Today was a great day. When I got to work, I had this huge box from Dean & Deluca on my desk, with a card attached on the side. I opened it, and it was from one of my clients, saying that she sent me a "small" gift of appreciation for all of the help I had provided her throughout the year. When I opened the box, the first thing I saw was this:
And then after wading through a pile of pink-ness, bubble wrap and freezer packs, I got to this:
And that, ladies & gentlemen... is the Dean & Deluca Sweet Couture Crocodile Pink Cake. Now, I know you can't tell from the pictures, but the detail on this thing is ridiculous. I looks like an actual pink handbag, with crocodile embossing and everything. Keep in mind that I only have a phone relationship with this client, and talk to her maybe once or twice a week, and she somehow knows me well enough to send me a gift that is: a. Pink, b. a purse and c. edible. I love her. This may be one of the greatest gifts ever. And as much as it pained me to cut into this thing, Ryan was pretty excited about eating a piece of cake that cost almost as much as our entire wedding cake. To make it even better, here's what this baby looks like inside:
To be exact, it is a layered Tahitian vanilla bean cake with chocolate fudge and white chocolate butter cream. Or, as I would call it, heaven. I seriously suggest adding this to your Christmas list ASAP.
