Dahlia Bakery - Kudos

AJ | Mar 18, 200410:40 AM     11

I've had the opportunity this week to try several different items at the Dahlia Bakery - the currant soda bread (special for 3/17 only), chocolate cake with irish creme frosting (special for 3/17), and the buttermilk cake. I go there every so often for the lovely cherry almond scones (thank you - no frosting or sugar crystals, just your plain beautiful simple scone).

These are some of the best cakes I've had recently. I'm not a huge cake fan, but that buttermilk cake melted in my mouth and was delicate and matched a cup of coffee beautifully. My office-mates happily devoured it in minutes and felt they had done something particularily good to deserve it. The chocolate cake was light, four layers, and again, no sign of cheap ingredients; strong chocolate flavor that went well with the frosting. I wasn't certain about the frosting at first, but it had to be eaten with the cake and viola, a great combination. I'm looking forward to the next dinner party...when I don't have time to bake, this will be a great option.
