Kids are so spoiled for choices these days when it comes to ice-cream and special treats, so much so it's no longer special when they're given a treat. Enter Magnum cafe in IOI City Mall, Putrajaya. An upmarket ice-cream cafe with so many frills that thrills one's tummy.

The Trifle was the day's undertaking. I had two free vouchers to savour this delight and was going to pass it up because it looked so sinful. Thankfully I had my mom and sister with me to share the burden of consuming this monstrosity. Behold! Not one, but two Magnum Trifles!

"Cashew Meringue, Mascarpone Cream, Honey Balsamic Cream, White Chocolate Dipped Vanilla Magnum, Freeze Dried Raspberries and Strawberries."

Whoever conceptualized the menu must have had a lots of fun doing it. Heaping spoonfuls of sweet nothings onto an already caloric dessert by itself. Flipping through the menu (and ignoring the price), you can begin to understand why Hansel & Gratel from the Brothers Grimm fell for the witch's evil trickery to lure them into her lair.

If you compare this with the picture in the menu, it is pretty much WYSIWYG, except for the smaller strawberries which no one really gives a damn about :P We loved everything about it and were scrapping hopelessly at the corners of the jar to get the last lickylicky noms out (the the point of contemplating dipping our fingers in to help the kitchen crew clean the jars).

It was indeed a remarkable pleasure, and definitely for sharing.
