Are you ready for a lot of sugar? We were confident when we entered Amorette’s Patisserie to pick up two Flavors of Florida treats: Orange Bird Dome Cake and Orange Cream Puff.

Before we look at the big boy, Orange Bird, let’s tell you a little bit about the puffer. That’s beautiful.

This Florida orange-shaped pastry with a straw is a beauty. Flaky orange craquelin hides a heaping portion of orange custard inside. There is also a small layer of honey orange gel hidden inside the cake to plug the hole where the pudding was poked.

I suggest eating it right away at Amorette’s because the puff pastry loses its texture once it’s in the fridge at home.

Although the green leaves are edible, the straw is not. It feels like a missed opportunity, but it is.

Next up is the big and responsible Orange Bird Dome Cake. He’s a big boy. A big, big boy. A boy for $65.

I was surprised at the size of this cake, considering most of the other goodies found during the Flavors of Florida event are compact and meant to be eaten on the go. You’ll probably want to take it home or to your hotel room right away.

This sweet candy features “layers of vanilla chiffon, Grand Marnier simple syrup, tangerine fruit pâté, white chocolate crunchy pearls and mandarin orange cream.”

This thing is full of oranges and citrus. As we pointed out in Orange Bird Nest Review, sometimes you can hit or miss the Florida orange flavor. It’s all hit here.

Crunchy pearls are a welcome addition to break up the cake’s sponge structure. However, I would have liked the pâté layer to be a little less thick. This may have been a problem that stemmed from refrigerating the Orange Bird Dome Cake for a few hours after we got home.

The biggest gripe we have with this thing is the price. The cake costs $65. It’s hard to justify buying this stuff unless you’re local and have a place to chill it while you’re in Orlando. There’s no way you’re going to sit down and eat this thing at Amorette’s Patisserie without five or six other people helping you.
