I can’t tell you how bummed I am about our most recent visit to Edible Art. Ian’s parents were coming to visit us to celebrate his birthday so in preparation, we put in an order with the same bakery that did our wedding cake. The wedding cake, by the way, was awesome and left guests raving about it long after the last slice had been devoured. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for Ian’s birthday cake…
I don’t know what happened! Maybe the baker was rushing and not paying attention? The pound cake was undercooked and dense. It was… the kind of rookie mistake I expect when I’m baking. One bite was all I could handle between the sweetness of the amaretto icing and the dense and damp almond cake. I was embarrassed to admit that this was the same place that had done our cake and bummed by how bad it turned out.
Given some of the other bakeries we are discovering around town, I wouldn’t recommend Edible Art now. Maybe it was just a fluke, but I don’t think I’d risk serving bad cake again.
