No. 49 Mango Cake from Orchard Hotel

Mango Cake

It has been awhile since we bought a cake listed in the 50 Yummiest Cakes article.

Having ordered Ritz Carlton's Mango Mousse Cake for my colleague's birthday, I am tasked to get another mango cake for another birthday occasion which is just less than a week away.

Described by the article that this is generously inlaid with fresh mango slices and sprinkled with fluffy coconut flakes, I thought a hotel's signature cake will not go wrong but the impression obtained was not far away from Yuan's impression of Bengawan Solo's mango cake.

Reason being? The sliced mango with a layer of jelly served with fresh cream and sponge is quite old-school and having ate a fantastic mango mousse cake from Ritz Carlton, I doubt this is going to impress. Looks like I will need help from my readers to suggest good mango cakes for me?

FYI, each sliced is priced at $5.80+ and whole cake is available in 2 sizes (500gm and 1kg) priced at $32+ and $42+ respectively.

I've tried Orchard Hotel's mango cake before & I don't remember it to be like this. I thought it was pretty good then. But that was quite long ago so they might have tweaked the recipe.

Does it look similar to what is in the picture? I thought it was pretty ordinary, considering it is just cream and sponge... Moreover, it has the "mango" taste which I dislike so I passed the entire cake for Yuan to finish.

On the contuary, I didn't mind more helpings on their green tea mousse.
