Caramel & Chocolate Brownie Cake
Chocolate pecan brownie, caramel cremeux and caramel Bavarian

Totally haven’t been updating since I’ve been so busy with school and exams! But I’m back! I’m guessing they usually have specials that they have for a certain time, since they had a chalkboard with specials written on it. And of course I decided to try something new and special! Here’s a Caramel & Chocolate Brownie Cake. It’s supposed to look much nicer than this, but unfortunately I had probably swayed the box around too much, which I guess wasn’t the best idea… But hey, it still tasted great! The caramel made it a little more special than just regular chocolate cake, although I found it a little sweet for my personal liking.There were also pecans at the bottom which gave the cake a great crunch. Be sure to try it out before they aren’t on the menu anymore!

Sweet William’s Dessert

Cookie

I honestly do not remember the full names of any of these desserts, so I know my captions really suck. My friend and I had originally wanted to go to Thomas Haas, but when we got there, we were disappointed to see that they closed on Mondays and Tuesdays! And of course, of all days we chose, we decided to go on a Tuesday. And what better way to satisfy our dessert cravings by Urbanspooning what was nearby. We found Sweet William’s Desserts had a high percentage of  “likes” so decided to go there. Took us quite a while to find the store and realized it was inside City Square, and that it was actually part of the Food Court. We had really thought it was its own boutique of some sort…. But we were there anyways, so decided to give it a try. We were greeted by a friendly woman who was prepping to make more desserts. We decided to try an assortment of desserts and got these. My friend and I, however found them quite sweet, and they were just okay. Nothing too fabulous about them. Looking on ubranspoon now, I realized that they might be more specialized in making cakes and paklova, so perhaps we should’ve tried those instead. Maybe next time when I’m at the mall! But I don’t think I would go so far just to grab some sweets here again.

Waves Coffee House (Steveston)

I usually go to Blenz or Starbucks for coffee-type drinks, but decided to try out Waves instead. Went to the one in Steveston Village and found that the place is really cozy and comfy! A great place to have a nice chat or just to chill at night. Not a huge coffee drinker, and was craving some desserts as usual, so decided to try their brownie! I was surprised that it wasn’t at all as sweet as I had imagined it to be though! Quite good! I really want to try the huge assortment of paninis and sandwiches they have for lunch next time though!

My Waffle Cone! Chocolate Fudge Brownie & Cookies and Cream

If you ever have a chance to go to San Francisco, check out the area called Haight Ashbury! It’s really funky, and hippie-like, but that’s whats so interesting about it! It’s got tons of boutiques and restaurants, and of course one of their tourist attractions is the Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop! The ice cream here is a bit pricey, I must say, but it is just so creamy and irresistible! They also have smoothies and sundaes that you can’t get in the freezer aisle in grocery stores!
