Oriental Bloom- Orange Butter cake of the month

Oriental Bloom- Orange Butter cake of the month

 

Spring is in the air with “Oriental Bloom” as Hilton Petaling Jaya kicks off 2014 with January’s cake of the month. This zesty orange butter cake in three layers alternating between moist butter cake and orange cream cheese fuses the richness of butter and cheese with the tanginess of orange, creating a cake which is not too heavy or too sweet perfect with a cup of tea after a long day or just as a ‘sweet’ reprieve in between.

Decorated with vibrant mandarin orange slices, colourful chocolate pieces and a sprinkling of pistachios this cake has less cream and a subtle balance of flavours which makes this cake suitable for those who prefer a lighter, flavourful but not over powering taste.

“Oriental Bloom” is priced at RM65++ at Caffè Cino and will be available from 1 to 31 January 2014. So come on down to Hilton Petaling Jaya and give it a try today.

For reservations, click here or call 03-7955 9122 extn. 4060/4065
