The Real Thing - Double Cream
Well well well, this is the right thing to do!!! This is the real thing about double cream. Enjoying the real thing is what most important to me. It's fresh, it's creamy, it's smooth, it's sooo...... DOUBLE CREAM!
People asked me how did I bring back the cream since no liquid allowed on board the plane... I took a risk packing the cream in my cargo bag , wrapped with layers of plastic bags and put it in a cooler bag with some ice packs! Well, it's was rather long story..... I bought quite a lot of other stuff and brought them back safely, wish I could brought back more!! Really never had enough of London!
Beside the Japanese fresh cream, this should be the one I love the most. Or rather, I must say both Japanese and the Brits double cream have little differences. I said they are different in terms of texture, colour and taste. Japanese is kind of light and more refreshing. Also, when it's whipped, it's less solid compared to the Brit's. Colour wise, the Brit's has got more yellow tone than the Japanese. So when comes to decorating cakes like strawberry shortcake, the Japanese cream score better marks. Frankly, both are great. They are what I call the ' Real Thing' . That's why it make the scones taste so good with this double cream. I made some scones to go with the cream, and it was almost close to the ones I had while in London. (Though my scones texture are not quit near..) After I have finished this precious tub, I'm gonna miss it again.
