This Festive Puto Bumbong Cake Is Back For The Holiday Season
Christmas is just around the corner!
The entrance of the "ber" months in Manila is widely considered the official start of the holiday season in the Capital. Filipinos are notoriously obsessed with Christmas and as early as September, Jose Mari Chan-sung carols start playing on every street corner, Christmas trees are put up and decorated, gifts are purchased, and so on. 2020, however, brings about a much different holiday season in Manila.
With the pandemic still very much looming overhead, the usual family gatherings and celebrations seem to be out of the question. Thankfully, there is one thing about Christmas that can still remain the same: The food! And what's Christmas without the comforting taste of all your favorite holiday desserts? Here's one you'll want to order ASAP: Lia's Cakes in Season makes Puto Bumbong Cake every Christmas and it's finally back on their menu!
"The quintessential Simbang Gabi snack, now in cake form," reads the description of this festive cake on the Lia's Cakes website. The freshly cooked kakanin brings about memories of chilly early mornings spent with family members, and the cake tries emulates those same happy feelings. The ube-based cake is topped with coco-muscovado sauce, muscovado sugar, and dessicated coconut. You can get it for P1,680!
