Proof is in The Pudding owned by Isabelle Bach and she's also the head baker. Proof is in the Pudding is a Bespoke Boutique Bakery delivering all around Melbourne and proud them self of only using the highest quality ingredients with the utmost detail. They also caters to various dietary requirement and ready to work with you to satisfy your needs.

I was so excited that they finally opened a small cafe at their based in South Yarra. I went in on the first day of January, might as well begin the new year with high quality desserts. I'm a big fan of old school baking since I grew up in one of them. I message Isabelle on Instagram and she gladly say that she will be open that day. We did have a nice chat over her creations, movies and many more.

Almond Ganache Torte - flourless dark chocolate cake infused with flake almonds, topped with a thick decadent layer of Belgian couverture ganache($9). This cake is perfect for chocolate lovers, very rich maybe best to be shared if you are not up to rich chocolate flavour but so delicious.

Milk and cookies - baked fresh to order with a bottle of chilled milk ($9). Isabelle suggested the red velvet stuffed nutella and the butter milk cookies so we went with it. She said the buttermilk is her favourite. We do have to wait around 20 minutes for the cookies cause it's fresh from the oven and I don't mind at all. The cookies was amazingly delicious both buttermilk and red velvet, both are so soft and warm with perfect balanced flavour.

We can't stand our self so we decide to take away some desserts as well; Red Velvet ($8) and Snickers Brownies ($4.5). The brownies was delicious and I added a scoop of vanilla ice cream to go with it. My husband loves the red velvet cake, moist and flavourful but not too sweet. Isabelle did mention that all her cakes are created to stand for almost a week, she tested it her self. If it does not taste as good by the end of the testing, she will start a brand new recipe. I do admire her dedication.

The milk and cookies stuck in my mind until days after and  as you probably would guess I'm back there again within a week. Love their XXX cookies, sorry no photos it's gone before I remember to take any pic. The ginger cookies was also enjoyable as well as the other cakes such as Belgian Chocolate Espresso and the friand.

I'm officially a big fan of Proof is in The Pudding and will come back for more cakes, cookies and more of Isabelle's creations. Everybody in my house also loves her creation and it's definitely our first choice for any ocassion.
