Orange cream cheese mousse with chocolate genoise has the name Valencia and we highly recommend this too since it has a bright orange glaze with chocolate cookie base that is oh-so-very delicious and picture-worthy.  At Mon Delice Patisserie, their cake game is so unique that it tempts you to try every single thing they offer on their menu. And we certainly wouldn’t mind doing that either.
