THESE days, homemade cakes by professional chefs and serious home bakers are the toast of the metro. They are giving commercially produced cakes, which are available in popular bakeshops, a run for their money because they provide variety. These homemade cakes are more creative, especially in terms of flavors and variants, and certainly taste as heavenly as they look.
One of the artisanal bakeshops that are gaining a steadily increasing stream of clientele is Bellefleur by Beatrix. With a store located at Unimart Greenhills, it is owned and operated by Beatrix Atienza, who offers many unique and awesome tasting cakes.
The newest addition to Bellefleur by Beatrix’s line of cakes is Mango Tres Leches Cake. It is a thin layer of leche flan topped with vanilla chiffon cake, covered in a layer of mango cream, outlined by broas soaked in a special tres leches sauce, and topped with fresh mangoes.
Keep it in the freezer all the time, taking it out only when you want to enjoy a slice or two. Slice immediately from its frozen form, and it comes off easily. Each bite is divine because it is a cross between a cake and an ice cream. The leche flan, vanilla chiffon cake, mango cream, broas and fresh mangoes meld together into one cohesive mouthful of dessert that is to die for. The flavors, the texture, and the feel of frozen mango cream melting in your mouth… Ah, pure bliss!
An 8-inch round Mango Tres Leches Cake, which makes 8 to 10 generous servings, costs Php1,350 per cake. Since it is a very popular cake and stocks run out quickly at Bellefleur by Beatrix’s store at Unimart, it is best to order two to three days in advance to make sure you get your sugar fix without hassle.
