Angelic. That’s how I would describe this cake from Ruby Bakery in Eagle Rock—it was one of the highlights of my birthday weekend. I’m usually a sugar frosting girl, but the whipped chocolate frosting, teetering between airy and substantial, may have made a convert of me. The yellow cake was light and spongy, as you’d expect from a Chinese bakery, but this one was fluffier than you can imagine, with a whipped cream filling.
The overall effect was very subtle…until the fresh mangoes came into play. That’s when things got interesting. The mangoes were ripe, adding punch in terms of sweetness and texture. Happy Birthday, indeed.
Ruby Bakery has been around for 25 years. They also sell cupcakes, crème puffs and a signature strawberry crème cake that gets a lot of raves.
