cake couture

Been wanting to share Cake Couture with my friend Wen for some time now, so we headed out and tried them.

Our crazy plan was to halve what we bought and share.

Wen chose Chocolate, Key Lime & Coconut and Peanut Butter.

I chose Rocky Road, Orange Creamsicle and Chocolate Cherry.

We loved Key Lime & Coconut. The white cake was very moist, the lime was very subtle and there was lots of shredded coconut on top.

Orange Creamsicle...meh, the frosting was hard, so was the cake and only a little orange flavor.

Chocolate, Rocky Road, Chocolate Cherry & Peanut Butter had all the same chocolate bottoms, which were surprisingly disappointing, dry and flavorless...boo!

On the upside, we did enjoy the chocolate cherry frosting with a punch of cherry flavor and bits of cherry and the peanut butter frosting which was like eating whipped peanut butter.

Major sugar rush, lots of water, some disappointment but all in all good times and moral of the story...don't let your eyes be bigger than your sugar tolerance level, just choose 4 (max! or less) to share!

Yep, the Coconut & Lime is my all-time favorite their. Try the PB & J sometime--white cake with the PB frosting and a bit of jelly--I think it beats the chocolate PB one. ;-)

K and S said...

Will try their PB&J the next time I'm around there Debinhawaii, hopefully not during this trip though, I think I've had a bit too much sugar already ;)

Take care.

Love your moral of the story as I can relate to that on all counts...sugary things, spicy things, salty things, greasy, etc etc. My excuse is that my eyes don't see very well these days, therefore I tend to overcompensate..heehee.

K and S said...

I should use that overcompensation thing too Rowena ;)

Take care.
