Cake tasting

Growing up we had a snack called Tastykake. It is like Little Debbie...only better.

At least I thought they were.

Fred brought home some Butterscotch Krimpets, TandyKakes, Blueberry Pies and Chocolate Cupcakes.

I had some for breakfast.

I don't feel really too guilty about this, since they will be gone soon and I won't be able to eat them until next year. I have to confess they are not as good as I remembered, but that is another blog.

So...after a nutritious breakfast of Tastykake Chocolate Cupcakes, what did I eat next? Some of the 144 soft pretzels Fred brought back with him? No...

I went wedding cake tasting with my friend Tiffany and her fiance Eric.

I had some vanilla, almond, praline, lemon-blueberry and chocolate Bourbon cakes....with various icings for dipping and mixing.


They weren't bad, but they didn't knock my socks off. And I really didn't like the woman who made them. I felt that we were inconveniencing her. She also didn't have official forms. She did her math on a large legal tablet and ripped a page out to hand it to the groom. Maybe it's me, but I would have expected more professional behavior.

I was also expecting champagne.

Well, tomorrow Tiffany may be checking out Joe T. Garcia's (restaurant) for a location for her bridal portraits. We may have to tag along to offer our opinions. And sample the margaritas.

I think I am about ready to go into a diabetic coma. Either that or take a nap. Or eat some salt water taffy.
