Polar Puffs & Cakes

27 October 2009

So much work lately that it's hard to find time to blog. I still have a couple of posts waiting to be typed out but till then here's a short post on a cake that my parents bought for me recently: the Nutella cake. No it isn't my birthday (but if you really would like to know it's on March 25 -smiles-), I was just wondering how it would taste like and they got it for me. So sweet of them.

The Nutella cake definitely needs more "Nutella" flavour to it because otherwise it's just a basic and simple chocolate cake. It actually tastes just like the small, rectangular cake bars (featuring Sesame Street characters, for one) that Polar sells as well. I would certainly prefer the Coco Exotic over this, but if Polar would like a tip or two, here it is: 1) do something about the recipe because the sponge part gets a bit dry after a while, and 2) do a hard, biscuit-like base for an added texture.

About $22.

Haha... I have a big jar just in the kitchen ;)

But I have to watch my diet... Had a couple of heartburn incidents. Man, food blogger with heartburn...

Your parents are so wonderful :)

My favorite cake from Polar is the Fairlady (if I remember the name correctly). It has white chocolate shavings all over it and layers of white chocolate sponge cake. Light and not cloyingly sweet.

Hmm I think I'll do a post on that soon. Your review has inspired me :)

Angeline: Better take care girl! :)

Veron: Yes they are, I'm especially pampered too :)

I did not see the "Fairlady" around, so I'll be looking forward to your post on that. The Nutella cake was just okayyyy, so I'm looking forward to see how the Fairlady redeems Polar.

I realised you used "cloyingly sweet", once a conflictual word indeed haha! (At least we're not going boomz or shingz...)
