Edible Art

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.


The Cupcake Shoppe

Ian came home with a pretty white box the other day.  Its contents were small, sweet, and delicious.

The box contained an assortment of beautiful little cupcakes.

I prefer salts to sweets (odd…I know), so in order to recommend a dessert it has to be really good.

These cupcakes were the perfect size.  They weren’t monstrously large with a foot of icing on top.  They were easy to bite into and the icing did not overpower the actual cupcake.  Included in the assortment was the red velvet cupcake, the chocolate cupcake, the lemon cupcake, and lastly the vanilla cupcake.  The red velvet was my favorite.  After scanning their online  menu, we’ll definitely go back to try the cinnamon cupcake and the carrot cupcake.
