Afternoon Refreshments

It all started with an acknowledgement of something. Then, the craving hits you. It was ignorable at first, but the more you ignore it, the more you want to have it. Your fingers are all fidgety and you can't help but to pull up a sour-looking face. The fact that you're starting to act and behave like Smeagol, obsessed and tormented, is deniable. You want to be with your precious, just like Smeagol and the ring. But this time, it wasn't the ring. It was the cupcake.

A nice red velvet cupcake ready to be enjoyed

Congratulation for Gudang Rottie for their new dessert, the almighty Red Velcet cupcake! My cousin, Nuning, and I went to the cafe, and get ourselves some drinks and a plate of this beautiful cupcake. The red velvet was topped with a generous amount of cream cheese and cake sprinkles, which made the two of us flustered on how to consume such dessert. 

Gudang Rottie's Red Velvet cupcake tasted sweet and very enjoyable. I'm certain that the chef used a handful of Javanese Sugar, or Palm Sugar which most of you are probably familiar with, because you can definitely tell it from the sweet flavor of the cake. You won't notice the palm sugar during your first few bites though. But the last five bites would be a bit disturbing, as you try to recall what flavor the cupcake is for those who aren't familiar with such type of sugar. 

The swirling cream on top of the cupcake was cream cheese, mixed with your regular cream so that it won't taste far salty or savory from the cake itself. I was a bit disappointed though, because I was expecting some cheesy cream. This one tasted more like a vanilla cream. The cream sure smelled nice and sweet, but at certain parts you can definitely smell the tangy cream cheese.

Just look at the cream and cake crumbs, generously decorating

I was not in the mood for a glass of Gudang Rottie's famous Iced Chocolate Volcano, so I ordered myself a refreshing glass of Lychee Iced Tea. I don't usually drink lychee iced tea, but when I do I get addicted. It was very refreshing, fairly cold and sweet. The drink maker generously added a couple of sliced lychee to the drink, making it look more attractive and more refreshing.  

Lychee Tea, my second favorite tea after Lemon Tea

I spotted some lychee!
