The Simple Sumptuousness of Hokkaido Cake
Movies and magazines have filled our heads with confectionery dreams and sugar acrobatics, but chefs and connoisseurs will reveal that simplicity is the truest test of skill. For when you are tasked to create what is simple, perfection is a requirement. Your ingredients are thrown in the spotlight-freshness and quality make all the difference. The Japanese have made it a way of life, their minimalism is utter perfection-everything done with an intricate attention to detail using only the highest quality materials.
Take the Hokkaido Cake-a light, airy and butter-y sponge cake with a rich creamy centre. It may seem simple, but if done with a master's hand, pastry heaven is no exaggeration. Inspired by the soft, picturesque snow-dusted scenes of Japan, this cake has found its way into the hearts and bellies of many. The sponge cake is so light it floats like a delicate soufflé and its sumptuous creamy filling is a warm touch of French vanilla on the tongue. First launched in Malaysia, the cake has been swooned over by food and lifestyle bloggers, and home bakers alike.
Now, Anchor and French Baker have brought the famous Hokkaido Cake to Manila as the first product of the Cakes of the World line. Fonterra Brands through Anchor Cream and Anchor Butter bring the top quality ingredients to the masterful kitchens and ovens of French Baker to create this sure favorite. These luxurious Hokkaido cakes are filled with the pure dairy goodness of Anchor Cream, one of the New Zealand's finest ingredients that bring out the cake's rich flavour.
This fine chiffon cake with pure Anchor dairy cream in the centre comes in singles or in batches of 5, perfect for sharing. Each cake is individually wrapped in a cheerful robin blue egg wrapper, and then placed in a box. Every eating experience feels like you're unwrapping a present. This makes it a perfect gift, pasalubong, or potluck contribution for any occasion.
