Cake Show! We Have a Cake Show!

There's a chocolate, tea, coffee, and fancy dessert show. But this weekend is dedicated to cake.  My girlish figure aside, I love cake :)

I am picky about cake, however. It has to be moist, not dry, and the frosting can't be pure sugar. It needs butter too.

Billy's Bakery is my current go-to, and the cannoli filled cake at Veniero's is a rare but lovely treat. 

If you haven't picked a favorite yet (or you want to learn how to perfect your own), maybe try the cake Show this weekend.
