Okay, so, under the caption of "Because they were there" - I bought 2 dufflet cakes to try. I had a "review" in last Satuday's good buys section, where the author said they were amazing, delicious, worth the price blah blah blah. Okay, so it's dessert, it's frozen and I hear they're good. Gotta try 'em. I bought a double chocolate cake and a chocolate fudge tart.
The chocolate fudge tart was by far the best of the two, but nothing outstanding. At $10 for a frozen tart, and the comments I had read, I was expecting more.
The chocolate cake was well, umm, comparable to a grocery store bought, made at home box mix cake.
Is it just me? I mean, I know they're frozen, so it's nowhere near Reema's world - and I'm not comparing this to hers, but after reading the review and reading other comments about Dufflet cakes on this board, I was expecting much much more.
Yup, one and the same. It was in last Saturday's Gazoo, in the food section, where they recommend 3 or 4 different items, be they food or cooking gadgets - always left page, left hand side of the page.
They are available at les 5 saisons on Greene (5 saisons? 4 saisons?? man, my brain is mush)
The Dufflet desserts are also at the display case at the front of the dessert/bread department of Les 5 Saisons(at least in their Westmount location). There're not frozen(individual & whole cakes/tarts & etc.). Sample one or two things from them, when Les 5 Saisons first started carrying Dufflet desserts(way before Lesley wrote about it in the Gazette). I thought the Dufflet products were decent(need to try more, to be sure).
The best Dufflet frozen product is definitely the carrot cake... too die for! I bought it in Toronto, maybe they are "fresher" even if they are frozen...
