As I said before, not only Taky’s serve great cakes but you never know which ones are going to be on the menu on any particular day.
Which means that my students have learnt to expect surprises on certain days

Taky’s Marron Tart is a creation for the pleasure of adults more than that of younger customers.
The cake is lacquered with a thin layer of rum scented syrup.
Marrons/Chestnuts are also marinated in rum.
The combination is sweet but not overwhelming.
The chestnuts lay on a marzipan layer flavoured with Creme de Marrons jam with a deep accent of vanilla essence.
The bottom pastry was obviously baked beforehand to a very fine crisp layer adding a solid base to the whole cake.
To be savoured with a strong coffee or black tea!
