Christopher's Cake Shop - Mascot

Christopher's cake shop

I've always had trouble with pronouncing 'Baklava' and hence, I will typically just refer to those yummy turkish sweets made of pastry and nuts (yummiest is pistacchio or caschew I think :P) and drenched in syrup.

On one awesome occasion, my partner bought over a WHOLE TRAY of Baklava from Christopher's cake stop (medium tray - $18.50).

Baklava

Layers and layers of filo pastry, which are extremely moist and light, with lots of chopped almonds... all super soaked in syrup. Omgosh - it's sooooooo rich and really rather super sweet. Well worth the calories or whatever you're comsuming.

Christopher's also have lots of other cakes and slices and my partner swears that the Tiramisu is absolutely awesomeness! Guess I need to go there and try again one day :)

Love baklava, but a whole tray...woah! Remember I got a piece years and years ago from a place which took me 2 hours of nibbling to get through just because it was so, so sweet =p

Hahaha
yeh - definately sweet and syrupy.
But really quite yummy :P
I think that this one is lighter and less dense compared to the normal ones.
