Cheesecake Tasting

The lovely FW and I drove out to St. Louis Park last night to sample the cheesecake for our wedding. That's right, no traditional wedding cake for us -- we are emphasizing yumminess over vast heaps of fondant (ugh). While Muddy Paws closed their retail locations (bummer), they continue to make mouthwatering cheesecake which you can have delivered locally or anywhere in the country.

The sampling was pretty straightforward: when we arrived at their bakery (at a warehouse in the burbs), we got a slice of their "New York" flavor (a fancy word for plain) to try while we discussed plans and then were sent home with three more slices of our choice (pictured above). We chose Chocolate Decadence, Raspberry Swirl, and Key Lime.

I think this is a great way to do a tasting... you can talk and discuss candidly, without the vendor hovering over you.

(Note: I'm not going to put "Project 100" in the title any more. It was getting old. But I'll still apply the tags and put a note in the body.)

  1. Every day my bus takes me past Muddy Paws former retail location. A little part of me is sad every day that it's not there anymore. Now I want cheesecake.
