I hope all you mothers out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Thank you for your warm wishes. I had a pretty relaxing day with minimal work in the kitchen. Ro-Ri San prepared breakfast and we went out for a family style Italian lunch. The meal was lovely and very satisfying. For tea, we had this Mango Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Orange Blossom Panna Cotta with Orange Sauce. We were stuffed and only needed a simple and light dinner that evening.
Mango is one of my favorite fruits and I like using it in desserts when in season. With the Orange Coconut Cake recipe as a guide, I made this cake Friday evening and frosted it on Saturday. The cake was moist and tender. It could stand on its own but the cream cheese frosting made it even more delicious.
Cream cheese frosting is one of my favorite frosting. It is smooth, creamy, and not too sweet. This frosting goes well with most cakes.
Decorate as desired. I used small pieces of dried mangoes to give it a pop of color.
Serve it in thick slices with a side of mango hedgehog. 🙂
Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day! 😎
