Truffles cake

"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

Join us!


The car cake (again)

Hubby was nagging my older brother to get even a cheap auto insurance for his car last time we were home. I bet it's because he knows how much repair the car needs. He's been telling me that it really needs tuning up. If only cars are baked like how they did in this video then it would be much easier. lol. I've posted this video 2 years ago but still find it amazing until now. I bet this tasted good too (they were kind enough to include a list of ingredients). Yes, 5 kilos of cocoa powder! :D
