This post is going to be short, but sweet (pun intended).
Have you’ve ever been to a shop and think that some things are too pretty to eat? I definitely get that reaction when I walk into Sixth Course. It’s a dessert, chocolate and gelato shop, but I headed straight for the cakes as that’s usually my dessert of choice. They rotate their selection every season so that you get to try something new every few months.
My friend and I went in after dinner one night and we couldn’t decide on what we wanted so we got 2 cakes! Just a warning – one “slice” of cake is pretty much going to cost you just about as much as a an entree (the carrot cake was $14 and the mother earth was $16). If you’re willing to splurge though, it’s so worth it! Not only are they super pretty and creative, the texture of it is SO soft when you bite into it. Like, incredibly soft. Like eating a cloud of cake soft.
We got the Carrot Cake and Mother Earth and I really couldn’t tell you which one I liked more. If you like fruity, the carrot cake had an amazing pineapple compote and walnuts for crunch. If you like chocolate, the Mother Earth had a nice air-y chocolate cake with a delicious raspberry filling to compliment it. Did I mention that both the cakes are so soft?
So pretty, so delicious, and so worth the splurge!
