Raspberry Cheese Cake - Canele
i bought the raspberry cheesecake as well. i was attracted by the fresh raspberry and the pretty creamy topping so nicely curved and 'twirled' :)
however, the cake isn't for me. though that layer of raspberry thicken puree was nicely sour and i love it lots, not only coz i can taste the wonderful aroma of the raspberry after the sourish kick, it stays in my mouth for a prolonged moment. nice!
the cheesey layer is a tad too much and somehow, the chocolate sponge with nuts layer at the bottom doesn't exactly blends well overall. the cake becomes rather gelat for me after eating only half of it. it's not a very big cake as you can see, rather slim and long. but quite a feat for me to finish eating.
i still have one small portion (about 1/12) of it as i am completing my entry. too rich for my liking, sadly.
