Today we had a special treat - we were lured into the European deli right next to the supermarket and after much contemplation (trust me there were a whole lot to choose from) decided on this beauty:
The cake was not too sweet and not too heavy with strawberry jam and cream amidst thin cake layers, and the dark chocolate made a perfect topping. It was a heavenly accompaniment to the strong orange pekoe that we enjoy with a little bit of condensed milk.
These pastry and cakes are sold by the pound and you can ask them to cut out exactly how much you need. It's such a great idea because you can get small portions of a variety of pastries to sample or when you are entertaining on a short notice.
