21st Birthday Cake

I had offered a friend to help him source and buy his 21st birthday cake.

It’s no longer an easy task.

During my time, cakes were just about all the same.

Something like this.

Not anymore….

Now, budgets are BIGGER, expectations are higher and bakers are getting more creative with their cake flavors and designs.

I will be getting my cake from Pine Garden since my sister-in-law had tried them before and she was not disappointed.

They have unique flavors including Brandy Cherry, Lychee Martini, Bailey’s Chocolate Crunch (which I was tempted to get) but in the end, I decided to get the very safe and recommended Triple Layer Chocolate cake.

As for the design, I surfed the Internet for ideas and came across many super creative cakes!

So many to choose from!

I wanted to custom make the cake but in the end, due to budget and time constraints, I chose one of Pine Garden’s Mastercard Key design and it turned out like this:

Almost $150 for 3kg. Taste wise, I still prefer the Chocolate Classico from Four Leaves and Guanaja cake from Rive Gauche.
