Need help to locate a particular Chinese dessert

A friend of mine was in Shanghai and enjoyed a particular dessert item that was "the best dessert she ever had". She said that it saddened her to think she would probably never get to have it again.

So I had her write a description. Here it is:

Anybody know what this is?
