Holesome Bites’ Strawberry Buttermilk Cake
By Anna Faller | May 28, 2022
Imagine, if you will, the ultimate pastry-case perfection, packed and waiting on your porch. Drooling already? We don’t blame you. Enter: Holesome Bites in Manistee. Opened in 2021 by pastry chef Kaitlyn Huber and her partner Marc Qualls-Sanchez, this by-delivery bakery is all about modern American sweets and elevated childhood favorites. For the ultimate spoon of sentimentality, the Strawberry Buttermilk Cake is a must. A deliciously adult dessert reminiscent of strawberry shortcake, this treat layers strawberry cake between sweet and juicy berry compote and buttermilk whipped cream for just enough tang. Finished with a sprinkle of white chocolate shavings and—you guessed it!—even more whipped cream, the cake perfectly complements a picnic spread or a quiet evening on your couch. At only $5 per pot, you don’t even have to share. Or, stock up for the week with a full 6-inch ($55) or 8-inch ($65) torte. No judgment here. Order at holesomebites.com, or call (734) 890-0391.
