REVIEW: DEMI’s DESSERTS

Hello!

I received these lovely cakes from @Demi’s dessert, A company that specialises in gourmet desserts.
I was sent two cakes:

  1. Two Cheese Cakes with Strawberry sauce
  2. Lait white Chocolate gateau with Apple and Caramel filling.

Demi’s dessert have been in operation since 1988 making baked goods, celebration cakes and various pastries using the latest and modern method. The dessert line was later incorporated into the selection of goods they have. The company is run by a trained baker/patisserie chef.

The cakes were delivered to my office on Thursday morning and as soon as it was delivered I decided to take pictures, because they looked so yummy and I couldn’t guarantee that I wouldn’t finish them before the close of day.

I first had the cheese cakes because they were smaller. The cheese cakes came with a strawberry kind of sauce. The Texture is comparable to Jam or Honey.

TASTE: The cake was very moist and the cheese tasted fresh which I liked. The crumble beneath was also yum. The best part of the cheese cake was the strawberry sauce that came with it, Soooooooo sweet. I literally finger licked the cup above.

Just before the close of day I cut the main cake below i.e the white chocolate gateau, and I wasn’t disappointed. I had put it in the fridge all day and the consistency was just right when I was ready to have a slice.

The best part of this cake was that I could taste every flavour and filling. The caramel was not diluted with the cream, every ingredient complimented each other perfectly. The white chocolate and apple taste were very evident. DSC_1228

My overall experience with Demi’s dessert was a 9/10, and the reason they didn’t get a full 10 is because I felt they could improve on the stickers & packaging. Also I also think they should have a website where prospective consumers can see their gallery and past work. However, Their cakes are too delicious for branding to hold them back, hence my rating.

I can confidently say that Demi’s dessert is one of the yummiest cakes I’ve ever tasted!

NOTE: When it comes to reviews, I like to be very honest. Any company that contacts me for a review is also aware of that. However, if a product or service offered/sent to me is sub-optimal in my opinion I won’t review it on the blog. The reason is I don’t think there is a point in tarnishing the image of a business. Instead I mail back the company and let them know my displeasure and areas in which they may need to improve.

WEEKEND ROUND UP + O.O.T.D

IMG_1594Hello all!

Hope your weekend went well? Mine was rather eventful. I went to church, attended a wedding and also went out with a friend to Yellow Chilli. I finally had the ‘almighty’ Sea food Okra and pounded yam(Not poundo) from there. Before I came to Nigeria the hype has been so much about that particular meal…so when Taiwo invited me out I was excited to give it a try. The food was good and the service was Excellent. Our server ‘Nerngyu’ was so polite and prompt with our orders. I liked the ambience, the people and the food was great. I got full rather quickly..However the bathroom didn’t do it for me……it was a bit untidy and dark.IMG_1475


Moving on to saturday, I attended a friend’s wedding…….she invited me on short notice and having cargoed all my boxes(still waiting on them) I didn’t have what to wear. I had to buy a new dress. I went to a boutique in Ikota shopping complex and in like 5minutes I found a dress. The sales girl made me wear the dress before telling me the price, I should have refused…… upon trying the dress it fit like a glove so I had to buy it regardless of the price….But it wasn’t too bad…. I attended the wedding with my friends Obum and Mayowa. It was fun and I caught up with lots of people from my Alumni….IMG_6224FullSizeRenderIMG_7451

IMG_8161Today I had a meeting and also had to do some work for my dad at the office….Here’s what I wore. I know its been a while I put up an Outfit post. Please bear with me………as soon as I sort out my luggage I’d resume fashion blogging and videos..

JUST FOOD: FEAST

DSC_0720Hello!

Today my brother, a friend and I went to a buffet restaurant to have dinner. Tope is leaving back to school in a few days so I thought to take him out…… I’d miss him *sobs*. I love food and dining out is one of the ways to my heart…

I try to eat out at least once a week and also a new place every time. This time I went to this buffet place my friend introduced me to, it’s called ‘FEAST’. The food was good, the staff was courteous and ambience was rather warm and cosy. I filled my self well, from starters to dessert. I had crabs, shrimps, ice cream, Singapore fried rice, egg fried rice, beef, chicken in black bean sauce, and fruits to step down lol…Tope has spaghetti withlots of dessert. It was worth every penny spent. I rate the overall experience 9/10. All you can eat including drinks costs an estimate of £50 for 3 people, which I think is OK. DSC_0714DSC_0715

AKARA ! (PICTORIAL)

DSC_0070

Hello!

Hope your weekend went awesome! Mine was quite eventful. I woke up on Saturday morning craving Akara i.e Bean cake. You all know my love for pap i.e Ogi, and I think there is nothing more satisfying than Pap with any bean delicacy; Ranging from moi-moi, palm oil beans or bean cake. So I decided to go with the latter. The cooking is quite easy, but the preparation process is the main task. You have to soak the beans for a minimum of 4hours then peel off the brown part/skin, before you blend and fry. I would make a video later this week on it for my YouTube community, but a lot of blog readers in Nigeria complain about videos and the internet struggle there, so here is a step by step pictorial for you lovelies! Do enjoy!

DSC_0040 DSC_0045DSC_0049 DSC_0051 DSC_0053DSC_0058 DSC_0070I enjoyed my meal and I hope you will too! tweet or tag me when you make yours! Follow me on Instagram/ Twitter .

Have an awesome week ahead!

FOODIE: CHINESE EGG FRIED RICE

IMG_7960Hello!

So its Friday night and I decided to stay home and cook a meal! A fast one as usual. Which is Egg Fried Rice. This meal is cooked with already boiled rice but cold, so you cook the rice about a day before and store in the fridge. “The golden rule of stir-frying rice successfully is to always make sure the cooked rice is absolutely cold”. If you try and make it with freshly cooked rice, “it goes all sticky”. This makes sense because freshly cooked rice is actually moist, which is not ideal for this kind of stir fry technique.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYCwmdNrbXg&w=640&h=360%5D

INGREDIENTS

Vegetables|Onions|Oil|Eggs|Cold Rice|Salt|Soy Sauce

1. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan on high heat until smoking, then add the vegetables.

2. When well steamed, Add the Rice, stir till well blended.

3. Add eggs then stir until its absorbed into the rice, then continue to stir-fry for a couple of minutes until some of the rice has just begun to caramelise and toast.

3. Add soy sauce, black pepper and salt to taste.

I served mine with diced plantain and fried chicken. How would you have yours? and what are you doing this Friday night?? do let me know, I care 🙂
