Do you remember a couple of weeks ago, the first time we came to Manchester, I told you about Patisserie Valerie and how I'd been drooling over all the wonderful cakes in the window? Well today I caved in and bought one to take away. It was difficult to choose just one as they all looked so beautiful .
It came in it's own little cardboard box, inside it's own little carrier bag so I managed to get it back to the boat undamaged.
It had layers of a very light chocolate sponge separated by a bottom layer of cream laced with chopped strawberries and kiwi fruit and an upper layer of beautiful gooey custard. It was half covered with a thin chocolate ganache and topped with a fresh strawberry and a blackberry and was D E L I C I O U S.
