Tony’s cake for Patrick’s birthday

Happy Birthday Patrick! To celebrate his special day I bought him a cake from Tony Wong’s Patisserie – my birthday cake was from Tony too, and it tasted sooo nice that I was sure Patrick would enjoy it too.

Usually Patrick requests Käsekuchen, but he prefers the German-style, which is hard to find in Hong Kong. You can get lots of rich American or Japanese cheesecakes, but the taste is different. My guess is that the Hong Kong versions don’t use quark (which is a special dairy product – a bit similar to the French fromage frais or Indian paneer. It’s without salt, white, soft and unaged).

But Patrick also loves mango – so that gave me an idea. I asked the team at Tony Wong’s Patisserie if they could create a mango cake – similar to the fruit tarte I had for my birthday. It has a rich buttery base, is filled with sweet custard (but not too sweet) and has lots of fresh fruit on top. On this occasion, lots of fresh mango pieces shaped into rose buds!

Very creative and clever – needless to say we managed to eat the first half of the cake in one setting! Just the two of us … it is that good!

Tony’s shops are in Wan Chai, Sha Tin and Kowloon – for me the Wan Chai one is the closest, so that’s the one I go to.
