Neiman Marcus Cake

Nov 23


There was a time when all my friends were trading around recipes for Neiman Marcus Cake, Mrs Field’s Cookies, Nordstrom’s cake, etc. Of course these all come with the basic story that someone went to the restaurant, liked the dish, asked for the recipe and was sent the recipe with the bill for some outrageous amount of money, and in revenge the person decided to share it with all her friends. My family has that in a very old recipe, called Oscar’s $100 Cake. These types of recipes are often folklore, but are sometimes true.
