Mont Blanc Cake at Cafe Azuma, Sydney

I’m definitely not a cake person. But if I was given a Mont Blanc cake, I would literally hug the person. I love this cake! I tried it in Japan a couple of years ago and I fell in love with it straight away. The cake is very simple, its chestnut puree, cream, it can either have a sponge cake base or short crust pastry base.

The guys at Azuma Bakery, Sydney just raised the game in making cakes. I have got to say, the Mont Blanc is near perfect. The use of shortcrust pastry, at a glance, looks very dense and dry, that it wont crumble in your mouth, but, they do! There is a simple filling of whipped cream in the middle the chestnut swirls on the top and peeled whole cooked chestnut on the very top.

For you guys who have no tried this cake before, you should. The taste is amazing. Its not too sweet and its not too heavy too on your palette.
