Still in search for the best strawberry shortcake, this time we’ve tried one from Bakerzin.
Definitely better than River Gauche’s one. Bakerzin’s strawberry shortcake has more of the creamy taste. The usual combination of cream spreads (pardon my terminology, may not be the best), strawberries and sponge cake, the cake is soft and the cream is light. Not a lot of strawberries underlying between the cakes though and after several spoonful bites, you just feel as though it’s just another similar one.

At the same time, Bakerzin is having a monthly promotion with their blueberry cheesecake, 50% off regular price. Promotion ends this October 2009. So, we bought another extra cake.
I am not used to eating really soft cheesecake, Bakerzin’s one seems to taste so. Be warned: I’ve chilled it before consumption. It has a very thin and insignificant crust base, so the salty-ness from the crust is missing. Somehow I like the blend of salty and sweet in cheesecake which subconsciously reduces the “jerlad-ness” from the cheese.
I think so far Lester’s mum recipe is still makes the best cheesecake. If want you really some sweetness, especially when you are making a plain cheesecake, you may consider putting small amount of white chocolate. It just make the taste thicker and fuller.
