Home to some of the best musicians in the world, Vienna is more than a place to immense yourself with the classics. Austria was once one of the most powerful European countries and so, it's no surprise that just about everything in Vienna exudes a regal vibe.
Could it be from the magnificent architecture surrounding the city or perhaps the way the locals carry themselves around? So much to comprehend in such a short period of time but for now, let's focus on the main reason I am blogging today: cakes.
Our Trafalgar tour guide brought to our attention how many types of cakes are available in Vienna, much to the dismay of my waistline. First up, we visited Aida which is a popular franchise that started in 1913. Be amazed at the array of cakes available - extremely hard to make a choice.
Apple strudel was on point in terms of having the right amount of filling enclosed in the puff pastry. Paired with a good serve of vanilla sauce, this would be a perfect dessert in winter.
We had the truffle torte, a rich but still pleasantly light piece of chocolate cake.
On a side note, prices of cakes can range from 4-5euros depending on where you order it. Not overly expensive in comparison to Australian standards - be sure to save up some loose change for a slice of royalty!
