This was a pretty fancy bowl of fruit! I was very impressed at how many different fruits they included. I was on vacation so that’s why I could justify spending that much on fruit salad, hehe! 🙂

Asiago cheese bagel – Park Rock Cafe

Asiago cheese bagel - Park Rock Cafe
With light cream cheese and fresh fruit (kiwi, cantaloupe, grapes, strawberry).
Park Rock Cafe, Joshua Tree CA

This little cafe is adjact to the Joshua Tree visitor center and the woman who was working the counter was super friendly. This bagel wasn’t the freshest bagel ever, but I appreciated that it came with fruit (which I wasn’t expecting) so it was a great value.

Fresh strawberry cake – Golden Delight Bakery

Fresh strawberry cake Golden Delight Bakery

Yellow cake with white frosting and strawberry filling, topped with strawberries and kiwis.
Golden Delight Bakery, Gahanna OH

Codes had these cakes for his birthday, and they were really good! The cake is REALLY light and I guess they don’t use butter (at least in the frosting?) so it doesn’t taste super heavy and sinful. I’ll admit that I wasn’t a fan of the frosting texture though.
