My mom and I stopped by the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse recently, to celebrate her birthday. We had already eaten lunch, this trip was strictly for dessert!
The birthday girl got a slice of tangerine tea gingerbread cake, served with orange sauce and five-spice whipped cream ($5.25):
(The photo does not do the cake justice, sorry!)
My mom likes spice cakes, so I wanted her to have a chance to try the gingerbread at the Teahouse. I think it was a hit; she's now talking about adding spices to the whipped cream on our pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving...
I went for the flourless chocolate cake with Persian spiced dark chocolate ice cream, candied roses and rose syrup ($6):
Yum. The cake was wonderfully gooey inside, and I thought I tasted rose in the ice cream...
Both sweets were enjoyed, along with steaming cups of chai, in the wonderful atmosphere of the Teahouse.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
