WEST SEATTLE SCENE: Instantly iconic cake

In case you haven’t already seen this at Bakery Nouveau … the photo and report are from Vlad:

I just got back from a takeout at Bakery Nouveau, and they had this funny toilet paper roll themed cake in the display case. A bit of levity during the strange period we are living through. The store has a good system for physical distancing and the food is still as tasty as ever, even when taken home to consume.

BN is of course on our ongoing West Seattle (etc.) food/beverage takeout-and/or-delivery list.

      Per their Instagram, butter cake with vanilla madame cream.  $35 each, available in limited quantities at all 3 stores.  :)

        Odds just one person buys them all simply to hoard?

    Really funny when you know what it is, but otherwise it’s just a gorgeous minimalist cake.

      There was a bakery in New Orleans selling those two weeks ago.  Glad that caught on here too.  We all need some levity during these scary times.

    Wife and I were there today. Cake had a sign on top reading $400. That’s real bathroom humor……..but so funny.

    As a recently laid off employee, I can tell you: this isn’t levity; it’s a company that isn’t taking this seriously, doesn’t care about its employees, and is only interested in scooping up whatever profits it can before enough of its employees and customers get sick to get them shut down. Toilet paper cake isn’t essential. Imagine getting exposed and this is the vector point. Hilarious. What levity.

      I find myself agreeing with you in general.

Sorry, comment time is over.
