A giant heap of frosted love to Big Gay Ice Cream owners Doug (above) and Bryan (below) who generously let me hitch a ride home with them this weekend to attend the "Summer Cake Launch" at Baltimore's world-renowned Charm City Cakes in Charles Village. In addition to an impromptu tour at a gourmet factory kitchen in Jersey (more impressive than it sounds), I sampled my way thru an ample amount of tasty frosted (and non-frosted) whores d'oeuvres at the CCC cake launch. I even briefly rubbed sholders with food celebrity and Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman.
The true heroes of the night remained the cakes. . . and the creative crew of diligent artists who spend hours crafting them. It might only take a few minutes to consume --or brief seconds in my case-- but each haute caketure confectionary sculpture can take days to complete.
For what it's worth, my tummy thanks you.
