Cake Wars: High-End Cake Versus Sister-in-Law’s Cupcakes

So I went to my Greek brother-in-laws birthday party last week and Heather, my sister-in law, made some chocolate cupcakes from scratch. She puts them on a glass dish, and tells us all to dig in, to which I obliged.  
Heather’s cupcakes are moist, delicious, sweet, and chocolaty. They are retro-cupcakes. They remind you of delicious cupcakes you had as a kid. Here’s a pix.

Now for my wife’s 100th blog post for her fashion and lifestyle blog, The Chic Files, I decided to surprise her with a cake from Rosie’s Bakery. The cake was decorated nicely with ribbon, purple-colored frosting, and even a high-heel shoe on it. It was a vanilla and chocolate layered cake inside. The cost? $40. You would expect nothing less than a stellar cake for forty bucks, right? Didn’t happen! The cake was dry inside, the frosting was more buttery than sweet, and the frosting to cake proportion was uneven.

When we returned home the night of my wife’s blog celebration, I had a late-night snack. I had a choice between Rosie’s cake and Heather’s cupcakes. What did I choose? Not the cake!
