I think I inherited my grandmothers legendary sweet tooth. My ultimate weakness has always been cake, but it has to be cake with buttercream icing. Don't bastardize a cake with whipped cream and fruit....if you're gonna do it right, it has to be buttercream! I love it's sweet...
Too me a cake is all about the icing, I will eat the icing and leave the cake - the cake is stodgy and not all that impressive. Usually at a party there is someone who prefers cake to icing and we get to swap.
I always ask for a corner slice of cake. This is where most of the frosting is on B'day cakes.
I really like it more with a couple of scoops of ice cream on top.
Yes bakery cakes with that wonderful icing is one of the greatest sweet treats for me.
I used to eat Icing inbetween gram crackers. That was something that was really good. I don't like to eat Icing that much. I guess that I have never been one for Icing. But yet I will eat it at times. Even when it is on a cake.
