This handcrafted delight, CODY’s new Matcha White Chocolate Cake, may be your next matcha made in dessert heaven if you’re a fan of matcha-flavored sweets or are still afraid to join the green fad.
Domestic bakery This delicacy from CODY’s Bakery balances the delicate, earthy flavor of green tea with the gentle sweetness of white chocolate ganache so as not to discourage non-matcha lovers from enjoying it. True, the actual green tea flavor in the matcha mousse does not overshadow the cake; there is only a trace of its characteristic bitterness, which is matched by the cake’s light and creamy white chocolate foundation and sweet, crisp Oreo crust.
CODY’s utilized only one layer of matcha mousse because they wanted to “create the right balance between the sweetness of white chocolate and the vegetal taste of pure and quality matcha powder.” The cake is beginner-friendly for people who like to discover Japan’s distinctive flavor, as its flavor is not overpowering and is balanced by layers of white chocolate ganache.
CODY’s mousse does not spill, fall, or crumble; it is stable and not overly airy due to the gelatin powder used to keep it firm. The Oreo crust provides a sweet crunch. It is a creamy, melt-in-your-mouth cake that is ideal for fans of light sweets and matcha enthusiasts (or those willing to try it).
The Matcha White Chocolate Cake may be bought via Instagram for P980. The CODY’s location in Valenzuela City is open everyday from 9 am to 6 pm. Additionally, the bakery provides chocolate mousse cake with three layers and tres leches cake.
