Where art meets cafe – that’s The Orange Thimble for you.

Hazelnut Dacquoise

Hazelnut Dacquoise

As this was the 2nd Hazelnut Dacquoise we have tried, the element of surprise was lacking and we knew exactly what to expect from this dessert. A thick layer of chocolate fudge sandwiched between 2 layers of hazelnut meringue. The chocolate fudge was smooth, dense, with its richness enveloping our cavities. The hazelnut meringue exuded a faint nutty taste and complemented the fudge with its crunchiness. Overall, a decent dacquoise, which did not disappoint.

Chocolate Therapy

The Chocolate Therapy was less impressive. It was rather mediocre, a standard chocolate sponge and mousse cake. The base was meant to be crunchy and biscuit-like, but it turned out rather stagnant, possible due to over-exposure to the atmosphere. That caused the cake to be rather stale and unappetizing.
