A Top Hotel's Super-Rich Souvenir

Valrhona Chocolate Cake from The Ritz-Carlton © Julia Heffelfinger

The Ritz-Carlton just introduced this super-fudgy Valrhona chocolate cake, soaked in Grand Marnier and studded with candied orange peel. All 85 Ritz-Carlton gift shops around the world now offer the cake for about $40. It has a seven-day shelf life, so the idea is to take one home to your family without worrying about it spoiling en route. Ritz-Carlton corporate chef Rainer Zinngrebe says it feeds 8 to 10 people, but we found his estimate to be a little conservative: It fed most of our staff!
