One of my families stops in Florida is a little place called Seaside. This is a richy-rich little community that we like to visit and pretend we actually live in but know good and well that we can’t afford the 500 square foot, ocean view house that is somewhere around $1.2 million. But one can dream. And we also like to visit all the quaint shops in the area. Lots of restaurants, clothes boutiques and art galleries.
There’s also a fun little store called Modica Market that sells some of the prettiest and unique food you’ll ever see. The shelves are loaded with imported oils and canned goods. The deli and bakery cases hold the most mouth-watering sandwiches, seafood, cold salads, cakes and baked goods you’ll ever lay eyes on. Pretty much, you want one of each. Of everything.
I, of course, chose two slices of cake, one called Sunshine Orange Cake and the other was Caramel Cake. The caramel cake was three layers of a super dense golden vanilla cake with the most yummy caramel layered in between and all around it. The Sunshine Orange Cake consisted of three layers of made-from-scratch orange cake, layered with orange buttercream and topped with white chocolate ganache, orange whipped cream and mini white chocolate chips.
These cakes did not disappoint and we savored every bite! Good thing that place is nowhere near where I live or I’d be in trouble. Next up…Tommy Bahamas!
