Legend has it that when asked about her starving citizens, Marie Antoinette scoffed, “Let them eat cake!” This, of course, was one of the factors that might have led to her decapitation. If Fattycakes were around in France back then, perhaps Marie would have suggested “Let them eat cookie cake,” and she might have kept her head. For if the starving citizens of France actually tasted one of Fattycakes’ delectable creations, there would have been cheering her name from the Eiffel Tower to the Champs de Elysee.
Though it has been centuries since the days of the guillotine, I would suggest sinking you cake knife into one of the countless custom cakes available from Fattycakes. Founded by Jennifer Taylor-Miller in Brooklyn in 2009, Fattycakes emerged out of a gustatory dare from her former colleagues who would challenge Jennifer to create insane cookie recipes using unlikely ingredients, such as bacon, popcorn and Swedish fish. Today, the recipes are a bit more subdued, but all the more tasty, losing none of the original, energetic drive to be the best.
Through the website fattycakesny.com, customers can purchase made to order cakes that begin with a cookie flavor, then a frosting, then extra treats at $5 each. Thus, my sample creation might be the following:
Red Velvet Cookie Cake
Vanilla Confetti Sprinkles
Topped with –
Cherry Jam, Gummy Bears and Stout Caramel
The choices are endless, the tastes unique and totally luxurious, and the danger to diabetics, extreme. But if one lives only with moderation, then, perhaps, one is not truly living. With that in mind, Fattycakes offers a Cookie Cake of the Month club with 3 month, 6 month and 12 month options.
For a sweet and romantic addition to your wedding celebration, Fattycakes can provide mini-cookie cakes that would serve as wonderful favors, or a made to order wedding cake that would be as memorable as the live band and the honeymoon.
