I know everyone’s expecting a beauty entry from me and I do have new stuff to share but I haven’t had time to photograph them yet because my roomie’s mom is here for a week so we’ve both been playing glorified tour guides paid for our trade in what a poor university student considers gold: free meals and the occasional ice cream. We dropped by Brunetti’s yesterday so I’m going to be civil and share some of my old shots of the place plus new ones of the desserts we had – yeah, you can think of this as a ‘filler’ entry of sorts lol. You guys prolly realised from my previous Brunetti’s entry that I am completely inept at remembering cake names so I’m going to stop pretending I know Italian and stick to typing what I can remember about each cake ;p
Biscotti on display!
The interior of the main store at Lygon St which is strategically built 15 mins away from my campus. It’s also a strategic way to get fat if you’re not careful.
Yummy. (And just so we’re clear, I’m not talking about the cakes/interior design of the place meheh)
Nothing warms the bitter heart like a cup of hot chocolate.
Raspberry vanilla cake thing which tasted like it was meant to be ice cream in a former life but someone thought it would be fascinating to translate that into a cake; in simpler terms: IT WAS HELLA GOOD.
Crap I don’t even remember what was in this cake. Can I go by aesthetics alone and guess what’s inside the cake? A triple layer of chocolate, coffee and er more chocolate (??) mousse topped with cream + hazelnuts. God, I fail at life. Don’t judge me, just look at the damn picture and marvel at how awesome it must have tasted mmkay.
The Royale cake (hey hey I finally remembered something!) Hazelnut, chocolate praline and this amazing crumbly wafer-like base = easily my fave chocolate cake.
FRUIT TART. There, that was easy.
The mini profiterole. It’s called a ‘mini’ because they actually sell a version that’s taller than a pair of Louboutins. Mini choux pastry coated in a dark chocolate, filled with a light vanilla bean-infused cream and stacked on a mound of more cream!
The inner workings of an amazing profiterole; just sublime!
