In the name of research, I had to sample the pride cake, for unfortunately it has been my experience that food once perceived as innocuously colorful in the eye of the beholder turns garish when the taste fails to match up to the visual expectations. Not so at all with this cake, whose layers retained a lovely mild vanilla flavor despite the use of kosher vegetable dye. Furthermore, the buttery icing was judiciously distributed as to create the perfect proportional contrast of smooth sugary cream and moist cake. Such balance would easily facilitate consuming the whole wedge in one sitting. Not that I would know, of course.
