Some patissiers, when they design their cakes, show more good sense than others.
I don’t know how many times I found myself digging into a cake’s various layers encountering vastly different textures and ending up in a mess on my plate.
Le Cafe-Labo In Shizuoka City achieved the perfectly balanced confectionery when they came up with their new strawberry cake, Fraisee.
Between two thin layers of Genoise/French short cake a mixture of custard cream and butter cream provided enough solidity to enable the spoon or fork to smoothly cut through the whole cake and bring a satisfactory portion to the expecting palate.
The strawberries inside, although untreated, had been so well chosen that the spoon did not meet with any change as far as the texture was concerned.
The strawberry coulis, the dried strawberries, the blueberry and the icing sugar enhanced the whole cake with the exact amount of sweetness and elegance!
A cake to be savoured slowly!
