Caramel Opera

once again, my photo doesnt do justice to the cakes. chocolate person i am not, and even if i am, i love my chocs with nuts. almonds, hazelnuts, macadamia and what have yous other than walnut.

i bought the caramel opera out of curiosity. curious in that i wanted to know how rich that glossy layer was and how does caramel cake taste like.

kept it in the fridge for 1 day and little did i know, a surprise awaited me that day when i took it out to eat. what impressed me about the cake was the rich layer of chocolate fudge (if that's what you call it) was still smooth and melty when i staked it with the fork. it didn't harden even after 1 day in the fridge!! the cake is made up of these:

a thin layer of choc mousse
a thick layer of choc cream
a similar layer of sponge cake with loads of nutty bits
and the sequence repeated itself

it was in short, delish! the layer of sponge with nutty bits was in fact very moist and oozing some sort of liquid which i forgot what it was, i think it was coffee. cannot remember.

and i like that they had some gold dust on the chocolate coated coffee bean. nice! for the 25% discount, it was well worth it! :D
