Traveling? Prepare yourself. Pink Cake is not available everywhere. Sure, New York has better bagels, but where's the Pink Cake??? And we'll wager that the pizza they brag about in Chicago is tastier, but bet they don't have Pink Cake. Granted, Seattle did the coffee-house thing before we did... but do they have Pink Cake? Hell No! So tell those snobby, grungy, humid, long-haired java-junkies to jump off a space needle if they dare to even breathe a comparison of True Culture and Cuisine! Pure and simple: Pink Cake rules. Available at many fine restaurants and bakeries, but the best is at: La Mexicana.
