Japanese Sweet Potato Mont Blanc

Japanese Sweet Potato Mont Blanc

Our 4th post on the 7th cake from Bonheur Patisserie. And this 7th cake has got to be Bonheur’s signature cake – Japanese Sweet Potato Mont Blanc ($7): Coconut Cream with Candied Japanese Sweet Potato, Vanilla Sponge, Japanese Sweet Potato “Noodle” on Puff Pastry.

Looks wise, the mont blanc was delicate and exquisite yet playfully placed on a piece of dark brown crispy puff pastry, which resembled Jacob/Khong Guan biscuits. You could hardly find a replica of this unique cake. 2 edges of this cake were sandwiched with soft pieces of white chocolate. The exterior of the cake was decorated with noodle strands look alike of Japanese sweet potato paste, just like the typical exterior of the chestnut Mont Blanc. The paste wasn’t all that sweet. The interior of typical Mont Blancs usually consist of even more cream. However, Bonheur’s version was a stark contrast. The interior was a mixture of vanilla sponge, topped with a thick layer of coconut cream which was light to the extent of being barely detectable. The sponge was a little fluffy and moist due to the cream. Two cubes of candied Japanese sweet potato were also hidden within, which we thought more should have been added.
