2 beef patties, cheese, bacon, tomato, lettuce. $4.19

This was my nephew’s birthday cake and it looks pretty crazy. He plays soccer, baseball, and track so apparently they tried to fit everything in. I’ll just say that it definitely tasted better than it looked, lol!


Carrot cake – Farallon

Carrot cake - Farallon
Cream cheese icing, buttermilk ice cream, walnuts, fennel. $10
Farallon, San Francisco CA

This was probably the most moist carrot cake I’ve ever had, and that’s a good thing! I will say that with the cream cheese icing and the buttermilk ice cream, it got really heavy after a few bites. I think they could have kept this simpler and it would have been better.
