Fakeo Cakes

Dylan Yolles | Feb 2, 200112:43 AM

The thread on wedding cakes inspired me to post this. Where can one get the best fakeo cakes in LA? A fakeo cake is one of those white cakes with white frosting of the general genre sold at most supermarkets. However, the ones at the supermarkets in LA aren't particularly good, in my experience. Note that "good" does not mean natural tasting; fakeo cakes are, by their very nature, fake--filled with artificial stuff like vanillan and so on.

The true test of a fakeo cake must be the icing. In my view, the best fake icing must have a slight underlying granularity (from the sugar) and not be perfectly smooth (a la something resembling a marshmallow or cream). It must also have the very slightest hint of a dry shell that forms when the icing hits the air.

Any ideas?
