The Best Cake in Hamburg

Last Saturday Adolfo, Julia and I tried to go sit by the lake, but as soon as we got there, it started to rain. Typical Hamburg weather, making plans difficult. But there's nothing like a little bit of flexibility. So instead, we went to Cafe Gnosa for a slice of the best cake in Hamburg.

My obsession with strawberries and fascination with the mysterious and delicious strawberries of the German variety made my decision easy. Plus, look at how darn pretty this thing was. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to marvel at it or eat it.

SPOILER ALERT: THIS REALLY WAS ONE OF THE BEST PIECE OF CAKE I HAVE EVER HAD. The sponge cake was so spongey, the frosting was so light and simple, the strawberries were sweet and red with a thin layer of gelatin. And it was all washed down nicely with the yummy coffee service (cookie definitely included).
