Dream cake for a wife's dream man
IN MY LINE of work, the ultimate expression of romance involves food. For example, this heart- and tummy-warming request from Sandi Nakama in Las Vegas, whose husband, she says, has been "seriously craving" a dream cake: "There's no bakery on the mainland that I think compares to the ono desserts in Hawaii, but I would love to be able to make a dream cake for my hubby. He works so hard, and the simple things make him happy."
Sweet, yeah? There's more: For her 27th wedding anniversary on Monday, she'd like to bake him the cake.
There's nothing innately Hawaiian about a dream cake -- basically a light chocolate cake with an airy, white frosting, often covered in chocolate curls. But move away, and you'll find many things you took for granted just aren't as easy to find.
