It Really Takes the Cake!
Sunday, December 20, 2015
Last Friday was Bouncing Boy's birthday, and he wanted a strawberry cake with chocolate frosting. But when we went to our local WalMart bakery, they didn't do strawberry cake. So I said, how about chocolate cake with strawberry frosting. But they didn't do strawberry frosting either! What to do?! The lovely young lady behind the counter said they did have strawberry filling, a thick glaze. She offered to make a chocolate 1/4 sheet cake, fill it with the strawberry glaze, then mix some of the glaze into white buttercream frosting for the outside!
The result was spectacular! She used navy frosting for the trim and writing, and he loved it! But the best thing of all was the taste. It was simply delicious, quite the best birthday cake ever. Everyone was crazy about it. And the nice young lady who went to such lengths to make the boy's cake just the way he wanted it? We went back and tried to thank her by giving her a tip, but she would not accept it. But I just had to tell somebody. In this day of fast food and cheaply made products, it was so refreshing to have someone go above and beyond what was required. If you live near Anderson, Indiana, just know that in their bakery there is a young lady named Lorie who is just the best!
