cakes from Cecilia V. in Athens GA

OK, so these are supposed to be the greatest cakes in the world. Or at least in Georgia, but I just don't get it. And I have tasted about a dozen different flavors and from different locations (restaurants, weddings, the shop itself) just to see if I'm missing out.

The cake itself is usually so dense and dry that it takes away all of whatever flavor it is supposed to have, and both the buttercream & wispier (7-minute?) icings don't taste like what I expect them to either.

What am I missing?
