Death by chocolate. Think, a dense, fudgy base of flourless dark chocolate torte. Top that off with an ethereal layer of rich silky Guanaja chocolate mousse. Rich and lush as it melts in the mouth. The circle of fresh blueberries, with their burst of tanginess refreshes the palate between mouthfuls. Mhmm.. there is a reason why this cake is tiny, about 4.5 inches in diameter.
The contrast between the two components somehow works beautifully together. Oh, not forgetting the mix of bailey’s irish cream, whiskey and kahlua thoroughly infused into the cake. Next is the Guanaja mousse which, despite it delicate whipped texture, packs some pretty intense flavour. The smooth, velvety nature enhances the bittersweet flavours of this indulgent cake. Something which I felt was lacking was a crunch or crisp — maybe a praline feuilletine layer at the base the next time?
