BELLEFLEUR by Beatrix’s frozen cakes are something else. The product of careful planning and countless kitchen testing until the recipe has been perfected, they look awesome and taste as good as they look. And Bea Atienza, the brains behind Bellefleur by Beatrix, is just so good at layering her frozen cakes with stuff that work like magic together that she just keeps coming up with best-selling cakes one after another.
Her newest creation: Strawberry Tres Leches Cake. It is a brilliant follow-up to her extremely popular Mango Tres Leches Cake and therefore follows the same formula but with sweetness and general taste adjusted from what works with mango to what works with strawberry to make it just the right sweetness—nothing more, nothing less—for the particular fruit used. Leche flan sits at the bottom of the cake, with vanilla chiffon cake over it and then a generous layer of strawberry cream mousse, topped with slices of fresh Baguio strawberries and crowned with lady fingers soaked in a delightful tres leches sauce.
“We use local strawberries because we want to highlight their natural sweetness and vibrant color. Apart from that, we also want to help local farmers uplift their lives through our products,” explains Bea.
