Do you have a special someone you really want to WOW? Do you need a delicious dessert for the holidays, ladies day, or birthday and you aren’t a baker? Let Clarkson Ave Crumb Cake company help! I tried their Brooklyn Blackout cake and it was fabulous.

It was so moist and full of the freshest ingredients. You could actually taste the butter and real Belgian chocolate in the cake. Topped with chocolate ganache and then a mountain of plump chocolate crumbs, it is truly a chocolate lovers dream. This rich chocolaty cake is just what those chocolate lovers have been craving!
