The ‘Velvet Tuxedo’ takes the cake

By on February 5, 2024

On Feb. 3, Claire Tillett of Manteo won the two-day Carolina Chocolate Festival in Morehead City for the 2nd consecutive year. Here are additional details from her Claire’s Cakes Facebook post.

We competed in the Pro/Am Bake Off in the Carolina ChocolateFestival and placed 1st in the Pro division category and placed 1st with the most overall points in each judging category.

We entered in our very own “Velvet Tuxedo” cake, white chocolate mousse and bourbon chocolate mousse layered in between French vanilla and chocolate cake covered in a whipped chocolate ganache and topped with marbled chocolate shavings and buttercream swirled borders.

This was also our second time in a row placing first in the annual Pro/Am Bake off! Thank you everyone who came out and supported at the chocolate festival this year and we can’t wait to have the velvet tuxedo cake placed on our menu year-round!!
