Supposedly France’s “villainous” Queen Marie Antoinette said “let them eat cake” after someone complained that peasants were so poor they couldn’t afford bread. That comment was supposedly one of the “screw yous” to peasants that pissed them off enough to have a revolution and cut off her head. Whether she actually made that statement is historically debated. But what will never be debated in the history of the world is that cake = yum.
So from this day forward let’s give “let them eat cake” a whole new meaning of delicious joy for everyone. We’ve bought a wedding cake, and boy was it a fun process.
We went to this bakery that specializes in wedding cakes, and they literally brought out plates and plates full of cake. Continuously. As much as you could stuff in your face. We tried vanilla, strawberry, banana, peach, coffee, hazelnut, and on and on. The selection never ended.
That’s a picture of the cake we’ve ordered. In cafe latte flavor. Fiance (aka: coffee fiend) is pretty happy about it.
That was a whole better experience than the Italian bakery that stuffed us in their windowless back office and showed us pictures of cakes from the 80s and said they couldn’t do anything more than one tier without a layer of styrofoam in between…if this other place can do it, why can’t you? Just saying. And seriously, $200 delivery? The cake from the specialist place is cheaper and they’ll come and fix it if someone drops it before dinner time!
Wedding cake shopping is a pretty sweet experience.
