The latest debut from luxury confections brand Lady M utilizes purple yam, also known as ube, which originated in the Philippines and is often used as the key ingredient in Filipino desserts.
This new twist on Lady M’s iconic Mille Crêpe cakes, the Purple Yam Mille Crêpes Cake, features creamy and sweet purple yam incorporated into every element of the cake – from lacy purple yam crepes to the layers of whipped purple yam and cream and purple paste, topped with purple yam crumbles and snow sugar.
Lady M’s newest item ($95) is available now at its boutiques in New York, California, Chicago, Washington, DC and Boston. Customers can pre-order the cake for pickup or shipping through its website.
Also available now is a limited-edition mooncake gift set in honor of the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival. The Celebration of Lights Mooncake Gift Set box portrays a sparkling, light up Ferris wheel in vibrant shades of deep navy blue, royal purple and gold, and a moon rabbit on the packaging. Each side of the Ferris wheel opens to reveal Lady M mini mooncakes, custom designed with Kee Wah Bakery, in flavors of custard and chocolate.
