Baum Cake (Baumkuchen) Made Fresh at Glaze in Denver, Colorado

Everything is just usually better served fresh. Baum cake (baumkuchen) is one of them. The only time I really get to eat them (and not the supermarket or convenience store kind) is when I visit Japan. Not anymore, thanks to Glaze Baum Cakes out in Denver. They have the machinery (straight from Japan), they have the ingredients (also straight from Japan), and they have the love and passion to deliver the best quality (straight from the heart).

What’s different about the baum cakes at Glaze is that they not only have the usual Japanese flavors like matcha but also new, inventive western fusions that you won’t find in Japan. Flavors like ginger clove orangecello, or orange fennel brings new excitement to the plate.

I prefer their mount baum cakes because I’m not too fond of glaze on my cake and I like the mount baum cake’s mix of moistness and denseness.

If Denver is too far for you, you can order cakes online at glazebaumcakes.com or, if you’re lucky, you might be near one of their retail locations. (Whole Foods Castro location in SF carries them.)
