Bakerzin - Stick to your niche please!

My last post on them was June 2007 and back then, my advice to Bakerzin was – "Stick to your niche in desserts and stop diluting your brand with sub standard mains" – I went back 7 months later for their desserts and it is beyond doubt that I am sticking my guns to this statement.

Their signature Warm Chocolate Cake is sinfully delectable. Described as the “melt-in-the-mouth chocolate cake oozing with rich Valrhona chocolate”, Valrhona, founded since 1924, focuses mainly on top-quality luxury chocolate marketed for professional as well as for private consumption. And I would say what a huge difference it made especially since I could evaluate it to the second-rated one I had at Friends@Jelita. Also the warmness of the cake prepared freshly by the chef harmonised perfectly with the cold Homemade Vanilla Ice-cream. What is also often overlooked is the Orange Confit at the bottom that amazingly complements the bittersweet chocolate cake giving it a subtle fruity flavour to it.

Finally rinse it off with the revitalising Lavender Violet Lime that comes in a romantic purple – an Italian soda with lavender flavoured syrup that tasted so refreshing. I like it as it wasn’t very sweet but however, I would prefer if peppermint leaf were used to give it a better lift instead of the lime, as the drink tends to turn bitter towards the end. My friend had the Strawberry Lavender Lime that is very much sweeter but still as good. Definitely a favourite with the ladies!

ty: Yeah, I am blogging from one of the internet cafe in Sydney - but something is not right with the browser. Will need to have a look at the layout once I'm back. What to do - everything and anything for my faithful readers. ;) Thanks! It's been awhile someone complements me on my English - Heh - Love it too!! HA~

brad: Hi to see you dropping by. By range do you mean the price or the types of desserts? Personally, I have tried their cakes off shelf as well as from their menu -absolutely love it - its around $10 to $15 per serving.
