Red Velvet Cake @ Novotel, Visakhapatnam
Sink your teeth into this heavenly slice of red velvet cake and transport yourself to dessert paradise. Made of red sponge cake and layered with a cream cheese frosting, you can choose either a blueberry or strawberry topping based on your preference. Top it with a pistachio flavoured macaroon garnishing and a white chocolate leaf.
Panna Cotta @ FSM, Visakhapatnam
Panna Cotta is the Italian phrase for “cooked cream”; so this is an uppercase ‘YES’ for all you cream lovers out there. With a lightly sweetened cream mixture that is set with a teeny bit of gelatine, the texture of this dessert is thick without being jell-o like. Exceptionally light and with a silky feel to the mouth, Panna Cotta can be flavoured with a wide variety of ingredients and tastes best when topped with a layer of blueberry or strawberry crush. Whatever your choice of flavours may be, the richness definitely comes from the cream that makes up the base of the dessert.
Chocolate Passion Cake @ Taj Gateway
A chocolate lover’s delight, this one is fluffy, rich brown and crunchy as well. With walnuts inside, the cake has a liquid chocolate center and is again doused with chocolate. Served at the right temperature, the chocolate melts all over inside your mouth, leaving a delightful taste you’re bound to dream about later!
Trifle Pudding @ Baker’s Castle, Visakhapatnam
If all the goodness of life came in layers, then a trifle-pudding would be the end result. An all-time favourite, this three-layered pudding has a delicious sponge-cake base, custard in the middle and a generous topping of fresh seasonal fruits and jelly. Best served chilled, the trifle-pudding is Vizag’s sweet answer to the sweltering heat and makes you wish summers last longer.
