Prantl’s offering free Burnt Almond Torte for a year

Chris Pastrick
Prantl’s famous Baked Almond Torte cake

Get ready for two phrases that taste great together: “Free year’s supply of” and “Prantl’s Burnt Almond Torte.”

In celebration of National Almond Day, the famed Pittsburgh-based bakery is offering patrons a shot at the sweet prize.

That’s right, the very same cake that Food Network named best cake in Pennsylvania.

The offer, good only at the Shadyside location — 5525 Walnut St., involves a large jar of almonds. Patrons can take a shot at guessing how many almonds are in the jar. If anyone should come within 10 almonds of the exact amount, they’ll get a free Burnt Almond Torte cake every month for one year. If no one comes within the 10 spot, no one will win.

What happens if more than one person comes with 10 almonds has yet to be determined, although we figure that’s pretty unlikely.

All guesses must be made at the Shadyside bakery from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
