Wedding cake tasting going on around here for our friends Hector and Sarah. They asked for cream cheese cake or coconut cake so we started with this cream cheese cake. The first layer was flavored with vanilla only and the second layer was flavored with vanilla, almond and lemon. The second layer won the taste test of these two and was the 2nd runner up overall. Winner of the cake tasting will be posted tomorrow.
