A chocolate sponge cake that has crushed walnuts as its base covered with thin chocolate flakes? Hell, yes! I’m merely defining this cake from a cake shop we chanced upon while we were at Ecute, a food haven located at Omiya Station. I actually didn’t have high expectations for this based on its appearance. You just can’t judge a book by its cover, huh? I was blown away the minute I let my mouth indulge.
I loved how the walnuts perfectly complemented the chocolate flavor. The chocolate flakes added more burst to the heavenly taste.
The shop Top’s Cake takes pride in its sweets that are made with raw materials and organic sugar. All the more reason why I would love to visit the shop again and try the other flavors.

The level of sweetness wasn’t as high as the Empire State. It was a joy that it didn’t exceed my sweetness limit. Whenever I have desserts I usually get pimples the next day. Surprisingly, I didn’t get a single one after feasting on this fabulous cake. I consider this as the cherry on top. So if you have an acne prone skin, don’t worry that much.
