I’m a cake person and it’s my kind of dessert every after meals, sadly I can’t eat it on a regular basis because it takes longer for me to reduce the calorie intake. Anyhow, my sister and her boyfriend gave me a ice cream cake from Caramia (Caramia is the same heritage of the large Italian restaurant chain of Amici) and it was my second time to try out an Ice cream cake. My first was from Bake and Churn.
The Choco Tortuto has 2 flavors, the top flavor is strawberry with pieces of cherries and bits of walnuts, I’m not a nut person and I prefer my ice cream plain. The strawberry was just okay though, it has a very subtle taste to it. The ice cream below is chocolate gelato which was very much flavorful and I enjoyed it more over the strawberry. But the 2 flavors compliment each other well so that is a good thing. The chocolate ganache that covered the whole thing is bitter chocolate and the chocolate sponge cake was not too sweet, not dry either which is what I liked about this cake.
I checked out their site on how much this costs, and it’s pretty cheap around P690+ pesos.
I have a long list of my favorite cakes, but the top of my list would be BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE! YUM~ What’s yours?
