CITYCENTERDC: RareSweets' Thanksgiving Menu

RareSweets’ chef/owner Meredith Tomason will offer a Thanksgiving menu of seasonal cakes and desserts, as well as “bake at home” options for a sweet ending to the holiday meal, or a decadent Thanksgiving morning breakfast. Seasonal layer cakes such as dark chocolate with caramelized pears and caramel drizzle; pumpkin, bourbon and cocoa; and cranberry and vanilla bean make use of the season’s bounty. Guests are able to order ahead for in-store pick up of ready to eat cakes and ice cream, or an assortment of bake at home options such as pull apart cinnamon rolls, biscuits, croissants, bread pudding and crisps.
