L’Exotique, worth a try !


My main purpose of purchased one litre of whipping cream actually is to make this L’Exotique. My daughter and I tasted this very delicious dessert cake when SweeSan brought for us in a gathering long time ago. I have bookmarked this recipe for so long but hesitate to make it as this recipe sound so difficult to make. When my daughter requested this cake for her Birthday cake this week, then I have no excuses and have to make for her.
