"Pass the salt?" at Canelé Pâtisserie Chocolaterie

Featured in The Straits Times, Urban (July 24 2008) under Posh Nosh, "Slices of Heaven", the Cafe Caramel from Canelé Pâtisserie Chocolaterie was introduced. As usual, that stirs my taste buds alittle... According to the article, the attraction of this cake is the combination of sweet and salty.

Anyway, selling at S$8.50 (excluding 7% GST and 10% service charge), this rich baby consists of milk chocolate coffee mousse, chocolate genoise with expresso, salty caramel and hazelnut feullitine.

I thought this cake is pretty interesting with the distinct taste in different layers. Frankly speaking, I enjoyed this better than the Roulade from BakerZin. Anyway, starting from the top,

  1. A thin layer of bittersweet dark chocolate with a thin slice of milk chocolate + the Canele name tag :D
  2. Chocolate coffee mousse which yuan loves it, smooth with the right amount of espresso
  3. Chocolate cake which I thought BakerZin fared better when it comes to their Chocolate Amer
  4. Chocolate coffee mousse
  5. Salted caramel, either you love it or you hate it... Intended pun whenever I typed this
  6. Chocolate cake
  7. Crunchy hazelnut base which can be found in Le Royale, simply yummy...
  8. Chocolate cake

As obtained from their website, this is how the whole Cafe Caramel will look like. Simply a piece of art..._________________________________________________________________

Yuan's Comments

Cafe Caramel ($8.50): It has sort of a chewy texture, somewhat like the Jamacian Banana from NYDC and has this charred caramel taste. Probably the main attraction of this cake is the layer of hazelnut. I guess you may only like this cake if you like caramel.
