PHILADELPHIA, March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ultimate Birthday Cake, crowdsourced from a nationwide survey asking Americans to rank top birthday cake flavors, was just unveiled by Spoonful Magazine.
Made from 160 eggs, 15 pounds of buttercream frosting and weighing 71.5 pounds, the towering cake contains ten different flavors, layered from top to bottom in order of popularity according to Spoonful Magazine's survey. The top flavors, in order of popularity are: Chocolate, Cheesecake, Chocolate Chip, Vanilla, Red Velvet, Marble, Carrot, Lemon, Coconut and Funfetti.
"The Ultimate Birthday Cake is our gift to foodies," said Kristina Erfe Pines, founder and publisher of Spoonful Magazine, the independent home cooking magazine that conducted the survey in celebration of its first year of publication. "We owe our first year of success to the incredible support we've received from food lovers across the nation."
Created by millennial foodies who initially developed recipes and story ideas from a dining room table in suburban Philadelphia, Spoonful Magazine celebrates home cooking, small-batch artisans and the value of simple home gatherings in an increasingly frenetic world. Spoonful was named one of Media Industry News' Top 30 Hottest Magazine Launches of 2016.
The magazine's staff unveiled the Ultimate Birthday Cake March 30, 2017 at Philadelphia's historic Reading Terminal Market, so visitors could enjoy complimentary cake once it was sliced into more than 300 pieces. It took 12 hours for Elizabeth Halen and her award-winning team at Flying Monkey Bakery to bake the cake, plus 12 pounds of locally sourced butter.
"There's a lot of hometown pride baked into this cake," says Elizabeth Halen, owner of Flying Monkey Bakery. "To see a group of talented, young Philadelphia foodies share their dream of celebrating the simplicity and beauty of home cooking with a national audience shows just how respected Philadelphia's food scene has become across the country. Reading Terminal Market is proud to celebrate with Spoonful."
