If you’re looking for a perfect holiday cake, look no more! Christina Tosi, two-time James Beard Award-winning chef and founder of the Milk Bar bakery shop has created Holiday Popcorn Cookie Cake, a decadent, holiday popcorn tin-inspired cookie cake that launches today for the holiday season. For this occasion she partnered with the Caviar online food platform.
A throwback mashup of Tosi’s holiday memories, the savory and sweet nostalgic holiday cookie cake combines cheddar, caramel and butter, and is garnished with popcorn.
“My mom was an accountant, and we would always get those big popcorn tins at Christmas. That was the big prize.” If you’re not familiar with them, holiday popcorn tins are giant canisters adorned with holiday patterns, subdivided into thirds by a cardboard divider, and overflowing with three distinct flavors of popcorn: cheddar, caramel and butter.
“I loved the spirit of exploration, discovering the cheddar popcorn, then finding magnificence in how toffee caramel can blanket a piece of popcorn that’s still soft and fluffy inside, and, of course, the classic smell of melted butter on popcorn. Combining those flavors in different ways unlocked something for me. The tins felt both opulent and endless in a way that was in the magic of the holidays, and it was never really the holidays without receiving that gift.”
The Holiday Popcorn Cookie Cake will be available until Friday, Jan. 20, exclusively on Caviar, for delivery and pickup at Milk Bar, in West Hollywood. You can also use promo code COOKIEMAGIC for a discount on your cookie cake order (or any Milk Bar order) with $10 off an order of $40 or more, valid through Tuesday, Jan. 31.
