Asian Fresh Fruit Cake

Asian Fresh Fruit Cake is a delicacy created using traditional homemade techniques for a well developed rich, moist sponge cake that is absolutely beautiful when covered in the stabilized whipped cream that tastes even better than it looks. This cake is commonly found in asian markets, but mine is better.

Heavenly moist rich Asian Fresh Fruit Cake is a delicious authentic Asian style sponge cake that will hypnotize you with its allure as your senses tingle with pleasure from the fresh flavors. The stabilized whipped cream is perfectly balanced with sweetness and is very good with your favorite fresh fruit. This recipe unlocks some secretes to a style of cake that is traditionally an Asian store featured item. The cake is not too sweet and is almost subtle in how elegant it delivers its taste profile. The combination of homemade and natural made flavors are perfect on any occasion. I highly recommend trying this recipe at least once to see for yourself just how delicious it really is.
