I don’t know why I did it to myself, but I did. I agreed to a review of a Bake Me A Wish cake while on a Nutrisystem diet. But that’s okay, I’m a big girl. I decided to take the beautiful cake pictured above to share with my family on Thanksgiving.
I was sent a chocolate mousse torte cake. The cake arrived in a carefully packed cooler with dry ice to keep it fresh. The cake comes in a pretty shiny decorative box and is wrapped in cellophane (again for freshness). I carefully placed it in my fridge and hoped for some willpower (Thanksgiving was 2 days away).
The description reads:“Two rich, chocolate cake layers are filled with luscious chocolate whipped cream mousse, then covered with milk chocolate frosting and a dark chocolate glaze. This best selling delight is then garnished with fudge rosettes and dark chocolate shaves. Includes an imported Belgian Chocolate Occasion Plaque, matching Greeting Card and is packaged in an elegant gift box!”
The description should read “Death by Chocolate…”. Everything about this cake screams rich, silky, smooth, O. M. G. yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm (wiping drool from my chin).</FONT color=”#804040″>
The cake made it safely to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. Incredibly, I did not have a single crumb. I kept hearing comments like “It’s so rich!”, “Usually it’s just the frosting that is incredibly rich… the cake is rich, too!” and general moans of pleasure garbled with a few “ohhhhh”s and “yummmmmm”s. My brother-in-law was asking where the cake came from. I mentioned I had shown the website to my sister-in-law and he said “Oh, good. She’ll know where to go to buy one then!”.
I would definitely say this cake was a success! In hindsight I wish I had had one tiny nibble, but the joy it brought to my family was worth the excess drool on my chin.
You can purchase the chocolate mousse torte cake for $39.95.
