I've been going to Ikea a lot lately because I'm moving to a different apartment. Don't worry, I'm not going far, and I'm still going to be here to write about food in New York and Brooklyn. Part of the fun of going to Ikea is visiting the cafeteria because that place is CHEAP. Honestly, I think it's even cheaper than Chinatown. It's really cheap as shit. What you see in the picture above? That cost $1.29 pre tax. Seriously! Where else are you going to get a deal like that? Who else sells Princess Cakes? What the hell is a Princess Cake? Let's find out!
Now before we dive into what's actually in a Princess Cake, let's go over why kind of desserts I like. If it's either cheap or has chocolate or ice cream in it, then I'm sold. I think the reason I got this was because A. it had a great name. Princess Cake. B. it was dirt cheap. At just $1.29, this was one of the better deals for a dessert that I've seen in this town. So a Princess Cake is basically a little ball of ice cream with raspberry jam and white cake. On top of all that is a green-ish yellow fondant that covers it. Imagine the color of tennis balls... it's exactly like that. Mmm.. tennis. And really, nothing works up an appetite as something that makes me think about women that grunt. Oh Maria Sharapova, I'm so glad you do that wonderful thing you do.
I think the Princess Cake is pretty awesome especially for the price. Who doesn't like ice cream + cake together? And they put it together for you in a small package so you don't have to worry about over-consumption. Save your binges for something else. But while we're on the topic of Ikea. Has anyone out there had any experience with their wooden bed frames and latex mattresses? I hear they're all the rage now.
