Sky-High Pumpkin Crepe Cake with Orange Cream
This centerpiece dessert requires some time and patience, but it’s a beauty: 24 crepes layered with a fluffy orange filling and topped with a pile of candied orange zest. Plus, it makes an awesome post-Thanksgiving breakfast.
Botanica's Gluten-Free Breakfast Cake
This recipe is from Botanica in Los Angeles (botanicarestaurant.com). Opened by two former food writers, this former liquor store is a market and café by day, selling pastries and house-made dips, sauces, and spreads. At night, the lights dim, the market table gets cleared off and set for dinner, and natural wine flows instead of coffee.

In honor of her big birthday on August 25, we wanted to make a cake as awesome as our namesake! We give you the Rach: an Italian extravaganza with layers of chocolate–olive oil cake and cherry and Sicilian pistachio gelato (but ice cream works, too) crowned with a cloud of Luxardo cherry–topped mascarpone whipped cream. It's a heck of a lot of fun, just like the woman herself. Happy (Almost) Birthday, Rach!
Pink-Peppercorn Strawberry Icebox Cake
This is the kind of recipe that requires a little bit of pre-planning, but the result is totally worth it. If you make this after lunch, this creamy-dreamy icebox cake will be ready to eat by the time you're done with dinner!
