Decadent Graduation Cakes at Café 1771
Last December 2012, me and the rest of the Burp Society held our first meet up at the posh Café 1771 in Ortigas Center, and we got to experience their delicious foods and luscious desserts -- you can check out my blog post about it here. Now that we're coming down to the summer season, Graduation for the students are happening left and right, and Café 1771 has some special sweet treats for our dear Graduates!
From the smooth and velvety to the sweet cakes without the guilt, Café 1771 presents its homespun cake creations by Pastry Chef Arnold Bautista that will surely make your beloved graduate say that life is sweet. Available in 2-inch round sizes good for 2 persons, this petite cake is perfect for gift or when you want a cake dessert that tastes good as it looks.
If thinking of a dessert that will signify your well-deserved congratulations, Rose Noire (P250 net) is a delightful surprise, especially for someone who’s a certified chocolate lover. Lavish layers of Valrhona dark chocolate with hazel nut praline that sits on a crunchy crust, this chocolate-loaded creation also comes with a surprise at the center: a croquantine for some crunch and dark chocolate flavor with a distinct praline taste.
For something that can make anyone dive right in, Evasion (P270 net) gives this promise: an evasive combo of white and dark chocolates with cream cheese and fresh strawberry in a lightly crispy feullentine at the center. What’s more to love? It’s not too sweet and amazingly creamy.
|Gianduja Truffle Mousse|
Light, pillowy and comes with a nutty center, the Gianduja Truffle Mousse (P250 net) combines the dark and white chocolate praline flavors. Structured with elements that will surprise the palate, its sweetness comes from the base made of chocolate sponge then followed by marshmallows with cashew nuts and topped off with chocolate mousse as a velvety finish.
|Sugar-free Coffee Pie|
And who wouldn’t want the 1771 Group of Restaurants signature dessert, the sugar-free coffee pie (P220 net)? An epic recipe from the family of Executive Chef Vicky Rose-Pacheco for over twenty years, the addicting secret is in the crisp texture of the combined flavors of Dutch cocoa and coffee with cashew nuts. And with no bells and whistles or outré ingredients, this version is sweetened with coconut sugar and lightly dusted with cocoa for an awfully memorable dessert minus the guilt.
A good cake not only serves as a delightful centerpiece—the very presence of it on the table marks a celebration itself. For an extra touch of something dreamy and decadent to welcome another chapter of a hard working graduate, give these mini cakes as a surprise, guaranteed to communicate your love and best wishes!
