Cake’s Secrets 詩餅坊 – Butterfly Secret

The secret behind this cake shop or bakery, is that the Head Chef used to work at a renowned bakery somewhere in Hong Kong. One might expect high quality cakes from them, and surely you won’t be disappointed. A signature is this purple swirl of mountain, with a dense coating of purple sweet potato puree surrounding layers of sweetened whipped cream and sponge cake. While the bottom is a simple biscuit crust, the top is garnished with a beautiful yet edible butterfly. It’s both palatally and visually impressive! 

Another signature is undoubtedly popular. As it consists of green tea sponge cakes sandwiched between red bean whipped cream. The combination never fails. I especially love the crunchy meringue cones, which are basically made with egg whites and the sweetness is not as overwhelming as French macarons.

I’m not sure if this is the right season to pick up some fresh figs, but this tart is indeed stunning. The shortbread crust is flaky yet a bit lack butteriness, the cream filling contributes as an additional foundation for those figs that are surprisingly fresh and naturally sweet. This tart is another must-try!
