Favorite Holiday Traditions Go Big and Bold in 2008: Turkey Truffles and The Swiss Colony's Largest Cake Ever Help Kick Off America's Official Holiday Season

Snowman Cake - The Largest Swiss Colony Cake Ever

Every year millions of Americans receive notice that the holiday season has arrived, but they don't hear it in the news or from their gossiping next-door neighbor. They get the news from a more traditional source: the arrival of The Swiss Colony's holiday catalog by mail, an American tradition that gets better--and bigger--each year thanks to The Swiss Colony's loyal customers.

The Swiss Colony's newest holiday delectables unite holiday traditions with unexpected surprises that are certain to create treasured memories. With over 50 years spent perfecting their seasonal treats in The Swiss Colony bakery, the new 2008 products include some of the most adventurous and scrumptious creations yet. Fans of Thanksgiving should gobble up the new Turkey Truffles, a playful addition to any Thanksgiving table. Towering over the table, The Swiss Colony's Snowman Cake--the largest cake ever sold by The Swiss Colony--serves up to 50 hungry guests. Unlike good old Frosty, it takes much more than snowballs and an old silk hat to bring the magical taste of this snowman to life--it takes more than 20 people to make each one!
