Goodwood Park Durian Fiesta is back, from 24 February to 31 July 2014 and this year they have a few new products. One of which I was very eager and excited to try and review the Durian Gula Melaka Roll.
There was a durian combo set as a promotion at the start of the Fiesta period. The combo set consists of their signature, all time famous and popular, Durian Mousse Cake and Durian Puff. There were two puffs per combo set. And of course, their new creation, Mini Durian Charlotte, Mini Durian Donut and Durian Malay Cake and not forgetting to mention the Durian Gula Melaka Roll. I bought two sets of the combo. One for my family and the other for my brother’s girlfriend.
The Durian Gula Melaka roll, has the look of a typical swiss roll. The sponge cake is gula melaka flavoured and it has durian mousse as the filling. This combination is exciting and innovative. I was very keen to try it out. Personally, I feel that the gula melaka did not blend well with the durian. As both the key ingredients are sweet, the cake was overpowered by the sweetness from the durian and the gula melaka. I was a little disappointed. Nevertheless, I applaud the bold creation.
I wonder how would coffee and durian pair.
