Sweet Escape

Current Russia is filled with little cafes like this one.  No, it's not exceptionally cozy, but fairly cheap and convenient.


My mom and I had a latte and a milkshake, in addition to some extravagant sweets:


But the most interesting part was the flyer lying on every table, advertising "New Sweets for the Spring 2010" produced by the largest confectionary company in Tomsk - Antonov Dvor, which conveniently listed its website on the back - if you can read a bit of Russian, you can find even more cakes on their website.

I've decided to share some of these with you - if anyone is interested in the cake descriptions, I can translate those, but just the names are worth it:

Don Quixote

Dark-skinned Girl


Sweet Almond

Pani Eva

Raspberry Bells Ringing

For Two

Almond in Chocolate






Chocolate and cream-cheese
