Why you should eat this marble cake at Helfer's Pastries now
The marble cake with fudge frosting from Helfer’s Pastries & Deli Cafe is a nostalgia trip to simpler times. The chocolate and vanilla zebra-striped cake has a light, soft crumb and delivers that best-of-both-worlds flavor, topped with an entirely unfussy, dense, sweet fudge frosting. It’s not avant-garde baking, but it will remind you how good a sheet cake can be.
