Chocolate Caramel Silk Torte – Dulce de leche caramel surrounded by silkly smooth Dark Chocolate Mousse
  • 6/10
  • This cake was too sweet
  • The smooth dark chocolate was a little too rich for me and it got even more rich with the addition of dulche de leche caramel
  • This could have used something crunchy or different texture or flavour to brighten it up or cut down the richness

Chocolate campfire (dairy free): choc cake with toasted Italian meringue
  • 6/10
  • This choc cake tasted like it was out of the box – very light and fluffy and not too chocolatey
  • But more importantly it didn’t taste gluten free
  • The Italian meringue on top was a nice touch to balance the choc cake

Lemon Meringue Tarts – lemon custard topped with a toasted Italian meringue
  • 7/10
  • I enjoyed the sourness of this tart
  • The tart was nice and crisp – it cut really well and wasn’t too sweet, bonded well with the lemon custard
  • The Italian meringue was similar to the one used on the chocolate campfire cupcake

Lemon Slice – lemon custard tart with White Chocolate blossoms
  • 7/10
  • The lemon custard tasted really similar to the lemon meringue tart
Fudgy Brownie – dark chocolate brownie with white chocolate chips
  • 7/10
  • The fudgy brownie was decadent and luscious
  • It wasn’t too sweet but the white chocolate chips were kind of strange – it tasted somewhat chalky
Chocolate Almond Florentine Bar – toasted sliced Almond bar with a hint of orange dipped in Chocolate
  • 7/10
  • The hint of orange was accompanied the Almond bar well
  • It was chewy and sticky, the almonds went well with the chocolate
Summary: Baked goods were okay but more importantly if you didn’t tell me that they were gluten free I would have never known. It’s a great alternative to other bakeries.
