special moments and craveable indulgences with a uniquely designed, limited edition Greatest Hits Cake. The layered creation launched at participating grocery stores on September 30th, 2016.

Upon making its Canadian debut in 1986, La Rocca quickly established a dedicated dessert- loving fan base. Word was fast to spread about the unique and tempting hybrid of classic Italian and North American creations. Three delicious decades later, La Rocca is proud to be recognized as Canada's largest private and best-selling cake bakery.

Brothers Michael and Martin Givens, are commemorating thirty years of making Canadian celebrations remarkable with a carefully created Greatest Hits Cake, highlighting La Rocca's fan-favourites in one layered delicious dessert.

Those familiar with La Rocca's classic hits from the past three decades will delight in the commemorative compilation and its ultimate tastes of sweet nostalgia, with decadent sponge cake hand-layered between the bakery's famous white and dark chocolate truffles. Subtle tracks of almond meringue and an encore of cream cheese icing make The Greatest Hits Cake a sensory masterpiece. The grand finale is a topping of vanilla-flavoured 'edible pearls', an elegant gift to thirty years of loyal cake aficionados.

"The essence of tradition is a main ingredient in La Rocca as a company. We have had the opportunity to celebrate our family's passion for inspired desserts and recipes in Canada by opening our first bakery here thirty years ago", shares Michael Givens, President of La Rocca. "To honour the story of our beginnings and the many milestones between then and now, we wanted to design a special cake for our thirtieth celebration. The Greatest Hits Cake is a way to recognize our traditions and beginnings while still creating something new and remarkable".

Staying in tune with its 'better-baking' roots, La Rocca sources ingredients such as eggs, flour and cream from local Canadian farms, and its chocolate and toppings from top tier vendors across the globe. Additionally, all of La Rocca's cakes are baked and decorated in small batches to ensure each dessert that leaves the bakery is top quality.                  

The Greatest Hits Cake was designed to be open-sided to showcase the colours and textures of La Rocca's classics and brings the perfect tune for turning up celebrations, amping up gatherings, or keeping it classic and will be available through the Christmas 2016 holiday season.

La Rocca desserts can be found at hundreds of grocery stores, cafés and specialty stores across Canada. Canadians are also invited to join the celebration online with the #LaRocca30 hashtag.
