A stunningly beautiful mango cake in Chinatown...

I got to eat a slice (well ... perhaps 2) of this mango cake when I was at a friend's birthday party a few weeks ago ... and just had to share.  This thing was gorgeous!  It was a very light yellow layer cake with a whipped white frosting, pretty close to whipped cream.  The whole cake, however, was covered with these thin slices of fresh mango all around, creating that dome effect.  And those blossoms on the top?  Well, they are actually the same thin slices of mango wrapped into those circles/cylindrical shapes, with little blobs of colored whipped frosting in the middle.  Pretty fantastic, right?  We were in Chinatown eating dim sum for this event, and the cake came from a Chinese bakery in that area.  I wish I could remember which one.

I now have it on good authority that a different friend is planning to make a birthday cake involving fresh mango and lime ... very much looking forward to seeing how it turns out next week!
