Tropical Cake Recipes

This week we have been at Sirha where, in addition to discovering the latest pastry trends, we have been able to reconnect with friends and collaborators. Among them Ravifruit, who invited us to perform a demo at their stand thanks to which we could meet in person many of you. It has been a pleasure!

In the demonstration we presented our Tropical Cake, a dessert that always surprises, since its fresh and clean flavours are able to transport us anywhere with just a bite. It is a recipe composed of coconut and passion fruit cake batter and mango creamy. The latter, developed with the intention of transmitting the strength of the fruit’s pure flavour. A tender and fresh recipe that will not leave you indifferent. Here you have it so you can check it anytime you want! Will you have it a go?
