Refreshing and well-constructed, the cake was a delightful interplay of crunchy seedless watermelon, light cream, and moist fluffy sponge fragranced with subtle rose flavour.

The thick slab of watermelon, and additional topping of watermelon tipped the balance off slightly in feeling more of fruits with a side of cake rather than an integrated cake. Thicker sponge:watermelon ratio would have likely done the trick. If comparing to the OG, also found that more almond dacquoise and topping of pistachio nuts would have enhanced the nuttiness to contrast with the berries. Overall, solid version of the original @blackstarpastry cake that came short in certain areas but still enjoyable in its own right.

They kindly offered us their cookies to sample and both the dark chocolate sea salt and pecan cookie were light and airy, crisp, and highly addictive.
