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)
