The expansion of the Tribute Stores and food offerings in general has been a success for Universal Orlando. They can also be found in some bakery style cases around Universal Studios Florida. Universal company created the classic monster of Dracula and the Mummy.

Today’s treat is the Frankenstein Cake.

The Frankenstein Cake has the potential to be the star of the show in terms of Halloween season treats this year. This cake is $8. I realize it is a cake about a classic monster of Universal, but it is a bit on the cute side.

The cake my friend got had some eyes that looked concerned. Did he know he was about to be eaten? Was he wishing he had lived a better life? We will never know. You must give Universal chefs credit for the appearance of this one.

However, if it fits on a small plate and costs $8 before discounts, then it needs to taste good, right?

The shell is bit hard by design but not as tough as many of the other treats this year. The shell added a bit of milk chocolate flavor to this dish. The top of the cake, the hair I suppose, was a darker chocolate which seems to balance with the cake portion inside and the frosting.

The frosting was not too sweet but as Goldilocks might say “it was just right.”

The cake was flavorful and easy to eat, and the cake itself has been most compared to a type of Oreo cake. However, I am not sure that is the best comparison, but I fail to have a better one. All in all, the chocolate cake, vanilla frosting, and cake outer shell merged into a surprisingly good treat for your sweet tooth.

As you can see from the picture, this treat is a merging of numerous flavors. These are all good flavors but sometimes too much of good thing turns bad. However, for this creation, it works. If you find yourself in the HHN tribute store or near a bakery case at Universal Studios Florida, this a great option. I have yet to hear a bad review of this cake.
