When I wrote about L’ami in May, I mentioned that the Opera Cake was the best cake in the world. Well, unless you don’t like chocolate. In that case, I pity you. :)
Well,the best cake in the world has found itself to Baguio! Thank you, L’ami Frenchy for granting my wish. This cake was just made available last week. Dreams do come true! ;)
Opera cake is a French creation. No wonder why Aklay said it was the best cake in the world when I first tried this cake at his buffet in Sagada! Haha. If I had to come up with a list of THE top dessert in Baguio- this would be it!
It’s made up of layers of almond sponge cake, ganache, buttercream, chocolate glaze. And somewhere there, coffee is mixed in. All those layers, all those different flavours and textures – making your mouth a playground of heavenly flavours!Ah. So so good!
This cake’s production is labor intensive, ingredients are a little more expensive than your regular cake- thus- the price tag.One slice is 200 pesos. That’s 1 mini roll of fluffy Red Ribbon Cake Roll. But who wants a fluffy cake roll when you can have a dense, rich, sophisticated Opera cake?
So, don’t even think about it. Follow your taste buds and head over to L’ami Frenchy right away. They’re at the old Jade Restaurant/ Bambenny – just right after the BGH flyover.
