Did Susie Cakes and Compartes Chocolates this afternoon. We forked it over for 3 cakes. Bruce wasn't too thrilled about the $$ but, ya know, I said it was a chowhound induction, the "right" thing to do. So it was a chocolate and a lemon cake and a chocolate brownie for Bruce (the chocoholic). Very good really but, sorry compadres, I can better spend 9$ elsewhere.
Compartes on the other hand is biblical... absolutely priceless!!! We tried raspberry, coffee, vanilla and chocolate fudge truffles. Not too adventurous as Bruce is the chocolate fanatic, not me. Maybe next time I'll go for the exotic ones. Well, after a word or two with the most delightful Jonathan, I tried some Love Nuts - oh baby! Them nuts are the bomb! I'm hooked and signed up after the 3rd Love Nut. :)
Ok, so, one thing done, and a million more to go.
Thank you again CHOWHOUNDS for all your recommendations. The food in this wedding is going to be a chapter all by itself!
BTW - Mentioned to Jonathan that I found his shop through all of you! He was quite pleased. :) :) KQ
