Right now, this very minute I am taste testing two slices of two week old wedding cake, cold, right out of the refrigerator.
In this corner we have Hy-Vee Red Velvet, the apparent Fan Favorite after the groundhog didn’t see his shadow on Sunday February 2nd this year.
And in this corner we have Wheatfields unnamed and unrated Chocolate Cake, the last minute contender when Lindas Fudge Cake from the Cheesecake Factory was a no-show for the event.
Let’s dive in and see how they do…
“It’s tough to hold up under this pressure, Bob.. I mean, it has been a whole two weeks and these to have been locked up in air tight container since the first round.
“That’s right, Jim.. but the temperature and conditions have elongated their staying power.
“You’re right Bob.. Should we take a closer look and see how they did”
“Sure thing Jim.. Let’s go”…
…The chocolate has dried out a lot and you have to get a good bit of frosting in each bite or it’s just dry and hard. That being said, it is chocolate and I think even the most stale chocolate cake can get by just fine, cuz, chocolate!!
The red velvet, however, still retains some of its fluffy qualities and the cheesecake frosting is just the perfect compliment to it. It has lost a little of it’s flavor flair since the unveiling two weeks ago.
Who’s gonna take away today’s prize? Tune in tomorrow and I’ll fill you in on all the sticky crumby details then.
