Mother’s Day means we pull out all the stops for Boomer, and “pulling out all the stops” means a fancy-schmancy cake from Chez Alice in Princeton.
Boomer selected the “Pink Passion”, which is layers of sponge cake with passion fruit and raspberry mousses. This is kind of an adventurous choice for us, but the rationale was that we have so much chocolatey dessertage here at Maple Hoo that it was worth it to try some flavors we don’t often make for ourselves. And it was an excellent choice — the mousses are tart and tangy and fruity and fresh, and the whole thing is light and smooth and heavenly.
Good thing I accidentally ordered a pizza-sized version of this — we’ll be eating it all week!
