Simple Pleasure Sunday: Chocolate Marquis


I've been wanting to try this particular independently-owned bakery, Cakes & Confections, a couple towns away for awhile now. In fact, I even installed patronizing the establishment as an item on my spring bucket list this year. I finally visited it on Wednesday. After our doctor's appointments, my mom and I had lunch and a dessert there. Even though my roasted chicken club deli sandwich on wheat was great, I had come set on trying the chocolate croissant ...but a few of the decadent chocolate mini desserts caught my attention instead. I decided on the Chocolate Marquis, which was a small round confection of thick layers of chocolate mousse, thin layers of chocolate cake, covered with chocolate ganache and topped with a swirl of more chocolate mousse and tiny white and dark chocolate curls. It was delicious. Every last bit of it!


I highly recommend this place for breakfast, lunch and dessert, so here's the info...

  2. It was so scrumptious that I forgot to take a picture of the inside!

    I dined out tonight and they had a large cake of it in the restaurant's display case. I knew where it was from! I selected coconut cake instead of my usual chocolate.
