On my way home from Chicago, I stopped into the enticing airport bakery Let Them Eat Cake to grab a few goodies for my flight.
Glazed Croisssant with Almond Shavings: Ok, this thing was nearly as large as my face and I intended on sharing it with my travel companions. Furthermore, I had just scarfed down two large Jimmy John's subs and thought for sure I could only manage a few bites of dessert. While a bit sweet, the croissant was so darn delicious it simply dissolved in my mouth, one bite after the next. The massive treat was gone before my friends even knew I bought it! Oops~
Carrot Cake: While there isn't such thing as a bad carrot cake in my book, you can have some that just don't sing hallelujah. The icing on this dessert was very sweet while at the same time leaving a bit of a bitter aftertaste, a sign of artificial ingredients at work here. Bleh.
