I had been having a craving for red velvet cake (yes I know, what an odd craving!) for the longest time ever, and finally, last Thursday (16 February), I decided to go and get myself a slice from Coffee Bean after work.
Told colleague D about wanting to buy a slice of red velvet cake, and she lent me her Coffee Bean stored value card readily, so I said I’d get her a piece. Then after that, another colleague YL heard us talking about it, and after googling the cake, said she also wanted to try it as well. :)
So I stopped by the Coffee Bean outlet near my place, got three slices of red velvet and popped them into the fridge once I got home. The next morning, I took them on a 45-minute journey (walk, MRT, walk) to work.
Finally, I burst into the office and announced to D and YL that their cakes had arrived!
And when I opened the boxes, what a sight greeted me! Alas! Due to all the bumping and thumping, the icing on the cakes had either smashed or fell off in several places……!
All bashed up!!!
Luckily, D and YL were pretty gracious about it. Nevertheless, I took the cui-est piece. :D
And turned out that all three of us skipped breakfast so that we could enjoy our cake! And I did so immensely. The icing was sweet with a hint of sourness and the cake was moreish. Not enough icing, though! (And I think the red velvet from Food For Thought is slightly better, though!)
And the best part? D said it was her treat!!! :D
