Even if the notion of a piñata cake forged of chocolate and filled with handcrafted treats isn’t enough to pique your interest (not that we can even imagine that), the story of Serenade will capture your heart. Bill Federer was a legendary Viennese chocolatier and Holocaust survivor. He came to the U.S. with nothing and, with the help of Jewish philanthropies, became a legend in Brookline, MA, for his incredible yet affordable chocolate treats. Current shop owner Nur Kilic was mentored by Federer until his death in 2006, and she continues the Viennese tradition of delectable chocolate delights.
The shell of the piñata cake is made from milk or dark chocolate, and you can choose a 6" or 8" size. Then get ready to celebrate by smashing the shell with the included wooden mallet. Carrie Kuempel, who told us about this spectacular treat, tells us the smashed bits are perfect for melting with some cream for fondue.
Prepare for pure chocolate bliss!
