Le Cavalier Noir at the Chess Piece Pâtisserie & Cafe

Le Cavalier Noir at Chess Piece Cafe and PatisserieThis was almost too pretty to eat.

The Chess Piece Facebook page says of this dessert: “Le Cavalier Noir is a decadent cake made with layers chocolate sponge cake and praline royale (hazelnut and milk chocolate), enveloped in bittersweet dark chocolate mousse. The entire cake is glazed in dark chocolate, and garnished with our chocolate chess piece logo.

But the girl at the counter just said, “it’s CHOCOLATE“, managing to convey in one word that this was not just any chocolate, but the absolute pinnacle of chocolate-ness it is possible to achieve on Earth.

She was right.

Go eat one, now.
