Souper Jenny and the Giant Cake


Now, I am NOT the resident foodie on this blog- I am actually the anti-foodie as I am both gluten and soy-free (imagine how much fun I must be on a date!). But I had to take this opportunity to rave about the gluten-free cake they are now selling at Souper Jenny. I will let the resident foodie blog about Souper Jenny more in detail another time, but for the un-indoctrinated, it is a soup, salad sandwich shop that sells fresh lunch- changing their menu each day depending on what is seasonal and available. They send the menu out each morning to their listserve.

So, today I decided to run and pick up lunch and a piece of the gluten free cake they mentioned on today's menu. Turns out that the cake is baked by a private baker, Mary Harrison. I tried looking her up online, but did not find her. HER CAKE IS AMAZING. The guy at Souper Jenny cut me a GIANT piece the size of my head, and as I type, I am almost done with it. It ia seriously the best cake I have every eaten- it's official name is Mary's Lemon Icebox Cake. Well Mary, I don't know who you are, but I love your cake. Even for those who can each regular, real-people cake, this one is delicious and I doubt you could tell it is gluten-free. I would have tested that theory if I didn't just eat the whole thing.

Thanks for the reminder on Souper Jenny! I hate that their hours are so short during the week, but I actually work in Buckhead now so that's no longer an excuse. The cake looks good! I can imagine being GF being quite a challenge, I bought gluten-free waffles from Trader Joes by mistake and they were awful

Too bad Souper Jenny is all the way up in Buckhead. I'd love to try the cake - especially because I have some friends who can only eat gluten-free food. I'll try to keep it in mind when I up in that area of town. I'd love to have giant piece!

That cake is very good. I am still waiting for them to post it on their menu again.
