|VIKTOR BENES Princess Cake, from Gelson's in Valley Village, California.|
And of all the glorious choices in the abundant display cases, my very favorite is their princess cake. Have you ever had princess cake? It's hella good, and...it's hella pretty. You know I love it. It's breathtakingly simple: light yellow cake layered with whipped cream, a hint of custard and raspberry jam, domed in bright green marzipan. Who doesn't deserve a sweet little reward after walking all those lonely aisles shopping for...whatever?
Viktor Benes makes the best princess cake I've ever had (and it's even better when you're wearing heels). Feel free to challenge me and tell me you've had better. I'll happily devour it.
