What Sweet Momma's Creates is Magical

I was given the opportunity to review a cake in a jar from Sweet Momma's Creole Confections in Thiboudaux, LA. Blown away! Not just any blown away. Crystal sent me a flavor of her choice. She sent me Coconut and Almond Buttercream. I do not like coconut shavings, the texture - none of it. Period. I admit I was hesitant to even try it, but my love for almond anything and CAKE outweighed my dislike of coconut. I took the first bite expecting a gross coconut cake. (I'm sorry Crystal for saying that.) After taking that first bite, my eyes rolled to the back of my head. IT. WAS. AMAZING! I ate the whole thing in that one sitting. (I can't believe I'm admitting to that.) I may have also received the cake at the perfect moment. You know how you have one of those days where your food groups consist of sweet junk, salty junk and sweet and salty junk chased by a huge glass of.......well you get the picture. I received this cake on that day. Good girl Crystal. Timing is everything!

I have heard people say that their palates begin to dance after tasting something and I think, "How cheesy. Can you exaggerate anymore?" I get it now. The icing is sweet. The shavings add a delicate touch of texture (imagine me saying that?!). The almond - I'm biased so I will [almost] always love it. In this case, it works. I refrigerated it when I received it and it was still smooth when I ate it.

Sweet Momma's Creole Confections would be the perfect gift.  For what? you might ask.  Here are some gift ideas:
  • Weddings: It would make a creative cake concept - Cake in a Jar - or a favor or both.
  • Bridal or Baby Showers: The jars are a great jumping off point for decorating and simple too.  Create a centerpiece or a prize for the games.
  • Military families: Crystal offers a 15% discount to military families. Gotta love her for honoring our service men and women! She also ships to your loved ones overseas.
  • For those days that your food groups include cake, cake and more cake chased by a glass of......again you get my point!
