The List: Alon's Midnight Cake
So with that background, I was biding my time in ordering the Midnight Cake from Alon's, thinking and hoping it would be equally amazing. I LOVE Alon's though I rarely indulge in their treats. Finally, it was time to jump in! In terms of pleasing the eye, well, the cake was definitely a winner.Gorgeous outside as well as in!
However, I'm sad to say the actual taste of the cake itself was decidedly average. The cake was on the dry side and the frosting was bland. I sampled with a friend of mine who shared my impression and another friend reported the same disappointment. A rare list misfire. Ah well, it was bound to happen.
Fortunately Alon's has PLENTY of other options for your discerning palate. If not, Wright's Gourmet shop is only two miles away and there's a guaranteed awesome cake there!!
