So, last week you ladies helped me b/c I was having a hard time deciding which cake to order from Flying
Monkey...Black Velvet, Peanut Butter Cup, Guinness or Flourless
I ordered a small Black Velvet cake on Wednesday to
be picked up Friday. Flying Monkey requests 48 hours for orders. I stopped by the Market before catching my train
home. I watched them look through all of their orders, check the refrigerators and flip through their order book frantically. Unfortunately, there was a mix-up and the cake was never baked.
I didn't have time to wait for a new cake to be baked (there
was a train to catch), but there were tons of apologies and the ladies
at Flying Monkey offered me a dozen cupcakes on the house to make up for
the mistake. I took home four flavors: black velvet, espresso, peanut
butter and Irish cream. I have split a few of the flavors with mr erbur and still have quite a few left. They were wonderful! The black velvet is still the best, by far.
What could have been a negative situation turned out well, thanks to their quick thinking. I still need to order a cake from them; mr erbur's bday is in a few weeks and will probably do it then.
