Black Forest

Black Forest Cake

The Black Forest is one cake that has alot of variations; some consist of chocolate sponge and whipping cream while others are layered with chocolate mousse and whipping cream. This is something very different from what we have previously and has made it to our top of my favourites.

Unlike the sliced form, this is served in a cup consisting of 5 layers, creamy chocolate mousse, kirsh-soaked cherries, vanilla sponge, a thin layer of whipping cream, topped with chocolate flakes.

The winning factor of this cake is the extreme smoothness of the mousse and that the cherries are not overly soaked in liquor nor sour. Since the layer of whipping cream is extremely thin, this combination presents a very light taste and it is no surprise Yuan volunteered to finish the entire cup.

However, talking about chocolate flakes, Laurent's Black Forest certainly triumphs all.

Each cup of Black Forest is $8 nett and 1 kg of this cake is $55 nett. Highly recommended in our humble opinion.

Evan: Hmm... looks like I should drop by Obolo real soon... Their desserts look so lovely... but Joo Chiat is so out of the way for me...

So will you be churning your version of Blackforest?

LIC: SomethingToGo is a deli, they do have a proper shop space... with outdoor seating area... The details of this place will be up on my Saturday post :D

Evan: Sure, definitely wanna meet up for chocolates... Actually, I am curious of Indulgence but it has been ages since I drop by the East...

Yup, not a fan of Korean food... Find it difficult to appreciate some of the dishes... but give me a good bimbimbap, Saba or BBQ meat... That is something I do enjoy...

Hazel: Oh, that I didn't know... but I heard that the high tea at the lounge is recommended... How's the food at Basilico?

Claudine: The hotel is not tat inaccessible... Try taking 36 from Orchard and it stops right in front of the hotel...

Like the flowers too, gotten it from Takashimaya and Yuan called me Evil Fen for snipping them off for the photoshoot...
