La Rocca Creative Cakes, manufactured by Canadian bakery La Rocca, is now available at all 1,265 Publix locations spanning the southeastern United States. This is the first time the desserts will be available for direct consumer purchase in Florida.
Publix shoppers may select from three varieties of premium, handcrafted cake: Truffle Royale, Cookie Dough and Chocolate Truffle. The cakes are available in the freezer section adjacent to every Publix bakery.
The cakes are made with fresh, thoughtfully sourced ingredients, and any dairy products used are free from growth hormones or antibiotics, the manufacturer says. Each cake takes more than 24 hours to produce and undergoes a complex process involving skilled pastry techniques, handcrafted details, and delicately prepared layers of premium ingredients.
“Publix recognized that our world-class, artisan cakes would offer its customers something different,” said La Rocca’s president Michael Givens. La Rocca desserts are sold in 6,000 thousand stores across North America and as far away as the Middle East.
“All La Rocca’s Truffle Cakes are all made with 100% whipping cream (heavy) cream and premium chocolates sourced from around the world. La Rocca truly creates its cakes without boundaries or limitations,” said Givens.
La Rocca’s origins date back to 1955 in Naples, Italy. The family brought the La Rocca philosophies to Canada and in 1986, they opened a bakery, aptly named after the family surname, La Rocca.
