Continuing my reminiscing of the wonderful cruise the wife and I took in January, with one of my favorite (atleast visually) desserts from the cruise – a molten chocolate cake. We had this on our second night on the cruise, and after a nice soak in the hot tub watching the JETS win, I found this little gem to satisfy my late-night sweet tooth.
The dessert itself is cookie-cutter – an average chocolate cake filled with some chocolate sauce, topped but some strawberry syrup and a piece of hard chocolate – pretty standard fare for a cruise dinner. The visual presentation of the dessert was good, however (like most of the desserts served onboard, I must add – they do an excellent job of making up for the actual quality of the food!) – shaped as an orb with ridges running along the side of it, with the red syrup strikingly flowing down one side of the dark brown base. Nice.
The taste was quite alright too – the strawberry syrup didn’t really taste like strawberry, but the chocolate inside the cake did taste like chocolate so I was satisfied. For a dessert on a moving vessel at 11pm at night, this was not a bad choice.
