South Mumbai patisserie offers special Valentine's Day cakes
Macho moustache or luscious lips. Take your pick from La Folie Patisserie's His and Her cakes for the Valentine season. Any which way, you won't be disappointed
What's the connection between, chocolates, strawberries and Valentine's Day? Well, nothing much really, except that just as love, chocolates and strawberries make the world a better place too. So, when we hear that La Folie has introduced a special valentine's menu, we decide to drop in and taste their His and Her cakes, which make use of the two flavours.
Desserts for 'Him' and 'Her' at La Folie
Imagine our surprise when we are greeted with a cake with a big, macho moustache on top. The 100 % Chocolat is a cake made using Venezuelan chocolate mousse and our spoon slides in smoothly as we go for a bite. Complementing the smooth texture of the mousse is the crunchy and crispy praline feuilletine and the delicious chocolate fondant underneath. No wonder, it's a big hit with us.
Luscious lips reach out to us as our attendant places the Rouge Velour in front of us. The eggless dessert looks absolutely beautiful and we don't feel like disturbing its pretty, scarlet red exterior. But we go ahead and do just that! The Lemon Genoise cake is light and lemony, layered with the goodness of strawberry compote.
We are not a fan of overly sweet desserts, but this one has its heart (and sweetness) in the right place. The light Chantilly mixed berry crème Philadelphia lends it an added charm and we are in a state of bliss. Those lips are definitely worth devouring!
Each of these cakes are available for Rs 1,950 for 700 gm. There are special delivery services between Juhu to Cuffe Parade
