The Cheez-It brand is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year with a Cheez-It cake created by award-winning chef Stephanie Izard.
The Cheez-Itennial Cake is made with an entire box of Cheez-It crackers, from the ground Cheez-It flour in the batter to the Cheez-It shortbread crumble between each layer. The cake is balanced to salty-sweet perfection with swirls of caramel throughout and chocolate-covered Cheez-It crackers popping out the top.
"To celebrate the 100 percent real-cheese cracker that fans have been enjoying for 100 years, Cheez-It needed an absurdly cheesy way to kick off the celebration,” said Jeff Delonis, senior director of marketing for Cheez-It. “We couldn't think of a better way than to give fans the ultimate cheesy take on birthday cake. Chef Stephanie Izard was the perfect partner to help us bring this absurdly satisfying creation to life, and we can't wait for fans to celebrate by trying the cake for themselves."
The limited-edition Cheez-Itennial Cake will be available online via Goldbelly, an online food marketplace that connects the most iconic regional and local restaurants to consumers around the country. Through May 20, fans can visit Goldbelly to purchase a Cheez-Itennial Cakes. A limited supply will be released each day, and they’re available on a first come-first-serve basis.
"100 years isn't enough time to tell you how much I love Cheez-It crackers," said Chef Stephanie Izard. "My own wedding cake was inspired by Cheez-It, which ultimately led to a variety of Cheez-It menu items at our new bakery, Sugargoat. I can't wait for our fans to try the Cheez-Itennial Cake — it's sweet, tangy, and, of course, cheesy! Trust me, if you're as obsessed with Cheez-It as I am, this one's for you."
