Here you’ll find a cake for every ceremony – monumental wedding cakes first and foremost – and every festivity, from Christmas trees to Easter eggs to St Valentine’s Day hearts. And there’s also inevitably a Torta Anniversario to celebrate the upcoming 40th anniversary of this shop, run by Domenico Di Claudio with his wife Giusy and son. The specialities of the house include fancy cakes (in 125 varieties!), the exclusive award-winning puff pastry tart, the classic and ever popular Sachertorte and Torta Zurigo, plus the more recent Caramelia, made of sponge with chocolate, gianduja cream and caramelised pear. Homages to the local area are baci di Carmagnola, craft-produced in six versions, and the new Tavoletta di Carmagnola, a chocolate bar with varying percentage of cacao bearing the logo of the Carmagnola Pepper National Fair stamped in relief. The savoury department – which turns out beignets, canapés and ‘gastronomic’ panettoni – gives of its all during catering services. Closed on Monday.
