Pumpkin Loaf with Espresso Chocolate Icing


Want to know what's better than cake? This
Pumpkin Loaf with Espresso Chocolate Icing!


Chocolate ooooozing over the edges


I wish I could take credit for making this but I
bought it from La Collina Fine European Bakery


Instead of celebrating with cake for my Mom's birthday, I
 thought she would enjoy this sumptuous dessert loaf instead 


I always see her eyeing it in the bakery's display case each time we
go in for tea, so of course she was thrilled to have it on her birthday :)


Cutting into the loaf


 I'm trying to think of some articulate phrasing to describe how good 
this tastes, but holy sh*t it's not even funny how delicious this tastes


You know that question people like to ask, "What's the last
 think you'd want to eat before you die?", well this might be it! 


Which brings me to an even better question...


La Collina Fine European Bakery on Urbanspoon

Question: What would be the last food(s) 
or meal(s) you'd want to eat before you die?

I think I just died. This loaf looks heavenly and all I can do is drool over my keyboard because there is nothing like this here.

Under other circumstances the last food I would want to eat would probably be something like this. Now that I am living away from home, the foods I crave the most are those from my childhood so I'd choose something traditional for my country.

This loaf looks freaking amazing ajkghdsklfasd.

The last food I'd like to eat would probably be a hearty, homecooked meal, definitely.

I'd start with a small, but sweet, Bugs Bunny style carrot and move on to a thick chunky peanut butter & honey sandwich on moist, soft whole wheat bread with warm pecan pie and Edy's Loaded Cookies 'N Cream (I don't care that they discontinued it) ice cream for dessert.

It looks delicious! And what an interesting question... I would have to say I would probably have seafood risotto and crepes with honey for dessert mmmmhm :)

I would want my last meal to be homemade pizza and ripe, in season, tropical fruits!

That looks damn good. I've never been to La Collina but I might have to go just for that.

That icing sounds ridiculously amazing. For real.

My last meal? Probably some sort of Mexican food with cookies for dessert. I'm big on simple pleasures. :)

That is a tough question ... I think I would have Bee Bim Bop with all the kimchi in the world.
