Spring is Coming, Strawberry Shortcake & Soy Milk Gelato

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I count my blessing everyday to have the ability to enjoy sunshine and the beach whenever the mood takes me. What is better than a brisk jog at the beach to keep one's physical and mental health? It is so refreshing to take in fresh ocean air and just sit there for a few minutes enjoying a lovely semi-warm afternoon.
Of course after my jog, I ruined all the good work by visiting Cafe Blanc in Cost Mesa. Yikes. Let me just say this piece of strawberry shortcake is to die for. It is so light, I almost don't feel guilty. Normally I am not a frosting type of gal but this whipped cream top is not very sweet at all and fluffy light I almost licked the plate afterward.
Had a cup of coffee to wash down the cake. Ah... it is so nice having afternoon tea or coffee.
This is the first time I tried soy milk gelato. It is not sweet at all because there is no sugar. It is rather flaky. I guess because there is no cream or sugar to keep everything together and creamy. Don't forget to change your clock for those living in the US and have a wonderful rest of the weekend. ~xo SG
