Do you ever watch the Food Network Cake Challenges?

Well, if you do then you are sure to have seen the owners of LET THEM EAT CAKE doing some of their magic.

The have won two First Place gold medals and one 2nd place silver medal for their cakes.

The guy I take most of my classes for cake decorating from, John, sometimes helps the owners out and works at LET THEM EAT CAKE. He has even taught them how to make some sugar flowers.

Let me tell you the cakes he makes are wonderful and tastes like heaven. So, I'm expecting LET THEM EAT CAKE to be just as good, if not better.

Let's go check them out.

The shop itself is not that big. There is a small area with a few tables where you can enjoy your purchase and lots of books to browse through. All the books are about cake decorating, recipes, chocolate and sugar flowers.

Most of the items you would purchase are special requests and the amount of bakery items are pretty slim for those who just walk in like we are doing.

Here you can see some of the books, the pastry case and one of the two tables you can sit at.

They also have some of the most beautiful cakes they have done on display. It was hard to get the pictures as most were behind glass in cases and the reflection was to strong so it made seeing the cakes to hard.

They don't have cupcakes like most places. Their cupcakes are more like mini cakes. They have unique flavors and they all have fillings.

Today they only had three flavors left to pick from.

They also sell huge cookies! Yum.

Look at these cakes! That witch was on display when WICKED came to town. The Performing Arts had LET THEM EAT CAKE make it.

Look at that stack of vintage suit cases. See the sign next to it. Yes It's Real Cake! WOW!

I loved this Empire State Building cake.

Here is one of the owners, Margie working hard on an order she had to finish up.

The big checks and the medals they won from the Food Network are on display.

Look at this cupcake! It's chocolate with raspberry filling inside. I didn't get to try this one. My great niece Trinity was with me and wanted this one. She took it home to enjoy tonight. The outside is all chocolate.

This is the one I got. It's white cake with one layer of blackberry filling, one layer of lemon curd and one layer of lemon butter cream. It's wrapped in a white chocolate and topped with shaved white chocolate and a fresh berries.

Here is what it looks like inside. I couldn't wait to dig in and try this.

Well, let me tell you, words can not describe how good this was. It was like bursts of flavor and textures that had to come straight from heaven.

It's super rich though and one can not eat the whole thing alone. Or at least not at one time. Plus it's bigger then most cupcakes.

Now I'm not even sure if this is fair to put up against the other bakeries cupcakes as this one is almost in a class by itself.

It's the most costly so far at $7.00 each but it's worth every penny! I have nothing bad to say about this cupcake/mini cake. Except that now, I can't wait to try all the other flavors.

I don't know if it's going to be humanly possible to top this one but I'll keep searching.

I guess it's to hell with the Diet......

Can't say I blame you. It's hard to walk away from a delicious cupcake.
