“Fat a cake” has a cute feel with a beige colored wall and a red window with the name written on it. The signature menu “Choco Ganache” combines rich chocolate cream sanded on the outside and soft cream between the sheets to create a rich sweetness. The crunchy cookie between the cream is chewy in the middle and adds a crunchy texture.

“Season” is a popular place on social media due to its colorful colors and decorations. The signature menu is the “season cake,” which consists of layers of chocolate sheets and chocolate ganache. The cute visuals were completed with animal characters on a pastel background such as pink and light blue. Soft cream and rich ganache are combined on a moist cake sheet to give a pleasant sweetness.

“Frutier” captures the fresh flavors of the most delicious seasonal fruits of each season, such as mangoes, strawberries, kiwis, and figs. The flavor of fresh cream varies depending on the type of fruit to bring out the best flavor. This season, “pure milk melons,” which are a combination of melons with sweet juice and cream containing a savory milk flavor, are popular. Thanks to the cream, which has a strong lightness, it doesn't bite.

“HOPE GARDEN HANNAM” stands out for its contrasting atmosphere between the first floor, which is filled with beautiful plants, and the second floor, which makes use of a vintage sensibility. The signature menu is “Earl Grey Black,” a chocolate genoise sheet filled with Earl Grey cream and seasonal fruit, then coated with Valrhona glasache. The fragrant earl gray scent spreads with a heavy chocolate flavor, adding a luxurious flavor.

“La Pose Vegan Cake” offers vegan cakes that do not contain butter, sugar, milk, eggs, fresh cream, or flour. I want to make healthy desserts based on minimal sugar and maintenance. The signature menu, “Carrot Cake,” stands out for the chewiness of the sheet made with a base of rice flour and almond powder. The aroma of cinnamon spreads gently on the sheet, which spreads its aroma as you chew it, and cleans up the aftertaste.
