Spoonful Celebrates Our 1st Birthday with The Ultimate Birthday Cake!

What a year! This Thursday, we’re celebrating Spoonful Magazine’s first year as a publication with an awesome celebration at one of Philadelphia’s best culinary destinations: Reading Terminal Market!  As a gift to this great food city and its suburbs that has supported us through this year, we’ll be unveiling the Ultimate Birthday Cake, a towering cake crowdsourced from a nationwide survey asking Americans to rank top birthday cake flavors. Baked by Elizabeth Halen and her award-winning team  from Flying Monkey Bakery, this beautifully behemoth cake will be made with 160 eggs and 15 pounds of buttercream frosting, and contain eight different flavors, layered from top to bottom in order of popularity according to the survey.

So, what are America’s favorite cake flavors, anyway? According to our survey of 500 people, they break down like this:

  1. Chocolate 
  2. Cheesecake 
  3. Chocolate Chip 
  4. Vanilla
  5. Red Velvet 
  6. Marble 
  7. Carrot 
  8. Lemon 
  9. Coconut 
  10. Funfetti 

Frankly, we thought funfetti would be much higher on the list, but the people have had their say! 

If you live in or near Philadelphia, please do join us this Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 11a.m. at Reading Terminal Market in the Center Court seating area across from Flying Monkey Bakery. After we unveil the Ultimate Birthday Cake, visitors can enjoy complimentary cake (which flavor will you be hoping for?)!
