What is that?

I've gotten a few emails, calls and one comment asking just what, exactly, is on that plate:

In advance of our dinner, Sean arranged for the message to written on the dessert plate we had at Rhapsody, a lovely little restaurant around the corner from Symphony Center. The little cake is a Lemon-Yogurt Cake with Lemoncello Sabayon, Rhubarb Jam and Chamomille Gellee. It was good, but so tiny - since we split it we each had three bites.

Rhapsody was good but it was definitely one of those frou-frou restaurants where teeny-tiny portions are served on ginormous plates with an even larger price tag. I cannot imagine going back, but my opinion didn’t seem to be shared by many other diners there; several were greeted by name by the hostess and it appeared for others the place was a home-away-from-home. It caters to the Symphony crowd (it's adjacent to Symphony Center) and it was very good at getting us in and out in time for the concert.

All that to say, the picture's of cake. A petite little cake to be sure, but a cake nonetheless.
