Southgate Shopping Complex Ground Level
Orange and Polenta Popcorn – (Vegan & Gluten Free) Orange and Polenta Cake with popcorn and orange frosting.
The cake tasted of lemon and was quite pleasant. The popcorn and frosting, once you shoved the whole thing in your mouth – which was a challenge in itself – was ok. The lemon (or orange as it was supposed to be) needed to be much stronger. All the flavors seemed muted.
Toffee apple – Spiced buttermilk cake, red apple and toffee butterscotch cream
So disappointing – the apple slice on the top was sickly sweet. The butterscotch cream was absolutely flavorless. The spiced buttermilk cake was bland and heavy and should have had chunks of spiced apple through it.
Sticky Date – Sticky date cake, butterscotch Syrup, Vanilla Mandarin Cream
This was the best of the three. The cake was soft, and light, and tasted of dates. The vanilla mandarin cream was light, and zesty without being overpowering.
