Here is my honourable mention :
a soft, fondant green tea Ouroboros cake served with mercury mint leaves
A soft, fondant Ouroboros cake is here, looking absolutely tempting.
A teal coating of fondant with emerald shadowy details forms a loop,
defining the curvaceous shape of a coiling Ouroboros biting its own
tail. The fondant is beautifully texturised with thousands of floral
scales slightly dusted with emerald and beige hued sugar fragments.
Sculpted emerald eyes of sugary dust are set on both sides of the head.
The generous coating of fondant envelops deliciously soft and moist
green tea flavoured cake of a jade green. Carefully placed upon one side
of the cake are mint leaves faintly glistening with mercury while the
few others are dispersed on the sides of the dark clay platter engraved
with serpentine scales underneath the cake.
Flaunting utensils, you neatly slice through the generous teal coating
of fondant, revealing the soft, moist jade cake underneath. As you carry
a first bite to your lips, you are overcome by the delightfully light,
soft and creamy texture of the cake which almost instantly melts on your
tongue. Closing your eyes, you languidly enjoy the luscious, fragrant
whirlwind of green tea laced with faint minty details and an
undecipherable mineral bouquet. Each bite enables new nuances to be
tasted and a flourishing desire for more. You delicately place branches
of mint leaves glistening with mercury within your open lips and savour
the cool liquid woven with the refreshing mint.
You approach the cake and deeply inhale while closing your eyes. Sweet, delicate mint and green tea
perfumes laced with a honeyed, faint metallic note overwhelm your senses, leaving you with a brisk
desire to sate your hunger.
Glancing right, then left, you break a small piece of the cake while no one is looking. You bite
into it and languidly savour the sugary fondant mixed with bits of spongy, moist green tea cake,
discovering its faint flavours of mint. The taste slowly fades until you are left with an insatiable
hunger for more.
