THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A flaky pastry covered in caramelised sugar and filled with sliced apples, cinnamon and raisins - that’s Apple Strudel, a signature dessert from Germany. If you want to indulge in some yummy and exotic sweet treats, head straight to Vivanta by Taj where you will find a spate of desserts from around the world. You will find all the popular and unique varieties right from apple pie, the quintessential American dessert.

At the promotion, aptly titled ‘Desserts from around the world’, you will be treated to an array of ethnic delicacies.

While creme brulee from France contains rich creamy custard topped with a layer of crunchy and slightly browned caramel, banoffee pie, a popular dessert from England is a pie made of bananas, cream, toffee and chocolate.

Skyr, which has been a part of Iceland cuisine for over thousand years, is a yogurt-like sweet served with sugar and fruit. Brigadeiros, a truffle made of powdered chocolate, condensed milk and butter, is eaten at all major Brazilian celebrations.

The menu also has names like sachertorte, a dense but not overly sweet chocolate cake from Austria and lamingos, an Australian dessert made of yellow sponge cake, chocolate and coconut flakes.

You can also go for basbousa, the semi-sweet semolina cake from Egypt or vattalappam, the cardamom spiced coconut custard cake from Sri Lanka.
