I was recently contacted by Euforia makers of all-natural thousand layer cakes to sample their gluten-free varieties of this Dutch-Indonesian delicacy.  I have always said that gluten-free and luxury are synonymous and Euforia delivers just that – a luxurious gluten-free experience.  Their high quality confections are not only unique and delicious but they arrive beautifully packaged with such attention to detail that you know you are in for something wonderful from the moment you begin to unwrap it.

I received their Euforia Cadeau or gift pack containing eight slices of their thousand layer cake (four slices each of vanilla and spice varieties) with two sachets of Civet coffee which coffee aficionados will know is among the rarest and expensive coffees in the world.  For those of you unfamiliar with Civet coffee, it is made so unique because the beans are eaten by Civets (small mammals that are somewhat cat-like in appearance).  As the beans pass through the animal’s digestive system, its stomach enzymes work to shorten the peptides and increase amino acids – they are then harvested.  Okay, enough science, you are likely wondering what does this mean as far as taste?  Well, I am glad you asked.  The end result is perhaps the best coffee you will ever have – free from bitterness and rich in flavor.  Now on to the real stars of this review – the cakes.

Euforia makes a gluten-free and regular version of its thousand layer cakes.  Were those some red flags I saw some of you raising?  Well, fear not.  The company has practices and testing in place to ensure that their two versions never meet.  According to the company they manufacture the gluten-free version on dedicated days that are exclusively gluten-free.  All surfaces and equipment are intensely cleaned and sanitized on the days in between production runs.  Also, the company produces a higher volume of its gluten-free varieties versus its regular variety.

Each slice arrives individually packaged and from the moment you open a slice the wonderful aroma is the first thing you notice.  The vanilla variety is infused with delicate notes of rich vanilla that make this cake simply delicious.  The spice variety has a mix of exotic spices that are perfectly balanced and play perfectly against the subtle sweet cake base.  You would think that a cake with so many layers would be dense and heavy but that is not the case.  All of the cakes have the most light, airy, and spongy texture that is simply amazing.

Rarely do I come across gluten-free products that are true standouts and Euforia’s cakes are definitely among the select few.  Not only are these luxurious cakes delicious but they are paired with organic Keemun tea or Civet coffee.  Aside from the sample gift pack Cadeau you can order thousand layer rolls, whole cakes, and a selection of fine teas and coffees.  Now the products are not cheap but quality rarely is.  These are labor intensive artisanal cakes to make so paying a premium is well worth it.

Now for the best part…
