We ended up celebrating Brent’s birthday a week early, so everyone missed out on the best birthday cake in the city and had to settle for eating slab cake, meanwhile yours truly ate about a year’s worth of cake within the span of a week. It was a wonder we even got the cake. With his birthday being so close to the holidays and overlapping with the end of my semester, it was a struggle to order the cake in time. Thankfully I had not ordered anything too elaborate and they were able to make it. Ironically they do not have vanilla flavour, which I kind of associate and consider interchangeable with “birthday cake” flavour. I’m not complaining, the chocolate cake was amazing. The buttercream was a bit much for me, but I hate buttercream so no surprise there. Within three days the two of us had devoured the whole thing. It’s not the first time. A few, quite a few, years ago we devoured within two days a DQ Smarties ice cream cake.
