Ube Mille Crepe Cakes From Lady M Are a First For The Luxury Dessert Brand

Ube, or Philippine purple yam, is a key ingredient in making a wide array of Filipino desserts. Known for its distinct and eye-catching purple hue, ube brings an unmistakable Filipino flavor to any dish it’s incorporated with. Lady M, a luxury confections brand, recognizes this and has brought the purple wonder to its iconic Mille Crêpes Cake.

The Purple Yam Mille Crêpes Cake is a true treat for ube lovers everywhere. Luscious and sweet ube is incorporated into every element of the cake – from the lacy ube crepes to the layers of whipped ube and cream — which is then generously topped with ube crumbles and snow sugar. The word “mille”means “a thousand” in French, which implies endless layers of deliciousness in each cake.

Death by ube would sound like a happy ending to me, and that’s what this cake delivers. All ube everything is a sweet realization with Lady M’s Purple Yam Mille Crêpes, which are available now at Lady M boutique locations worldwide or online via shipping to the US and Canada.

OREO Will Be Launching New Pokémon OREOs

OREO collabs have a pristine record of not missing. They’re arguably America’s favorite cookie sandwich, so plussing up the whole affair with a smart collaboration is bullseye every time. OREO tapping in with Pokémon is another example in such consistent excellence.

Beginning today, September 8, fans can pre-order the limited edition Pokémon x OREO cookies on OREO.com. The cookies will be available at retailers nationwide starting September 13th, while supplies last.

The Pokémon x OREO cookies pay tribute to some of the most beloved Pokémon with 16 unique cookie embossments featuring iconic Pokémon such as Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. However, just like in the Pokémon world, some Pokémon x OREO cookies will be harder to find. This also means that this much hyped partnership is OREO’s first-ever cookie rarity scheme. Here’s more details surrounding it:

  • Each pack is filled at random and does not necessarily contain cookies with all 16 embossment designs, meaning every cookie pack is all about discovery and a new chance to find them all.
  • The rarity of the designs embossed on the cookies range from easy to find to hard to find, and the hardest to find (Mew) is featured on an extremely limited amount of the total cookies produced.

The 16 cookie varieties of the Pokémon x OREO collab are:

  • Pikachu
  • Bulbasaur
  • Charmander
  • Squirtle
  • Sandshrew
  • Jigglypuff
  • Lapras
  • Dratini
  • Mew
  • Cyndaquil
  • Sableye
  • Piplup
  • Snivy
  • Pancham
  • Rowlet
  • Grookey

Loaded Waffle Sticks Are A Childhood Dream Fulfilled For This Entrepreneur

For Francisco Lara of Oxnard, California, the dream of opening up his own sweets shop started when he was a kid looking up to his aunt who was known for serving her own desserts to Mexican celebrities. The complexities that came with life during the pandemic last year found Lara pivoting from finding a job in a tough market to actually taking the steps to make his childhood dream come true.

After finding a unique waffle maker online, Lara then started creating his sweet waffle creations at home and testing them with friends and family. Positive feedback then became word of mouth and social media buzz, which helped Lara create Don Waffly from his home.
