This Gorgeous Plant Is Actually A Crazy-Layered Cake
Spot Dessert Bar has long been known for its limited-time-only, crazy-colorful desserts, but one remarkably unique item has stayed constant on menus: The Harvest, a layered cake built into a tiny Terracotta planter. Basically, a dessert disguised as a plant.
Chefs begin by layering Oreo crumbles, strawberry jam, chiffon cake, “soft cheesecake” (an emulsified cream cheese mixture), berries, and whipped cream into the little pot. They top it with a sprig of parsley—why not?—and pour some “water” table-side in the form of Earl Grey tea.
