Looking for a custom cake? Check out Cute as Cake for your next celebration!
I want to start off this post by first taking a moment to thank everyone who has been following me from the beginning as well as new followers. It's been such a fun journey for me and I've learned a lot, ate quite a lot, and met some really fantastic people along the way!
When I first started The Food Joy it was mostly inspired by my close friends and family suggesting I write down my recipes to share with them and document the great restaurants I eat at in the city. Never did I imagine that in less than a year I'd be celebrating such a milestone--20,000 followers on my Instagram account!
Most people that don't know me assume that I do this full time; even my father joked that I must've quit my job with all the blog posts I've been writing recently! Although I have a full-time job working as a Data Analyst for NYU School of Medicine (aka being a total nerd during the day), I do spend most of my off-time committed to my blog. It is quite time consuming but this has truly evolved into my passion and it's just sheer icing on the cake that I have others following along!
Speaking of icing and cake ;) see what I did there? Let's get to my cake that Cute as Cake bakery in NYC graciously made for me to really mark this celebration! Cute as Cake specializes in fondant cakes which allows you the ability to make really fun, unique creations!
I wanted something clean and simple. I explained over email what I wanted and they delivered that and more. They came up with the cute idea to put the cake on a beautiful shiny, silver and ornate paper as the base. They also added a nice touch of a black ribbon going along the bottom of the cake to go with my theme of clean and simple. They also printed my logo on edible paper!
In case you weren't sure if fondant is edible...
To the most important part: the flavor! I thought with all these hot summer days I needed something refreshing. I went with a lemon cake with buttercream and lemon curd filling...yum!
Here are their full line of flavors and fillings:
Vanilla, Chocolate, White Chocolate, Lemon,
Peanut Butter, Peanut Buttercup, Strawberry,
Almond, Mint, Mocha, Peppermint, Banana, Swiss Meringue, Italian Meringue,
Chocolate Chip, Cookies & Cream
Cream Cheese Icing
Chocolate/ White Chocolate Ganache
Oreo Fluff Icing
Cannoli Pastry Filling
Dulce de Leche
Don't need a cake? They also do cake pops, cupcakes, push-up cake pops, cookies... And dog treats if you're looking to make his/her day extra special!
