Sans Rival - Goldilocks

Remember the post I did on Mamon cakes and the Cassava Bibingka from Goldilocks that Cindy gave me? Well, Cindy gave me another treat from Goldilocks, something new that I've not tried before. Sans Rival cake. Err...when Mrs Pitt told me that she was bringing back the cake for me, she said "Sans Suval". I went, "Huh? Sans Suval?" Then she said "Sans Rival" and I still went "Huh? Sans Rival? Cindy has just told me that Sans Rival means No Rival. Hahaha....I haven't heard of a Sans Rival cake before but I guess I was going to find out how one looks and tastes like that night, thanks to Cindy again :o)

So, exactly what is a Sans Rival? It's made of layers of cashew wafers, frosted with buttercream and topped with ground cashew nuts. So sinful, yet so good (as it usually is with such things!). I can hear the health conscious folks recoil in horror, hahaha! If buttercream and nuts are your kinda thing, then THIS IS IT! My only gripe is that one can't seem to cut a perfect slice without breaking the wafers into several parts! But I think somehow that turn out to be better in the end, as several of us shared a slice, eating it bit by bit with our hands - thus dividing the sin(e). Well, pardon me now - I think I need to go for confession :p

Dividing the sin, huh? Oh, I won't mind dividing the sin too with you, dear. That looks like a slice of heaven, actually, haha.
