One of the things in my bucket list that I have yet to check is to experience the Hanami and Cherry Blossoms Festival in Japan. It is celebrated during this time of the year, mostly from March to May, when the Japanese Cherry Trees (Sakura) are in full bloom.
To celebrate the Sakura Festival, Honeybon Pastry Shop, a Japanese designer cake shop, unveiled their their latest offering last week– the Sakura Mango Roll.
The Sakura Mango Roll is a combination of the flavors of Japan and the Philippines. The soft, light, and fluffy chiffon is cherry-infused while the filling consist of sweet Guimaras mangoes. It is covered in light pink frosting that is not overly sweet……… the perfect ending to your meal or just to pair with coffee.
I particularly like how flavorful yet light this cake is. Each bite will give you a unique flavor combination that will leave you wanting for more.
You can get it for ₱550 (whole) and ₱120 (slice) at all Honeybon Pastry Shop and Tokyo Bubble Tea Branches.
I was really surprised to find out that the owner of Tokyo Bubble Tea and Honeybon pastry Shop are husband and wife. That’s the reason why you can find Honeybon products inside Tokyo Bubble Tea restaurants. It’s a good thing though because I love the Bubble Teas at TBT and I’m planning to try out the different cakes of Honeybon.
Honeybon offers many designer cakes like the Brazo Mango, Chocolate Caramel Cake, Chocolate Decadence, Honey Mango, Mango Cheesecake, Midnight Opera, Mocha Sansrival, Red Velvet, Roasted Cocoa Mousse, Starwberry Alpine, Strawberry Matcha Mousse, and Strawberry Shortcake.
But among all those cakes, the two cakes I am mostly curious about is the Matcha Tiramisu….
and the Matcha Cappuccino.
I will definitely be back at Honeybon to try them out.
Honeybon Pastry Shop is located at 253 Katipunan Ave.,Quezon City, Philippines (right across MacDonald’s)
OH my the cakes looks delicious. MY current favorite cake is the Mango Tart at Victorinos in Scout Rallos. I’m curious about the Sakura Mango Roll. I must try. 🙂
The SAkura Mango Roll is one of the best cakes I’ve ever had.
You are making me hungry now!
Head on to the nearest Honeybon
What a nice bakery Peachy…all the cakes are so beautifully decorated!
Hope you are having a great week 🙂
Oh wow. That Sakura Mango Roll looks sooooo nice. I’d give that a 10 for presentation. I hope it tasted just as good?
Yes, it does!
How awesome that they are husband and wife! Everything sure looks spectacular, I’ll def. give ’em that one!
Perfect combination, right?
The cakes here looks really delicious and are also tempting. Definitely perfect for desserts.
You can say that again!
I love their cakes! It’s just that the place is too far from where I live. I’m totally digging the Match Cappuccino. My next friend who’s celebrating his birthday is in for a treat because I have a new go-to place for cakes – something new compared the usuals 😀
It’s true. The cakes here are diffferent and they taste really good.
All those cakes! I love Japanese foods and desserts, they all seem healthy and almost guilt-free to eat. Anyone who is on diet surely won’t hesitate for a bite. I want to try that Matcha Tiramisu too! I wish they’ll open a branch in our place since we already have the Tokyo Bubble Tea Restaurant 🙂
The cakes are available at Tokyo Bubble Tea Restaurants Emma!
Wow, I have never seen cakes like this! Ever! Do they taste as good as they look?
Yes they do!
They should hire you to do their advertising, the photos are awesome! I am not a fan of fruity cakes, but the idea of the Chocolate Caramel cake sounds perfectly yummy! Too bad it is 830am where I am!
Thanks you Christina!
Not only do the deserts look beautiful but they look like they taste good too! YUM!
yes, those are beautiful and delicious
Oh my gosh! That mango roll is so pretty and it looks incredible. I’d love to try that out!
I’m sure you’d love every single bite!
All of these pastries are so pretty! Almost too pretty to eat 🙂 I’ve always wanted to see the sakura trees bloom. Maybe one day I’ll make it out to Japan (or Washington DC) to take part in some of the festivities!!
I’m hoping I could one day visit Japan too!
I live in a Japanese part of town and I have been seeing cakes like these around. They look SO pretty but I don’t know how good they taste???
These taste heavenly.
The cakes are so mouthwatering! I hope they taste as good as they look 😀
Oh they do!
The matcha cappuccino looks really tasty. It has a unique taste and an enticing look.
I’ll try it next time I’m at Tokyo Bubble Tea.
Oh wow thanks for sharing your discovery. The Matcha Cappuccino looks too good! I’ll try to visit soon. 🙂
You’re welcome. I also want to try that.
All of the desserts look really good. I’ve never had a mango roll before. I’d love to try it. The Matcha Cappuccino looks good too.
Oh yeah! That’s what I want to try next time.
OMG, you got me craving for these cakes! It’s too bad their only branch is so far from us. I hope they put up a branch near us soon.
You can get the cakes from Tokyo Bubble Tea branches too!
Wow…..all of those cakes look amazing! I love tiramisu but everything looks so great, I wouldn’t know where to start!
This looks like an amazing bakery. So many wonderful and interesting options to choose from!
It is. the cakes are so pretty too.
I like their unique cakes. Pangarap ko rin ma-experience ang cherry blossom sa Japan 🙂
Lika na, Japan na tayo.
Oh my goodness – that looks so incredible! Wish I could serve these at my Easter dinner next weekend. My guests would be so impressed.
That’s a great idea!
That Sakura Mango Roll looks amazing! Those cakes also look super yummy! Nothing’s better than finding a new restaurant to visit <3
It is really good.
