It was my brother's birthday and we got a cake from Rive Gauche. He had requested for something other than fruit cakes, hence, on the recommendation of the staff there, we got the Mont Blanc which costs $36. I think it is slightly less than 500g but since there are only five of us, the serving is just right. The cake is made of vanilla sponge cake with two different layers of chestnut filling and whipped cream. The top layer is the chestnut cream. It is a very special cake and the first cake that I have come across that uses chestnut. It is surprisingly good. The chestnut cream and whipped cream are very smooth and light tasting. It is not heavy at all and it is easy to polish of one slice of the cake. The balance of cream and cake is also appropriate. I could also taste chunks of chestnut within the cream which is quite a nice surprise since I enjoy eating chestnuts. Although the cake is slightly expensive, the taste makes up for it.
