Last week, you voted for your favorite dessert from my Co-Op catalog. I’m happy to announce that there was a tie, which means I had an excuse to order two desserts instead of just one! The Marron Tart and Belgium Chocolate Cake arrived on Wednesday, and the reviews are mixed.
The Belgium Chocolate Cake had 3 layers: 1) fluffy chocolate cake, which was still dense enough to match the creaminess of the next two layers 2) sweet and creamy chocolate mousse with a strong milk chocolate flavor 3) a layer of pure semi-sweet chocolate!
I was so surprised. Despite being frozen, this is one of the best chocolate cakes I’ve ever had. Perfectly sweet chocolate decadence with a great mixture of textures – fluffy, smooth, and creamy. Now for the Marron Tart…
The tart filling wasn’t very sweet and tasted very natural, which highlighted the flavor of the marron, which was a little bit dry (probably because it was frozen). The marron tart would pair well with afternoon tea whereas I would serve the chocolate cake after a flavorful dinner. My husband liked both desserts equally, but I definitely preferred the chocolate cake. Thanks to you all for your votes!
