Specialty Cakes vs. Grocery Store Cakes

Quite often I will get questioned on prices of specialty cakes, or get a comparison comment to the local grocery store prices. I recently came across the following two photos that helps me answer these questions I have gotten. Specialty cakes, like what we make here at The Cake Boutique are made to order- which means the cake, and icing are made fresh for your particular order. In most grocery stores and superstore cakes are shipped in frozen and iced with premade icing from a bucket. There is a lot less time invested in a grocery store cake and often in the decorations as well.

The macaron is commonly filled with ganachebuttercream or jam sandwiched between two biscuits (cookies). The name is derived from the Italian word macaronemaccarone or maccherone."  Check out the whole Foxymess blog
