Drumroll please...

Abby: update your blogg
i need to know what you chose!



So here it is! Now, this may not sound like the most exciting choices, but let me tell you, each flavor was absolutely outstanding and mind boggling, but these two were, like, knock your socks off unbelievable.

#1st and 3rd tier: Raspberry Diva: Dark Devils food misted with a Raspberry liquor and then delicate raspberry mousse, fresh raspberries and chocolate ganache.
*It is the best chocolate cake you have ever tasted, with real raspberries, and this amazing fudge with this mouse stuff too. OMG, seriously, this one might come close to 112 eatery's Tres Leche(though still not the same).

#2nd tier: Lemon Raspberry: A enticing blend of dripping lemon curd and fresh raspberries.
*Okay, now this doesn't sound amazing, but it is like the perfect mix of fresh lemon and fresh raspberry, it is so light and yummy and amazing.

so this bakery doesn't use Fondant (the waxy stuff that makes cakes look all pretty and fun...but tastes terrible). They don't use lard, shortening, food coloring or any artificial color or flavor. They use only real eggs, butter, cream, sugar. Therefore, it all tastes unbelievable - not that funny cake aftertaste, no grease, just pure and simple. However, this meant that our design choices were somewhat limited because they will only use the pure ingredients. As you can see on their website they still have some pretty creative designs however, and really - we were in it for the taste, and the quality...

Our cake looks a bit like this, but the layers are square and offset, and the squiggles are more modern rather than traditional. The first layer is white with chocolate ganache designs, the second is white with white polka dots, and the third is white with chocolate ganache again. It is going to be FANTASTIC! (I hope!) Seriously, if you live in Minnesota, you have to visit this bakery and pick something up (but call first to make sure they have stuff). It is mind blowing!

I will have to say the lemon one does not sounds gross at all but amazing. I LOVE LEMON DESSERTS, great choice!! You got something for the chocolate and fruit lovers.
