Is it the extra detail topped on the cake or its dense flavorful bite? the airy sponge? the light whipped cream? Or would you bring a pie filled with hand-picked organic fruit from your backyard? with a crispy pastry crust? or a pressed crust of ground walnuts, brown sugar, and dairy organic butter?
I remember having little patience waiting for my mom to open the pink box to find the rich dark chocolate dobash cake or the german chocolate cake with coconut frosting…And then there were the days she brought home banana cream pies from Kapiolani Bakery. Key Lime Pies.. and of course Darlene’s homemade custard pies.
