Sweet Potato

Seasonal desserts are things to be cherished because they’re here one day and gone the next.

Cakes

In Winter, we promote white chocolate like what’s found in our White Bunny, a winterized version of our carrot cake with white chocolate buttercream, and a beautiful White Chocolate Coconut creation. Fall is all about the warm spices like those found in our Sweet Potato Cakes, Carrot Cakes, etc. Also, seasonal varieties of regular cakes like our Christmas Booze cake made with red and green cherries for festive enjoyment and our Holiday Celebration Red Velvet Cake.

Also, seasonal cheesecakes can be found on our menu. Red Velvet Cheesecake is only available in the winter. Limoncello cheesecake is only available in the Spring and Summer. Look at our specials to find some wonderful seasonal Pedestal favorites.

Sweet potato is definitely one of our favorite seasonal ingredients around here.

Of course, we sprinkle on raw turbinado sugar to add some texture and sparkle. Yes, we know it’s a bit non-traditional but we promise you won’t miss the pie.

Classic Red Velvet $35
Our traditional offering of Red Velvet Cake is our homage to those that came before us. This 3-layer red creation starts with our house recipe red velvet cake, of course. Each bite has the perfect kiss of cocoa to tease your palette and set your taste buds on a wonderful journey through this buttermilk cake adventure. We whip up a batch of our tangy cream cheese frosting to put inside and out to keep them classic. Steeped in tradition and flavor, this combination is definitely a crowd favorite.

Addiction kicks in after the third bite.

ABO Red Velvet $40
Only a few of our creations get classified as ABO or Anything But Ordinary. This best seller, our house version of Red Velvet Cake, is a crave worthy 4-layer creation. It starts with our house recipe Red Velvet, buttermilk cake with the perfect kiss of cocoa, and we make it extra special by moistening each layer with a coffee-liqueur to accentuate the wonderful edge of this dessert and amp up the excitement of each bite. Finally, we cover the whole thing with our signature Mascarpone Cream Cheese Frosting, an extra smooth, velvety, less sweet delight for a change from the ordinary. Your eyes will roll to the back of your head by the third bite. This is not yo’ mamma’s Red Velvet Cake. No disrespect to mamma. We are sure hers is good but you might be sneaking out later to get some of ours.

Red Velvet Cheer $40
Red Velvet is one of our great celebration cakes. Champagne is the great celebration beverage. We’ve brought the two together to give you another reason to celebrate. Our house version of Red Velvet Cake is crave worthy on its own as is out champagne custard but together they are orgasmic. Our house recipe Red Velvet is a buttermilk cake with a gentle kiss of cocoa that pairs perfectly with the champagne in the custard and buttercream frosting. This twist will take you to somewhere beautiful and tasty. The only challenge is resisting the urge to toast this chocolate and champagne delicacy.

Coconut Swirl Cake $35
Our version of a Coconut Cream Cheese Cake has been renamed because after covering the whole thing in our sensational coconut cream cheese frosting, we adorn each cake with a decorative swirl on top. Inside, this 3-layer delicacy starts with three tender and moist coconut cakes that we amp up the coconut flavor by filling with our coconut cream cheese frosting that has been whipped up extra special, light and fluffy to make it more sinful, more delicious, more decadent and more coconut-y. Finally, we dress it up with classic grated coconut to keep it familiar.

ABO Carrot Cake $35
A best seller, our Carrot Cake will have you rethinking every other carrot cake you have enjoyed. Our baker gives this American favorite some special love and tender care because this 3-layer cake is Anything But Ordinary (ABO) with our signature brown butter cream cheese frosting. Carrots, walnuts, golden raisins and all that extra love that is thrown into this classic spice cake comes through in each bite to make it slap your mama good! Oh no. “You gonna forget she sitting at the table” good. Guaranteed crowd-pleaser, this little piece of heaven classifies as food porn.

Christmas Booze Cake $45
Our own seasonal version of the Alabama Lane Cake brings Christmas color and flavor to this Southern classic. We bring out seasonal flavor with layers of nutmeg-kissed vanilla cake filled with bourbon custard, pineapple, cherries, pecans, coconut and a hint of chocolate. Stack them four layers high and cover it in our white chocolate bourbon buttercream. After a few bites, things will begin to look and taste a lot like Christmas.

Champagne Cheer Cake $35
Nothing says celebration like Champagne. Our luscious version of Champagne Cake is absolutely divine. It starts with three layers of perfectly flavored champagne cake filled with our unctuous and velvety champagne custard. If that isn’t enough champagne for you, we top our creation with a delicate and heavenly champagne custard-infused whipped frosting. To finish, we dress it with decorative dragees to symbolize the bubbles.

Cupcakes

Similar to our cakes, seasonal cupcakes are abound on our menu. Órale Santa, introduced last Christmas, is one of our Christmas favorites designed like a holiday cocktail spiked with vodka, schnapps, tequila and the flavors of cinnamon and blueberry. Booze is abound with many of Pedestal seasonal flavors like Coquito, the quintessential Puerto Rican Christmas beverage, and RedRum RedRum, our red velvet cake spiked with coconut rum for the holidays.

Sweet Potato Brown Cupcakes $33 (minis pictured above)
One of our favorite seasonal ingredients is definitely sweet potato. We blend it into an incredibly flavorful and moist cupcake with nice warm fall spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. This little treat will remind you of how delicious fall and winter can be, especially, after we pair it with our smoky brown sugar cream cheese frosting. This combination is perfect with the earthy sweetness of the sweet potato and the smoky warm molasses flavor from the brown sugar. And, the cream cheese in the frosting adds some mellow creaminess to the whole delicious package bite after bite. Simple in its beauty because it provides a depth and warmth that reminds us of home and family. Of course, we sprinkle on a little raw turbinado sugar to add some texture and sparkle. Yes, we know it’s a bit non-traditional but we promise you won’t miss the pie or the crust.

If you were fortunate enough to grow up around snow, this version of a Coconut Cream Cheese Cupcake will remind you of the snowball fights you had as a kid. Moist and tender coconut cake is covered in our special whipped vanilla almond cream cheese frosting that is so light and fluffy for an extra special soft and creamy coconut experience. Cover it all in flaky coconut and you will see snow or rather snowballs, edible snowballs. Of course, there aren’t coconuts in the snow but hey, we said memory of childhood because these flavors are all about now.

Órale Santa Cupcakes $35 (minis pictured above)
Tequila makes almost everything better and this cupcake is a testament to that fact. Santa travels all around the world in a night. That means he goes to exotic locations and a variety of homes. Imagine on one of his last stops there is a cupcake left in place of cookies to wind down his night. Winter fruit… blueberry. Clean alcohol… vodka. Warm memories… cinnamon. Help getting it down… tequila. Together, you have winter, warmth and memories of Christmas past all rolled into each bite. Inspired by the one man who deserves a drink at the end of the night, the blueberry vodka cupcake is a wonderful delivery device for the warm cinnamon spice that compliments it so well. And, bursts of tequila and blueberry will allow you to welcome the merriment of the season and everything will be Órale with you and Santa.

Champagne Cheer Cupcakes $33
Champagne is synonymous with celebration and cheer. Our luscious cupcake version of a Champagne Cake is one of our most delicate but sinful creations. It is absolutely divine from the moist, tender, delicate champagne cake with its gentle sweetness to its velvety luscious champagne custard filling bubbling with flavor and, finally, to its delightful champagne custard-infused whipped frosting. This cupcake is smooth, creamy, lavish and exquisite dressed in silver and gold baubles. It goes down like the smoothest bubbly you have ever consumed. Time for a toast. Cheers!
