I'm searching for a delicious piece of cake in Austin. I personally think I make the best cake from scratch, but my kitchen still isn't put together so it'll be a bit before I can bust out the Kitchenaid and make my vanilla bean or Mexican chocolate cupcakes/cake. :D

I like old fashioned cake. Not fancy dense molten chocolate cake, but moist cake with a good crumble and buttercream frosting. I like buttercream from scratch, with actual sweet cream butter and powdered sugar. None of that Crisco or margarine buttercream (which a recent cupcake from Cissi's Market was coated in, inedible), but light fluffy, sugary (no sugar granuales please), buttercream. I like to eat my cake by the piece, or in cupcake form.

I used to be able to get a piece of old fashioned cake like Grandma made from my local grocery store in my last town, but the stuff at HEB doesn't look like it comes close.

Please help this cake fiend!
