Known for their luxurious icing and moist layer cakes, Cecilia’s creations are made with only the finest specialty ingredients. The cakes are most notably featured at Last Resort Grill, an Athens restaurant staple. One of the most popular flavors is the “Red and Black,”  which pays homage to the Georgia Bulldogs. The cake is alternating layers of red velvet and chocolate cake with cream cheese filling and chocolate icing.

Other unique flavors include red raspberry with layers of tart raspberry preserves and vanilla custard, chocolate mocha cake infused with coffee and rich fudge filling, and the dreamsicle, a vanilla cake with immersed in fresh citrus flavor with both an orange custard and fluffy orange buttercream.

A personal favorite is their tres leches, two layers of moist vanilla cake soaked with their special three milks and layered with whipped cream filling. It is topped with icing and fresh strawberries and absolutely delicious.

They also offer other classic flavors such as coconut, carrot, German chocolate, strawberry, and caramel, just to name a few. A list of all of their flavors with detailed descriptions are shown on their website as well.

Stop by the bakery to arrange a tasting, or simply stop by Last Resort to order a few slices to try. You will not regret it.
