This Gorgeous Cake Has an Almond Crust and Vanilla-Custard Buttercream

You can also get it topped with chocolate ganache.

( You might think you've tried every cake there is—but there are tons of other variations to explore, like those originating from Nordic tradition. One purveyor shines the light on Norwegian flavors through their Mandel Cream Cakes (a.k.a. almond cream cake), a creamy-crunchy confection with layers of an almond crust and vanilla custard buttercream. You can get these creations from Taguig-based seller Hansen's!

There's no skimping on the buttercream here.

Hansen's offers two variations of the said dessert: the classic Mandel Cream Cake (P550/junior size, P700/regular size), and the Belgian chocolate ganache-topped Chocolate Mandel Cream Cake (P650/junior size, P800/regular size). Can't choose? You can also get the Half & Half (P600/junior size, P750/regular size). Whichever variant you choose, it'll definitely go well with a warm cup of coffee!

You can get it topped with chocolate ganache, too.
