Mango Mille Feuille from Dessert Playground, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

Yesterday, we celebrated a friend's birthday and ended up dinner with this gorgeous cake.

Look at them roses! They aren't perfect, the cream and layering of the cake looks a bit sloppy and some mango slices were a bit..wilted? But we think that they still look pretty damn amazing! We walked right pass the dessert store, and immediately abandoned any other cake ideas that we had and went for it. We just hoped it tastes good.

And it did taste good. The layered crepes were so thin, it was so easy to cut through, it's creamy with just enough sweetness, not overwhelming, and there were bits of mango in it too. The only unfortunate bit was some mango slices with stringy bits from the mango pit, but other than that, it wasn't bad at all. Despite being totally stuffed from dinner, we still managed to make room for this sweet & creamy treat.

A cake like this costs HK$338

So soooo gorgeous. I loove mangoes too. I wonder how difficult this would be to try and recreate at home?

The mango "roses" look beautiful though. Too bad they were a little fibrous.
