Get your dessert appetites ready, girls~ this is the day you’ll fall in love with fruit mille-feuilles! Today, our Nius-editor are here to introduce 1/10 Cake, a dessert shop known for its signature fruit mille-feuilles. They change the fruit filling flavour every season, so every time you try it, it’s a brand-new surprise!
The store owner, Han Ji, fell in love with desserts after watching the Japanese drama “Antique Bakery.” After years of training, he finally achieved his dream and opened “1/10 Cake” with his brother, Han Zhi-jie. Most cake shops would cut an 8 inch cake into 12 pieces, but at 1/10 Cake, they cut their 9 inch cakes into 10 pieces, in hopes to satisfy their customers’ appetite. That is also how they got their store name. Let’s check out the 3 most popular desserts at 1/10 Cake!
No.1 Fruit Mille-Feuille
Don’t be put off just by seeing all that fresh cream! Because 1/10 Cake uses low-sugar recipes for all of their desserts. That’s less burden on your body, plus you get to taste the original flavors of all the ingredients. The most special feature of this fruit mille-feuille is its layers of in-season fruits. Delicate fresh cream paired with seasonal fruits makes each bite light and not too sweet. You’ll be in for a new experience every time you order this cake!
No.2 Yellow Lemon Tart
Some people refrain from ordering lemon tarts mostly because of its usual tartness. But this cake uses yellow lemons instead of the green ones, so it won’t make you frown from its sourness! On top of the yellow lemon custard is a lightly caramelized Italian meringue topped with some green lemon zest. The creamy texture, sweet and sour flavors taste just like first crush ♡
No.3 Earl Grey Chocolate Tart
The ribbon-like raspberry fresh cream layered on top is so dreamy! The middle layer is a raspberry filling combined with chocolate ganache. A great combination with a slight tartness, which is quite special. Then, on the bottom, you have a layer of earl grey flavored almond cake, which has a great tea aftertaste. All in all, a very structured dessert. (Nius-editors feel the need to give a little dance after we’ve tried this cake XD)
Special Recommendation ♡ Caramel Pudding Cake
Since this Nius-editor is a pudding fanatic… we just had to recommend this pudding cake to the list (◔౪◔)！With a base layer of white chiffon cake, in the middle, you’ll see a caramel milk mousse and vanilla custard filling. Then, you can choose how much caramel sauce you’d like to drizzle on. The cake’s creamy texture and the fragrance of caramel and a light rum flavor makes everything feel fresh and comforting!
Lastly, we’d like to remind our readers that all cakes at 1/10 Cake have limited supply. All cake flavors are announced at 12 o’clock, noon, every day on their Facebook page.
