First of all, a heartiest congratulations to Nigel and Allan on their opening of Just Heavenly Pleasures at Epicure, Damansara Heights.
Ever since I saw the mouth-watering display of ohh-so-good-looking cakes in WMW 's blog, I was so captivated with the picture of the Chocolate Durian cake. Being a true fan of Chocolate and Durian, I told myself I got to make a trip to Just Heavenly Pleasures this weekend. Then Lyrical Lemongrass also blogged about it 2 days later and she gave affirmation on how good the Chocolate Durian was! That's it, I can't wait till weekend and I must go on Thursday after work. Heavy thunderstorm around 4 p.m. so I was rather upset being so unlucky. However, clear blue sky as I left my office...YIPPEE!! Called Nigel that am coming but then he told me Chocolate Durian all SOLD OUT!! Can you believe it??? I mean, it's good to hear business is good but but but...sigh. Anyway....told Nigel that I will be coming the next day and requested him to save me a piece of it.
So after work yesterday, I was full of determination..although am unsure where the place is but I didn't care cos I just can't wait to savour this beauty. After several phone calls exchanged between me and Nigel, I finally found the place. All the cakes look so yummy..told myself that I shouldn't be too greedy cos I will be the only one eating the cakes.
I spotted only 1 piece of Chocolate Durian left...and thanks to Nigel, he saved that for me eventhough his earlier customer requested for it. Lucky for him, otherwise, he got to deal with a cry-baby stomping her feet in front of him. Hahaha!
On the same night, I attacked the Chocolate Durian since I have been craving for it. Although I didn't feel like sharing, but my dad was at home, so I offered him 1/3 and he said it's yummy and rich. Hubby is Durian-Phobic + Chocolate-Phobic but he was so brave and took 1 bite since I was raving about it. Erm...he didn't like it as expected. Funny thing was, I had it in our room and I didn't realise the aroma was so great. My room was filled with durian smell after that and Nigel, Hubby wants to know if you are using D24....SO POWERFUL! LOL!!
My colleague requested for a picture of the durian inside the cake. I didn't know chocolate could go so well with durian. Perhaps I should make durian fondue next time. Very rich and each bite was so heavenly sinfully good!!!
I saw my favourite Creme Caramel and I knew this is a must have. Wonderfully eggy and smooth.
Dunno if I should complain on the generous amount of caramel...a tad too sweet for me so I tried not to scoop too much caramel with the custard. Mmm....I enjoyed this very much.
I had this for lunch today...Death by Chocolate which is so deathly rich!!!! A must-try for chocolate lovers.
Using chocolate cake as base, the middle was filled with chocolate mousse and then covered with a layer of rich milk chocolate (Nigel, pls correct me if I am wrong). I made myself a cup of English tea to go with, ooohh la la!!
I also bought a piece of Chocolate Cheese which is still lying in the fridge. My body is so overdozed with chocolate now, and I don't think I can handle anymore chocolate for the day. Tomorrow!! Tomorrow I shall attack you, my dear chocolate cheese, so please enjoy your last day in the fridge cos tomorrow, you will be on a journey...to my stomach!!!! Hehehe...see? The effect of too much chocolates...making me HIGH!!!
So, what are you waiting for? Drop by to experience some heavenly pleasures soon. Oh yah, please contact Nigel before you go to avoid disappointment cos the cold cakes are selling like hot cakes!!
