It has often been said food has a way of transporting us back to the past. And I think it’s the same with cakes. They, too, have a way of tapping into our memory bank like no other.
For instance, my earliest recollection involving these confections was during my 7th birthday. I remember becoming mesmerized by a gorgeous white cake in front of me and how heartbroken I was at the same time when my cousin smudged its glorious icing.
That memory was still very much alive in my head when I took this exquisite Inspiration Fresh Cream Cake by Tous les Jours out of the box. I made sure that the edges remained untouched and the over-all design, unaltered.
I can’t even begin to narrate the horror I must have felt, if for some sloppy reason, this particular Tous les Jours Artisan Cake got destroyed in the process!
Any Tous les Jours fan would know that you don’t just buy a TLJ Cake for the taste but also for its over-all concept. For one, I like how the Inspiration Fresh Cream Cake comes in a classic heart-shaped design bursting in red and white!
When I finally had my piece of the cake, I can’t help but feel comforted by TLJ’s soft, moist chiffon cake bearing its signature sweet ‘n’ tangy taste. On the contrary, my nieces and nephews found the cake too sour for comfort.
“It’s the yogurt…” I explained. “It’s an acquired taste, alright. But once you get used to it, you can’t help but ask for more.”
For some reason, I saw them finish their share and before long, they even asked for a second, third helping- and even apiece for later… 🙂 🙂 🙂
