The BF got the Opera cake ($3.60) in addition to our usual selection of 6 chocolate eclairs. He usually varies our weekend dessert indulgence by buying a different pastry together with the ubiquitous eclairs.
This was rich and decadent without being overwhelmingly saccharine. This classic French dessert is made up of layers of nutty almond sponge soaked in a light coffee syrup, ganache and coffee buttercream, and topped with a very pretty gold-speckled chocolate glaze.
