need cake recommendation
We need to bring a cake - layer or ring cake - for our family Mother's Day cookout, and I feel too lazy to bake this year.
Any suggestions for a good cake in Center City?
Not strawberry shortcake; someone is bringing that.
If you are only feeling half lazy, get a lemon pound cake from the Amish in the RTM, slice horizontally, add lemon curd, serve with whipped cream - and some fresh berries if you can get them!
In South Philly, not Center City, but the zuccotto from Varallo Brothers is a great Italian cake.
I meant to post before this.
Your suggestions were great!
As it happened, events kept me from getting to any of the suggested places.
You have given me an enticing list, and since I have an ever-present sweet tooth, I hope to try all of them.
For this occasion, since time was short, we stopped at Whole Foods and bought a Tropical Carrot Cake. The Tropical meant that it had pieces of pineapple running through it.
It was actually pretty good. Since it had plenty of icing, the kids loved it.
And the other treats await me!
