Cake review: Cheesecake – T Eten en Drinken

Cake time: 24. 3. 2019

“Not sweet at all—is it vegan?” That was our first response to the cheesecake. Setting aside our apparently strong (and perhaps misguided) opinion of vegan sweets, the cheesecake from T Eten en Drinken was ba said affair. It was very compact with a mediocre taste—like eating old cream cheese. Which is unfortunate because the cake looked very nice, with a seemingly perfect proportion between biscuit and creme embellished by two blueberries on the top. Is it possible we were just unlucky? Maybe it is time to go back and reassess the cheesecake situation.

Cake review: Pumpkin-carrot cake – Pllek

Cake time: 3. 2. 2019

The first thing you notice about this cake is the plating: a slice of pumpkin-carrot cake is served with a pumpkin puree, a scope of mousse and a mint leaf. The cake is rather compact containing walnuts which are—and this is really nitpicking–not distributed uniformly across the slice. It is a bit dry on the edges and bland, which comes as a disappointment. The puree also has an undefined taste. The real star is the creamy, airy mousse. Having a gentle lemony aroma, the mousse melts in your mouth.

While the cake itself is mediocre, the three main components of this dessert complement each other surprisingly well. We confess that the quality-price ratio for this cake is on the low side.
