Fine Foods (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★☆☆

It's been a while since I last ordered a birthday cake from Fine Foods. Not that their quality has gone or anything but there are just too many options out there, including a couple of online cake shops I like to visit (online) recently.

One thing I've always liked about Fine Foods is that, they always seem to add something new to their repertoire every 1-2 months. Like this time around, they have launched their brand new Lavender & apricot cake.

But we have already made up our minds with this Black Sesame & Chocolate Gateau - Black sesame seed mousse was layered with chocolate mousse on a base of chocolate sponge cake and black sesame seed crunch. Looks real exciting on paper and I was especially curious in how the black sesame mousse and chocolate work together. 

Disappointingly, they didn't mesh as well as I thought they would. The whole thing was quite heavily flavored but without much contrasting textures or flavors to make it interesting.

I'll definitely check this lavender and apricot cake out next time!
