(One of my girlfriends) Katie and I went on a little date (with my dog Ollie) to Lilac Bakery. We biked there and were so ready for cake when we go there. The store is a cute little shop with two glass displays of all the great desserts they have for sale. You can smell all the great things they are baking up in the bake as well. My favorite part? That they bake with butter. I think it was the owner (or one of them?) that was serving us and he said "If you're going to do it go all the way" and went on to say how they only use the best ingredients etc. I don't know about you but I can usually taste the quality difference when there was butter instead of margarine used and you can definitely taste it in this cake. It is one of my favorites on this chocolate fest!
Doesn't this icing look a lot like the icing on Our Best Bites? I'm going to try it sometime and see if it's the same, if so it's in my favorite books for life!
Sitting outside in the wonderful sun enjoying the cake. Wow, I think it was the best chocolate cake I have ever had. The icing was just fantastic!
