Chocolate fudge cake

Note that the serving portion shown in the picture is not the actual size of the cake. The actual portion is about 2 to 2.5x of what is shown in the picture. However, this is the portion of each cake if one orders the dessert platter (small - $25, premium - $30) which consists of bite size "petite" cakes and some others specially made for the platters, e.g. macaroons, chocolate balls, etc.

Opus Deli has their chocolate fudge cakes served in 2 versions, Original ($2.30) and Dark ($2.70). When eaten back to back, there isn’t a distinct difference between the two and we thought that the chocolate fudge is alittle thin to bring out the goodness of chocolate.

As for the chocolate sponge, it is closer to what Lana Cake Shop offers; a little dry cake sponge with a thin layer of chocolate fudge. Depending on what one looks for in a chocolate fudge cake, I would say this is worth a try for chocolate fudge cake fix for its convenient location and that they sell it in sliced. Yuan however felt that the it would be better if the layer of fudge is thicker.

For a quick recap, we thought that the chocolate fudge cakes from the following places has the mentioned niche,

Lana Cake Shop
The most consistent old-school taste since Ms. Violet Kwan has started

Jane’s Cake Station
Jelly-like chocolate fudge

Creamy chocolate fudge with extremely moist chocolate sponge

Awfully chocolate
Allows a reduction of sugar (up to 5%), relatively moist sponge

Laurent Bernard Chocolatier
On the sweet side but the richest chocolate fudge
