A delicious lemon cake with vanilla bean cream filling and butter cream frosting is my Achilles heel! It doesn’t matter where I am, what’s going on in my life, whether I’m dieting, or getting ready for a special event, if someone is serving cake I’m there! I can’t resist a big hunk of a deliciously sugary, billowy soft slice of heaven. And with the remarkable cake artists out there incorporating their talents with great recipes I don’t see me giving up my Jones for it any time soon.
I list 5 great places to indulge in the delicious desserts in this week’s installment of Gastronome Wednesday ~ Let Them Eat CAKE!

Opened in 1994 by identical twin sisters Dacapo’s Pastry Café is home to some of the best cakes in Houston, Texas. My favorite aspect of these cakes…they rarely use Fondant. Buttercream is the way to go and, in my opinion, most delicious!
This very unique Brixton, South West London shop caters to vegan and wheat/gluten free customers. Their delicious cakes make you forget you have intolerance to what most feel gives cake its sweet, soft goodness. Don’t fret; they also make the sugary, flour kind as well making sure that all their clients leave with a smile.
