Costco cake for sale at Bottega Fiorentina...

Stopped at Bottega Fiorentina in Coolidge Corner a couple of days ago and picked up some delicious prosciutto panini (at an excellent price, as always). While there, my SO subtly gestured at the display case where there was a HUGE chocolate cake with slices for sale. We both recognized this dessert, without question, as the decadent and delicious $14.99 cake from Costco - another of the best deals in Boston - but we were very surprised to see it for sale in this setting. Does any one else frequent Bottega Fiorentina, and if so, have you ever noticed this?

    I am the baker of this infamous chocolate cake and I assure you that it is not a product of "Costco".
    Intriguied by this posting I traveled to Costco to inspect this fascimile myself. I pleased to report that although Costco's rendition is similar, is it by no means on equal par with my own creation.

      Can I order cakes directly from you? I LOVE your chocolate cake. Bottega Fiorentina wouldn't tell me where they got it.

        Keep my fingers crossed for you. You just replied to a 3.5 year old post.
