2018 Pastry You’ve Never Heard Of

Cake Life Bake Shop’s Nanaimo Bar

Trudeau isn’t the only thing Canada got right: Inspired by Cake Life co-owner Nima Etemadi’s Vancouver roots, this specialty from our neighbors to the north is a chocolatey coconut biscuit on the bottom, vanilla bean custard in the middle, thick ganache on top, and totally delicious throughout.
