my take of ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Miette’s Tomboy (page 145) topped with mango rose has been defined as: “chocolate cake with fresh mango is a new combination to die for!”
here is a briefing by my friend Stanley, who took most of the wonderful pictures above:
Hector Wong’s Mango Rose Cake
Look at the size of this mango…it’s humongus. This variety is from Florida and I’m told the trees don’t get much larger than 10′ high and bears about 50 fruit per season. The fruit weighs around 2lbs but I have no idea how it tastes. Seedling and/or fruit can be purchased from Frankies in Waimanalo.
