True Confections Torch’d Devil

Cafes Dessert Vancouver

In partnership with Foodora, the much-loved neighbourhood cake cafe, True Confections, will be offering their Torch’d Devil Hot Chocolate from January 31st to February 6th.

I have been in love with True Confections’ cakes for as long as I remember. Introduced by my sister as a kid, I’ve always looked forward to late-night sweets over a long conversation. Obviously, if you don’t want to get this, they also have tons of other cakes, pies, and drinks available (including coffee and liquor) on their menu.

Wow. Their Torch’d Devil hot chocolate is so gorgeous that it’s jaw-dropping. As it arrives, I see that it’s topped with a whole slice of their famous Devil’s Food Cake! This old fashioned cake is normally layered with dark chocolate cake and chocolate mousse, topped off with marshmallow icing.

Instead of the classic Devil’s Food Cake, however, the staff pipes the marshmallow icing around the entire rim of the mug, and on the top of the cake, decorated with large shavings of dark chocolate. The marshmallow is still soft, sticky, and sweet to the touch, and pairs very well with the rich hot chocolate underneath. The combo with the cake, however, may prove to be a bit difficult for some people to finish if they’re not a big fan of sweets.

The hot chocolate and the cake are separated for better eating.
How do you eat it? Here’s a hint: Separate the cake and hot chocolate so it’s easier to eat.

The wonderful thing about this dish, though, is that it transforms the classic hot chocolate. With the icing at the rim, you will always have the perfect mouthful of torched marshmallows and hot chocolate with every sip! The Belgian dark chocolate is just beautifully smooth, and it has the most decadent chocolate flavour I have experienced so far in Hot Chocolate Fest.

If you want to get the ultimate hot chocolate experience, download the Foodora app now, and order for Pick-Up at their Denman location. In addition, if you would like to dine-in, rather than take-out, add a Note in your order letting the staff know (or you’ll end up getting take-out containers instead).

Happy drinking, everyone!
