• vegan birthday cake from real food daily

    October 6th, 2008quarrygirlLA restaurants, real food daily

    last week i turned 24, and while to me getting older is a kinda depressing thought, i took it as an excuse to completely gorge myself on vegan cake.

    chocolate & peanut butter cake from real food daily! (i dunno how much it cost 'cause it was a gift)

    i haven’t had a birthday cake since i was 18…back in the day when i was still a vegetarian. i used to love the gooey dribbling frosting and moist chocolate sponginess—all stuff i’ve half-way written off since becoming a vegan. luckily for me, i have the most awesome co-workers who went out of their way to surprise me with a delicious vegan cake from real food daily and 3 bottles of specialty beer. what a gesture!

    the cake was out of this world. everyone in the office was going at it, and nobody had a problem with the fact it was vegan. in fact, the cake was GONE, no leftovers, in like 30 minutes. usually we order cake from sweet lady jane’s, and when we do, a few slices always get thrown out. not with the real food daily cake, uh uh. people were coming over from different departments, wishing me a happy birthday just so they could sleaze away with a slice of me cake! it was great watching omnivores enjoying the vegan dessert. and trust me, i got plenty of it to myself—two big slices that sent me into a food coma and rendered me useless for the rest of the day. mmm. chocolate-peanut-buttery goodness.

    yummmmmmmmy cake.

    i know we at quarrygirl have had some unkind things to say about real food daily in the past (sometimes they blow), but none of those feelings spill over into my review of their cake. i don’t really know how expensive this was because it was a surprise, and i don’t know how the service was because i didn’t pick it up…but i DO know that my bday cake tasted incredible and looked beautiful. people were questioning, “how do they make it so soft and moist?”, “are you sure this doesn’t have eggs in it?”, “omg how do they make this taste just like real cake?” and then it was all gone. and everyone was full.

    i highly recommend real food daily for a stellar, tasty birthday cake. i may even have to give them another shot and eat there again.

    and a big shout out to the peeps who bought me this cake. if you ever read this, you rule!

    (I am DONE with RFD, too. I wish I’d had my Camera last Sunday… I ordered and Omelet and Tofu Scramble came out instead… And I was so hungry and didn’t want to send it back and wait around K ate her food I just started eating it ONLY TO FIND A SCRUB BRUSH BRISTLE mixed in with the spinach… They kindly didn’t charge me for the half eaten dish… Never going back again, lol)

  • Happy Birthday, cake looks really good.

    “omg how do they make this taste just like real cake?”

    That’s funny, because it sounds like they are eating FAKE cake. Is that a REAL cake? No, it’s the fake kind.

  • that’s so cool. Happy belated birthday!
