"This cake layers soft vanilla sponge with a gloriously pungent durian mousse made with rich, bitter D24 durian pulp. Cubes of sponge cake sprinkled with icing sugar make a pretty topping." (ST: 2008)
This is the 2nd time which we are reviewing this cake. This is after trying numerous durian cakes and desserts. The verdict? There is no doubts no others can beat this durian mousse when it comes to tasting like the real thing. As shown in the photo, we tried it together with the real thing. Of course, the durian mousse cake tasted a little creamy compared with the fruit but overall the taste is pretty close.
Apart from feeling durian pulp in this cake, the other strength lies in the light chiffon used in this cake. It is so soft and lightly sweetened with icing sugar. In sum, this is the next best thing apart from the real king of fruits.
Each slice of durian mousse cake costs $8.50+.
