"There are two types of people who eat truffles: those who think truffles are good because they are dear and those who know they are dear because they are good." - J.L. Vaudoyer
I've always complained how bland the cakes here in Vienna are. Well those that I bought from the nearby store anyway. I haven't tried the ones from the Konditorei (pastry shop) because they don't look that attractive to me. lol. I guess I haven't had the chance to meet the best pastry chef in town yet. So whenever we wanted cakes we order from a Filipina baker who mostly do ube cakes. Her brazo de mercedes filled with either ube or langka is a family favorite but you know each roll costs 15 euros (20$)! So I can't really have them anyday...especially the ube chiffon cake, a 30 x 30cm costs 60euros (83$)!
Yesterday, the kids and I saw this dome cake from another store, I really miss that Selecta chocolate truffles ice cream from Pinas so I bought this one to somehow ease my craving. Turns out this is one of the better store-cakes in this bit-of-a-boring city! The kids (all 3) and I ate this in one sitting lol....oh it was about 12 inches in size! :D
