lucettegrace serves up delicious delights and confections all year long, but the holiday season is truly their time to shine. Feast your eyes on the classiest Christmas cake in Raleigh—the Red Velvet Buche de Noel. Red velvet cake gets rolled up with cream cheese frosting and raspberry jam, before getting buried in layers of cheesecake mousse, more cake and a glaze so glossy, you can practically see yourself in it. It's festive AF.
Show up with one of these bad boys and win your next holiday party. If red velevet isn't your jam, lucettegrace also serves up two other flavors that are equally impressive.

You know the acclaimed cocktail maker, Shannon Healy, isn't going to whip up a basic boozy bev. This holiday season, make sure to get your hands on the Persimmon Pudding Hot Toddy, a drink that takes just three days to make. Filled with all the feel-good spices—think cinnamon and nutmeg—ginger syrup, plenty of persimmons, navy strength gin (aka super strength), scalded buttermilk and topped with fresh whipped cream and nutmeg—this cocktail is definitely a labor of love.
