Moist chocolate cake, hazelnut crisp, whipped cream and silky chocolate ganache – need we say more?
MANILA, Philippines – Sokola Cakes, a small family business known for its chocolate cakes, is back with a new dessert on the menu – the Praline Crunch Cake – and chocolate addicts can’t miss it!
Released in June, the new Crispy praline cake (P980) combines the silkiness of premium Belgian chocolate with the sophisticated taste of hazelnut. It’s a four-layer cake that’s generous in every way – you get a soft, moist, rich chocolate cake topped with praline – a thin layer of crunchy hazelnuts – that looks like a Ferrero Rocher; and on top is a light and airy whipped cream topped with a smooth and silky bittersweet chocolate ganache for maximum indulgence.
Sokola’s Praline Crunch Cake is a balanced dessert that’s not overly sweet, but still decadent and rich. Each layer is good on its own (the hazelnut praline, in particular), but combined in a single bite? Celestial! Because it’s not too sweet, beware: one slice may not be enough.
Sokola is also known for its hazelnut crepe cake and truffle cake, among other homemade desserts. The local, home-based business was founded by a couple with over 10 years of baking experience, specializing in chocolate cakes. Their previous company, Heavenly Chocolates, sold various single-origin chocolates from Ecuador, Venezuela, Madagascar, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mexico and Peru.
Sokola Cakes is based in the Commonwealth, Quezon City. To place your orders, you can message them on Instagram. – Rappler.com
