I was first seduced by a big glass case that was home to five of six very pretty cakes, including a flourless chocolate and a carrot. I was intrigued by the mocha caramel cream, which was already sliced and ready to go in little plastic clamshells.
I'm sad to say that I was a bit disappointed. I could detect no mocha at all in the cake itself; there was a nice coffee flavor in the decorative frosting swirls, but there were only a couple of those. Without the balance of coffee, the overall effect was very, very sweet. The cake was pleasantly moist, however, and the caramel offered a nice richness.
Keep it sweet. Pin It
