But, what about those huge cake/pie "exhibits", those revolving dessert displays? Is that where you saw your pie?
One of the most amazing things about the years I lived in NYC were those exact diner desert cases, featuring mile high pie and mega layered cakes. It was as if all of the bakery products were super sized. Inch after inch of layered cakes with icing that had no end. These sweets were picture perfect, like out of a magazine.
But that is were it all ended. the vast majority of these decadant diner deserts tasted like they were regular items over-inflated with air. What a disappointment. How could things that looked so good, and so big, be SO BLAND? All that work to Make them SO BIG and SO BEAUTIFUL...to end up SO BORING, SO BAD.
Nice to hear that there are actually some that taste good. I finally just stopped having desert, it was too disappointing
