Today's consumers are in search of authentic and delicious patisserie that offers exciting textures and flavors. Our Taste Tomorrow research reveals that consumers are increasingly interested in the stories behind their favorite patisserie items. They also want to understand how the food they eat impacts their health and the planet. We are committed to reinventing patisserie in collaboration with you to better satisfy your customers' needs.
The process of reinventing patisserie begins with a beloved Classic patisserie from somewhere in the world. This Classic serves as the foundation for reinvention in various ways: through creativity, a focus on health and well-being, and a commitment to sustainability.
At Puratos, we are enthusiastic about sharing these patisserie stories, and we are dedicated to helping you create your own patisserie narratives to surprise and delight your customers. This Holiday season, we will be providing you with tips on how to re-invent the Filipino classic - Ube cake. Ube is the number 1 flavor in the Philippines based on Innova (Jan-May 2023).

The exact origin of ube cake remain uncertain, but it is thought to have its beginnings in the Philippines. Ube cake is a classic Filipino cake crafted using ube halaya, a mashed purple yam. It possesses a vibrant purple hue, characteristic of dishes made with ube. Over time, ube cake has evolved into more mainstream recognition which encouraged people to play around with the flavor by adding a variety of different ingredients.
Drawing inspiration from the rich pastry traditions of both America (Cheesecake) and France (Tart), we embarked on a culinary journey to reimagine the beloved Ube cake. Through a harmonious blend of diverse flavors, textures, and global culinary influences, the creative interpretation of the Ube cake emerges as a fusion of the timeless classic with a beloved Filipino delight, the buko tart. The finishing touch is a lustrous white chocolate glaze, bestowing it with a modern and elegant appearance using Miroir Neutre.
Indulge on this delectable rendition of ube cake that is elevated to greater heights with the addition of layers of Topfil Smooth Mango. Topfil Smooth Mango is composed of 35% real Philippine Carabao Mango, skillfully combined with Tegral Satin Cream cake sugar-reduced and Festipak unsweetened whipping cream. Take pleasure in this wholesome ube cake that harmoniously blends health-consciousness with unwavering flavor.
This version of ube cake responds to the increasing demand of consumers for food made using sustainable ingredients.
