n sent m a cake sampler from Black Hound New York so we all got together to taste them! six different kinds of 3-inch cakes came in a box:
– Busy Bee Cake
– Ebony and Ivory Cake
– Almond Apricot Cake
– Queen D Cake
– Carrot Cake
– Coconut Cake
they make look mini but they are dense cakes – you can feel it as you cut them. so we can all try each flavor, we cut them sixths. we only got to three of the six cakes, which was the perfect amount to taste the uniqueness of each one.
- Ebony and Ivory is layers of bittersweet chocolate butter cake and white chocolate buttercream
- Almond Apricot is almond cake with apricot preserve on top and decorated with honeyed almond flowers
- Busy Bee is layers of chocolate butter cake, almond butter cake, bittersweet chocolate mousse and marzipan, decorated with marzipan and almond bees
of the three we tried, my favorite – to my surprise – was the Almond Apricot Cake. since i’m not a particular fan of almond or jam, i didn’t expect to even like it but its combined flavors really worked together.
we had a lot of fun trying the cakes! they certainly are a treat for sight and smell. thx n!
