Oprah names Carousel Cakes' Blue Velvet a Favorite Thing
Oprah has announced her list of her Favorite Things for the holidays, and a sweet treat from Nanuet’s Carousel Cakes has made the cut. The bakery’s Holiday Blue Velvet Cake has been designated a pick for 2012.
“Gayle fell hard for this blue velvet cake with cream cheese icing and sugar snowflakes,” Oprah said in an online feature about her Favorite Things. “Just add coffee, milk, or a flute of Champagne."
This isn’t the first time the Nanuet bakery has been recognized by Oprah. In 2007, Carousel’s red velvet cakes received an endorsement from America’s biggest tastemaker when it was featured in O, The Oprah Magazine. The Giants are also a fan: Carousel shipped the famed red velvet to the football team when they were in Indianapolis for the Super Bowl earlier this year.
The cake retails for $42, but can be bought from Carousel Cakes' website for a discounted price of $34 with the coupon code OPRAH (offer valid through Dec. 31).
