There's this part of Paragon that I try to avoid...and it's the basement quarter where Chalk Farm is at. Everytime I walk past it, I invariably walk away with a couple of their cakes in hand. I have no self-control when I'm at Chalk Farm, and it's doing terrible things for my resolution to lose weight. At this rate, I'm just gonna have to resign myself to letting out all of my pants.
Of all Chalk Farm's cakes I've had, the Salted Caramel Macadamia Cake ($8.50 per pc) is my favourite. The crumb cake was moist and dense, and smeared with oodles of indulgent salted caramel butter cream. This was just as luscious as it was dreamy.
The Hubs isn't as big a fan of salted caramel as I am, so his vote goes to the Blackcurrant Cheesecake ($9), a wonderfully balanced and sumptuous confection smothered in a thick layer of berry compote.
