It’s graduation time and with it comes plenty of celebrations. And what are celebrations without decadent desserts like those of Café 1771.
Café 1771 offers graduates and families its home-spun cake creations by Pastry Chef Arnold Bautista. These petite cakes are 6-inch round sizes good for 8 to 10 persons. They are perfect for gifts.
Upon seeing the Evasion cake (P270 net) (pictured above), you would want to dive into an evasive combo of white and dark chocolates with cream cheese and fresh strawberry in a lightly crispy feullentine at the center. It’s not too sweet yet amazingly creamy.
For certified chocolate lovers, this Rose Noire (P250 net) is a delightful surprise. Lavish layers of Valrhona dark chocolate with hazel nut praline that sits on a crunchy crust, this chocolate-loaded creation also comes with a surprise at the center: a croquantine for some crunch and dark chocolate flavor with a distinct praline taste.
This Gianduja Truffle Mousse (P250 net) is light, pillowy, and comes with a nutty center combined with the dark and white chocolate praline flavors. Structured with elements that will surprise the palate, its sweetness comes from the base made of chocolate sponge then followed by marshmallows with cashew nuts and topped off with chocolate mousse as a velvety finish.
Of course, you don’t want to miss the signature dessert sugar-free coffee pie (P220 net) of 1771 Group of Restaurants. This coffee pie is an epic recipe from the family of Executive Chef Vicky Rose-Pacheco for over twenty years. This addicting secret is in the crisp texture of the combined flavors of Dutch cocoa and coffee with cashew nuts. And with no bells and whistles or outré ingredients, this version is sweetened with coconut sugar and lightly dusted with cocoa for an awfully memorable dessert minus the guilt.
