Laurent Boulangerie Patisserie, Chadstone by Bureaucrat

A cake that's worth eating is one that is multi-layered, multi-textured and has an "ooh" factor about it - and cake at Laurent Boulangerie Patisserie ticks all these boxes.  It was the knowledge that I'd get to indulge in such utter refined goodness that made the inevitable road rage that comes with trying to park at Chadstone Shopping Centre worthwhile. 

With a trusty buy-one-get-one-free dining offer from the 2017-18 Entertainment Book (which we're promoting to fundraise for SecondBite - buy your book here) the Lawyer and I kicked back in the Parisian salon surrounds to enjoy some cake and hot drinks.

Laurent Boulangerie Patisserie, Chadstone, berry rhubarb cake
I'm a sucker for anything that's red in a cake.  So I got this gorgeous berry mousse cake that hid an inner sanctum of gooey rhubarb puree.  This was light and fruity.  While this was nice it wasn't as good as the strawberry shaped cake that you get at Brunetti's.

If I'm a sucker for red cakes, then the Lawyer is sucker for all things chocolate.  Of the two cakes, this was easily the best.  This was a simple chocolate cake - just chocolate on chocolate - but it was beautifully rich, smooth and not overly sweet.  We loved the creamy mousse-y cake, the ribbon of chocolate that surrounded the cake and the crunchy meringue batons on top. Simply sublime.

We also got a cappuccino and a pot of earl grey tea to go with our cakes.

Hi Nean, good to hear from you :)
Yup, every now and then we like to mix things up a bit here. Over the years, the blog and the Crew have gone through a few metamorphoses which is what is happening now!
