Cake Works

Let them eat cake.  One would think that in tough economic times, people would forsake eating dessert.  Not so.  People still are getting married and having showers,hence Cake Works works.

Cake Works is located at 2820 S. King Street, across the Humane Society.  It’s a little tricky getting there but people seem to find it.  Hubby and I have passed Cake Works but never stopped until Saturday.

Cake Works forte is their specialty cakes.  The small cake costs $16.  Cake Works also sells other pastries including biscotti and cup cakes.  I decided instead of buying one cake, I would get 3 slices of cake.  I opted to try the Devil’s Food, Strawberry and Carrot Cake.

The cakes were very different.  The carrot cake was simple but dense with a thick cream cheese frosting.  I I thought the cake was good but I personally like the carrot cake at Paradise Bakery.  The strawberry cake was a light white cake with whipped cream and fresh strawberries.  The Devil’s Food cake was heavy and dense.

One of Cake Works specialty cakes is their mousse cakes which I didn’t try as they did not sell those by the slice.

Hubby tried the cakes and he decided he preferred the specialty cakes at Safeway Kapahulu.  I’m not sure I would go back.  The people there were very friendly and I think it might be worth a try.
