True Confections- Not The Best Dessert Place Around ~ Eating With Kirby

True Confections- Not The Best Dessert Place Around

There are a few popular dessert places in Vancouver and True Confections is one of them. They have two locations in Vancouver, one in downtown and one in Kitsilano.

Meta Knight and I were craving some dessert after our fantastic meal at Kintaro, so we decided to head to True Confections to eat more (as if our food baby was not big enough already :P).

I usually go for cake whenever I visit True Confections because I am not a big pie or tart fan.

Maybe this is the cheap Kirby talking, but to me, their prices are not cheap for a slice of cake. 

As you can see, they also serve cheesecakes, banana cream pies, and pecan pies..etc

One of the things I strive to do in my blog is to accurately represent the food I eat (no photoshop, no crazy altered images) and in this case, I feel like I did a pretty good job since it accurately depicts the (giant) size of one of these bad boys. :D

Meta Knight and I shared the Chocolate Orange Cake ($8.75) and it’s a traditional chocolate cake with Grand Marnier mousse. I thought the orange flavour was pretty prominent and the combination of orange and chocolate was pretty cool. However, the slice of cake was sliced so thin that I felt like while it looked huge on the plate, it was actually deceivingly small. After we finished it, Meta Knight and I both thought it was not really worth it and for the amount we spent on the cake, we could have gotten another bowl of gigantic, delicious ramen from Kintaro. X.X

Based on these reasons:
  • not the cheapest dessert out there
  • if you're good at baking, you can probably make some of these cakes yourself
  • convenient location in downtown core

  1. But you did spend like $7 on caramel apple cheesecake at Waraku.

    1. But this one was about $10 with tax which is still almost a 2-3 dollar difference. Plus the caramel apple cheesecake was the bomb while this one fell short.
