When Svetlana called in this time for a tasting invite we were in for a special surprise for it wasn’t us she wanted to invite but rather our kids who were going to get a taste of what it is to be a blogger. Well this time, team Carpe Diem along with team Indigo Deli had a special dessert treat planned for these bloggers of the future. The idea of a dessert tasting was enough to give us goose bumps and an anticipated sugar rush; but what it was in real to go through that sinful indulgence? – Here’s a short trip to wonderland of Indigo Deli.
Baked blueberry cheesecake – A mild and subtle cheese cake with an overload of blueberry compote, this was a very positive kick-start to the dessert rush lined up. The cheesecake was aptly baked which went in its favor.
Banana caramel pie – An amazing sandwich with soaked chocolate cake on one side and banana drenched in caramel sauce on the other. The whipped cream was just right in terms of sweetness and gave an amazing mouth-feel without over frosting the pie.
Cream Cheese Brownie with Ice Cream – A rather standard affair in terms of recipe but the difference was that these come with a scoop of in-house ‘Nilgiri’ vanilla ice cream. The coffee dusting, chocolate sauce, the in house ‘Nilgiri’ ice cream made it special but the brownie was too dense. I would rather appreciate it more if its fluffy and porous but otherwise taste wise it bags a brilliant score.
Chocolate mud cake – We are talking about desserts and how can one refrain from sinful indulgence; that too especially when you have a chocolate mud cake in the house. This was just what it was meant to be….chocolate overload. #MustHave
Chocolate layered almond cake – A triple layered almond cake with lite, dark chocolate sauce. There was butterscotch sauce and some almond praline that sat atop the cake. This was heavenly in true sense of the word. Just look at the picture below and give me one good reason on how you could resist this indulgence. #AbsoluteMustHave
Apple Pie – The pie was rather a simple pastry of sorts. The texture was mild crispy and the filing was moist with apple pieces and dry fruits. It was garnished with caramel sauce which paired decently. #Decent
The Whiskey Pate – Now that’s one item that is adults only but equally sinful as its distant cousin. Couldn’t really dig into this that day, so will skip this part.
How can dessert treat be complete without a Sunday special? Moving on to the Sundays at Indigo we had some interesting treat lined up in that space as well.
Drunken Waffles – Yet again something that kids will have to be kept away from; for these are hot waffles topped with rum and raisin ice cream, rum anglaise, granola and some fresh whipped cream. My fellow partner in crime simply loved it and kept digging her spoon again and again.
Kinki Suit zette – The nest Sunday in line was made with French toast doused in dulche de leche, caramelized orange, dulche de leche and vanilla ice creams, hot fudge, fresh cream, spiced pecans and bitter orange marmalade. I guess the kids loved this the most that day, coz even after such a high sugar rush they wouldn’t let go a spoon full of this delicacy.
And last but certainly not the least of the sweet roller coaster ride we were having came in the start attraction – the home made ice creams of Indigo Deli. We were served 4 flavours which saw the likes of Blueberry & Mint, Belgian chocolate truffle , Rocky Road and Strawberry Cheese Cake. Now weather these were any better than the sins we had committed so far? Not answering that, go and find out your sweet poison yourself.
The kids had an unparalleled experience that day along with the sugar rush that was all evident; but that day for a change our kids had become bloggers and we were penning down their experiences. It was a sinful experience like no other. Special thanks to Svetlana savant and team Indigo Deli for having us over.
