Litchi de Sampaguita

Litchi de Sampaguita

Apart from the lychee ivory chocolate mousse, the core of this cake deserve some attention. A combination of real lychee chunks, jasmine cremeaux and vanilla dacquoise makes this different from a regular log cake. The overall taste was refreshing but too much of it can be cloying.

Apart from Caprice de Banana featured in our previous post and Litchi de Sampaguita, Apple Riveira is the third alternative available at Gourmet Carousel (which we did not try). The latter consists of Granny Smith’s apple mousse with milk chocolate cremeaux and apple compote on chocolate Victoria’s sponge.

Each slice of log cake costs $7+ while a 750gm log cake will cost $48+.
