Wegmans' Mini Ultimate White Cake


3 tiers of delicious.

On my last trip to Wegmans, I was disappointed that another attempt at sampling their Ultimate White Cake was foiled- I get e-newsletters from them all the time advertising samples of this cake, but usually during the week apparently.  However, I found the cake in a mini form for $6.00 and decided it was worth trying out, after all the self-imposed hype about it. 

The first rule of the Ultimate White Cake is to read the label and let it come to room temperature.  Otherwise you will literally feel like you're eating cold cake with cold butter on top, which is about as appetizing as it sounds.  But once you let it come to room temperature, it's all sorts of vanilla-y creamy richness.  The mini cake is a perfect size for a small dinner party or for a few friends to try it out.  It would be a nice item to bring to someone's house also, if you aren't a baker and wanted to bring a little something sweet.  Looks-wise it also reminded me of a wedding cake (by that I mean 1) It's white; and 2) It's tiered) and thought it would be cute to put at each table if you were having an informal wedding reception, haha.  I couldn't eat this cake all the time since the frosting is v. rich and thick, but I am definitely glad I tried it and would recommend trying this out!
