Eating for 2!!?? – Cake overload

Right after picking up Chesca from school, I headed over to Fleur de Lys in Quezon City to buy some of their Florentines (the thin cookies coated with chocolate I talked about in one of my previous posts).  But as I was about to pay, I suddenly felt a bit hungry and of course, what was in front of me??? A lot of cakes!  I was only planning to buy 1, but ended up buying 3!  hay-yai-yai!!!  Well since I was there, might as well try some right?

There were too much to choose from so I asked for their bestseller. This is what they told me. So I decided to get a slice. Best Kept C-Cret – P115/slice.   It had cream, sponge cake, almonds, custard, and hint of chocolate in it. It did taste good but I liked the 2nd cake I got better.
Cake #2. Their version of banoffi pie called Dulce-Banana Tart, P120 each.  This was what I really liked. Liked this version better than starbucks or bannaple’s. This one isn’t that sweet. I’d recommend you to try it out.  Sorry for the crappy pictures (again).
Cake #3 was what I was excited for coz I’ve been looking for a good strawberry shortcake that can be bought in small portions. This is called Strawberry Fields, P120 each.  Unfortunately, it didn’t taste good. I didn’t like the cream. After the first bite, I couldn’t take another (nakakaumay is the Filipino term for it). The sponge cake wasn’t that yummy as well. Or maybe it wasn’t as fresh as I had expected. Baby Yulo’s Strawberry Shortcake still tops my list.

To sum it up, I’d go back to this pastry store for their Florentines and Dulce-Banana Tart.  But then again, this is just my opinion and my taste buds 🙂

It was a day filled with too much cake “taste testing”.  Again, I blame it on the hormones!

What about  you, what’s your favorite cake?

Eating for 2!!??-Roshan Ice Cream

I recently tried Roshan’s home-made ice cream.  Cappuccino Almond Fudge.  Thanks to my friend Joan who sent some over, just in time for my pregnancy cavings.  As I took in the first spoon of this ice cream, I was already able to taste the capuccino flavor,  almonds, and bits of fudge…they definitely din’t scrimp on the ingredients.

Here’s the tub of ice cream I got!  🙂   It’s on top of a small pillow covered with a towel on top of my tummy while facing the t.v…
Cappuccino Almond Fudge…no, I din’t finish the entire tub of ice cream…I had self control this time around.
Here’s how their packaging looks like.

They have all other sorts of desserts in their website.  Check it out, all look so mouthwatering.  http://www.homemadebyroshan.com
