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.
