Cake

Ok, so one thing that I definitely miss so far is cake. It's just not the same here...it can be sickeningly sweet but overall it's just not as good. The cake itself is not as dense and the frosting just isn't the same. I swear even the frosting is kind of fluffy. I haven't seen any specialty cakes such as carrot cake, lemon cake, etc. but maybe I just haven't come across it yet. In any case, the knafa here is so good that I really don't have a lot of room to complain.

  2. Can you buy a cake MIX? If not, can you buy flour, eggs, sugar, etc. etc.? I'm sure you could find a recipe on line for a homemade cake....just a thought. Message me about your facebook comment...you have my interest piqued now. Love you!

  5. Thanks NeverMind for the advice on where to go! My friend took me the other day to a place that had really good cheesecake and blueberry struedel so I'm not convinced that the cake situation isn't so bad....

  6. I never really thought about the cake, but you are right that it's pretty different. I was able to find mixes, but it's not the same as someone else making the cake, lol!
