Remember when I included Forever Sweet Bakery in this list of great Connecticut dessert vendors? Little did I know that the business card I dropped into the raffle that night would win me a six-inch cake of my choice from the bakery!
Obviously, I had to pay homage to the cupcake that initially reeled me in by selecting a Red Velvet cake as my prize. I decided to try the buttercream frosting instead of the cream cheese option and asked for heart shaped sprinkles because, why not? Mr. Forever was sweet (no pun intended!) enough to swing by the bakery in Norwalk and pick up the cake, which was beautiful and larger than I’d expected. The icing was perfect, so pretty that I almost didn’t want to cut into it, but we’ve all been duped by a lovely facade that didn’t deliver so I had to confirm that my initial inclinations about Forever Sweet Bakery were right. One deliciously moist bite confirmed that (the incredibly thick, sweet icing also fueled my sugar addiction- time for another Whole30 perhaps?). More impressive than the initial bite of cake however, was the fact that the cake tasted just as moist an entire week later, after sitting in my fridge in the box it came it. This would be a great cake to order for a wedding or a party because guests can take home leftover slices that will keep well.
As for the customer service? Impeccable. The cake was ready on time, lovelier than I could have imagined and I received a followup call to make sure that I was happy with my order. I truly believe in supporting local Connecticut businesses and I’m happy to have found a Norwalk bakery that’s won me over. Even better? For a limited time you can snag a great voucher to Forever Sweet Bakery from Amazon Local that gets you $20 worth of goods for just $10. You know I’ve already purchased mine!
