Wes's special birthday cake

About this time last year, a new store came to Lexington, The Fresh Market. If you are familiar with this store, you know that you can spend a couple of hours just aimlessly walking around. On one such visit, Wes and I were casing the bakery department, when he spotted the Black and White Cookie. One bite and we were both hooked. If you've never had one, you might not want to start because they are addictive, but you should also know these aren't small cookies. The first time we each had our own and I was somewhat sick afterwards. Since then I have graduated and can now easily eat the whole cookie, sometimes I think I could eat 2! This has become Wes's dessert of choice and a must anytime we go to Fresh Market. So when I found this recipe for Black and White cake, I knew this is what I wanted to make him for his birthday. Since the recipe is quite long, I'll spare the long post and you can just visit the link to get the recipe. I will, however, post my final product. I must say, I am quite proud of this cake and he thought it was wonderful, so it was all worth it.

The perfect slice! Is your mouth watering yet?


  1. YUMMO! I will definately have to try this one!

  2. That cake looks great! You should be proud.
