Sweet Obsession

July 27, 2014

Lemon cheesecake - 2+

J's comment > very creamy, rich and moist; lemon flavor present but not too sour; could have used more crust though, the crust present was also not crisp, soft for sure, borderline soggy but as there wasn't much of it to begin with, this was OK

Carrot & Roasted Hazelnut Cake: Carrot cake w roasted hazelnuts and raisins, w a cream cheese topping - 2

J's comment > not bad; very moist cake, but definitely one of the healthier cakes; lots of raisins that were just scrumptious, not much carrot flavor, but carrot shreds definitely present; cream cheese frosting creamy and almost fluffy, but could have used a lot more of it

Financier: Mini almond cake (plain, raspberry & chocolate) - 2

J's comment > moist but on the dense side, kinda like a lighter butter pound cake; despite the different flavors featured, all tasted the same; the sparing additions (raspberry & chocolate) needed a lot more in quantity to make a difference

(clockwise from top)

Cloud: Chocolate & almonds - 2

Shortbread - 2

Rugelach: Cinnamon, walnuts, chocolate - 2

Ginger lemon - 2

Moon Cookie: Chocolate chip & pecan - 2

Linzer: Hazelnut, raspberry jam - 2

J's comment > the moon cookie was the best of the bunch, crisp and crumbly, crumbled pecan texture definitely present; the others were all OK, all of them on the soft side, the flavors advertised present, but not exciting
