When you think about eating your favorite dessert, what comes to mind? Now, imagine that being 10 times better. Are you with me so far? You know, the dessert that is so good it makes you feel all warm and gooey inside while it's melting across your taste buds until you feel a sense of euphoria. Okay, that may be a tad over board but you get my drift.
Recently I had the pleasure of trying a gourmet cake from Bake Me A Wish. We tried the Peanut Butter Mousse cake. Let me tell ya, I had no hesitations about doing this review! I asked my son to help me with this review,(he picked the cake) he was quick to say yes. Of course, he's a teenager, do you know one who doesn't like cake? Sadly for him he went on vacation with relatives the same time I received the cake. I say sadly because I really liked this cake and so did a few friends of mine so, my son only got one piece, the last piece! (Don't judge me, I did save him a piece after all!) ha ha! My son did say he'd buy it every day if he could, so thumbs up there. All of the cakes also come with a personalized plaque made from Belgian chocolate. It was awesome too!
(I never got a chance to take a picture of the actual cake before it was cut into) Although, this is a picture of the same cake we tried.
Bake Me A Wish has my family's seal of approval on their cake. They have many types and flavors of cakes to choose from, it was really hard for us to settle on just one to try. Besides their chocolate cakes they also have carrot cake, coconut cream, vanilla bean, etc... and an assortment of coffee cakes as well.
