Review II: The cake of my dreams

About two years ago was the first time I saw a picture from The Cake Whisperer, an amazing baker that has her home base so very close to my own house! Since I saw her cakes I felt in love and, since then, I’ve been dreaming of getting myself a cake in the shape of a dragon.

However, I needed a good excuse and when Mr. Fairy With T proposed I got my answer: perfect day for dragon cake! Thus, we contacted Cathy and the planning started. We decided to go with a dragon wrapped around a camera. The camera would be representing Mr. Groom. The dragon would be wearing a veil since I wasn’t wearing one.

We also got a couple of bowling pins on the cake in representation to our very first date. Then came the hard part: the flavour! She gave me an extensive list:

  • Cookies n Cream Cake
  • Red Velvet Bliss Cake
  • Lemon Raspberry Cake
  • Cherry Confetti Cake
  • Caramel Cappuccino Cake
  • Crunchy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake
  • Vanilla Raspberry Cake
  • Caramel Apple Spice
  • Toasted Coconut Cream Cake
  • Banana Cinnamon French toast
  • Banana Chocolate Caramel
  • Chocolate Strawberry
  • Sweet vanilla
  • Classic Vanilla Chocolate
  • Vanilla Raspberry Mocha
  • Orange Dream

I didn’t even know so many flavours existed in real life! We tasted Orange Dream, Red Velvet, and Crunchy Chocolate Peanut Butter. I was honestly expecting the cake itself not to be anything special, come on! Someone with the mad skills of making art out of cake cannot be a good baker, right? WRONG! They were AMAZING! And it was SO hard to decide! We discarded the peanut butter one when we remembered that one of the guest has serious peanut allergies, so, for the sake of not killing anyone peanut was out! Red velvet was delicious but Cathy wisely pointed out that a red cake when you cut into an animal might be distasteful. So orange dream it was! BUT I was set on a chocolate cake. So Cathy always coming to the rescue suggested chocolate cake with orange filling (please note, the orange icing is made with real oranges, you could taste the freshness and see little bits of pulp: awesome!)

Isn’t it amazing?!

Not the best lighting but you can see details on the camera

We also got cupcakes with bowling details!

Thank you Cathy for making this dream come true! I’ll make sure to find another excuse to keep getting cakes from you! Until then,

Happy ramblings!
