After eating at Suika we wanted to go to Sweet Obsessions for dessert, but unfortunately the shop did not have seats so we ended up at True Confections. I have been to the denman location a couple of times, and I really enjoyed their Hazelnut Mousse Cake last time. We got the Dark Belgian Mousse Cake and Black Savannah Cake. Both of those I haven’t tried before.
Dark Belgian Mousse ($7.95): Flourless dark chocolate cake, piled with chocolate mousse and shards of chocolate.
This flavour and the hazelnut mousse cake were quite similar. I actually liked the dark belgian one more than the hazelnut because it was more chocolatey. This cake is really rich, flavourful but yet not overly sweet. I can say this is one of my favourite desserts in Vancouver as it was also a fair price for the portion. I did not eat the whipped cream at all though. Hearts: 9.2/10
Black Savannah Cake ($7.50): Angel food cake in Bavarian cream and Kahlua, Served with 3-Berry Sauce
It was my first time trying a Savannah cake. Last time my friends said it was not good so I did not get it. But I was glad I did this time because I liked this A LOT! Savannah cake has an interesting texture. It was like a moist spongecake, with chocolate flavour. I don’t usually like any kind of berry sauce but I ate a little with the cake because it was a good contrast. Hearts: 9/10
