That little big beauty is a piece of coconut cake from Cheeser’s Palace, a café located in Clermont, Florida that makes the most unbelievably delicious cakes.
Ryan discovered Cheeser’s cakes through his work when one of his colleagues began bringing in a different cake to celebrate the birthday of each person in their department. He has raved about the cakes ever since he tried his first slice!
About a month or so ago, he managed to snag a small slice of a lemon cake at work to bring home for me to try. I was overwhelmed by how perfectly moist the cake was and how amazingly sweet and creamy the icing tasted. It was love at first bite.
The next day I went to Cheeser’s website and emailed Ryan a list of all the cakes Cheeser’s makes, with the ones I especially wanted to try highlighted in bright yellow. (Wow. I think I may have a problem.)
Well, today I got to try the coconut cake – my number one choice!
Ryan brought home a huge slice of coconut cake from work today. (It was his boss’s birthday and she selected the coconut cake. Smart woman!)
I was overjoyed and instantly declared that I would be eating cake for dinner! 😀
I enjoyed every last decadent bite.
Dinner Number Two
Of course I felt like I needed something nutritious in my belly, so I made myself a second dinner, but still kept it sweet since my sweet tooth was apparently raging this evening.
I enjoyed my breakfast parfait on Wednesday morning so much that I decided to recreate it for dinner tonight.
For those of you who are extra observant and noticed the “52” on the wine glass in the above picture, the glass was a free gift from a cooking demo we attended where chefs from Season’s 52 taught us some tricks of the trade at our local Whole Foods. (You may see a recap from another free cooking demo we attended at Whole Foods here. I wasn’t blogging at the time of the Season’s 52 demo. 🙂 )
I made my dinner parfait by layering vanilla Greek yogurt with frozen strawberries and a frozen banana blended together into creamy, fruity soft serve.
It was the perfect mini-meal after indulging in a huge piece of amazing cake.
My sweet tooth is satisfied. 😀
