It was one of my aunt's 70th birthday party when I got a taste of this luscious and one of a kind cake. After the blowing of the candle, the restaurant staff served the cake and I got a slice of it. Yummyyyy!!! I really love the taste so with all eagerness I asked my cousin where she bought it.
This Conti's Mango Bravo cake became a favorite topic (among Filipinos) in the net because of its unique shape and taste. The popularity of this cake is the result of word of mouth from people who got a bite of it and made a personal favorite like in my case. It is a tall cake compared to ordinary one. If my calculation is right, it is as if I am buying 2 cakes for a price of one. But the popularity of this cake lies on the delicious stuff it has. It is chilled layer of sponge cake, cashew, cream, mango chunks, chocolate mousse, meringue-like-textured filling, covered with white mango cream with mango chunks on top of the cake and chocolate drippings all over. As to its size, approximately the large one can serve 12 people and 6-8 slices for the small one.
Conti's Pastry Shop & Restaurant has a small and large size of it. I usually order the big one which costs me around Php950. Actually, considering the size and the sumptuous ingredients of the cake I think I just had a best buy. It is not like other ordinary cake with full of chiffon layer flavored with either vanilla or chocolate. At Conti's, if you order for a mango cake you get the taste from top to bottom, outside to inside. This cake is just really so delicious and superb.
