This Burrito Cake is Burritoful
December 26th, 2013
I like burritos and I like cake, but I’m not sure that these two delicious foods were ever intended to meet. But leave it to some crafty pastry chef to defy logic and make one anyhow.
Yep, that’s not the world’s largest burrito – it’s a cake. It was made by Elizabeth Marek at Oregon’s Artisan Cake Company, and it looks good enough to eat – for lunch. The cake itself is chocolate with peanut butter mousse, but you’d never know it from the outside. The tortilla is made from fondant icing, and scorched with a blowtorch, and the guac and sour cream are made from buttercream. I have to assume the other fillings are all made of sugar, and not actual rice, beans, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and olives.
If you decide to order one just like it, be sure to ask them to make some “salsa” for dipping it into. I’m thinking some mashed up strawberries and kiwis might do the trick.
