What’s a nuage cake you ask? It’s cool, I completely didn’t know until last week either. FOODBEAST was fortunate enough to get an invite the night before the grand opening of Bo Nuage in Los Angeles, California to come out and try some nuage cakes for the first time.
Popularized in France over the last few years, Nuage translates to “cloud cakes” in French. Made with whipped cream, it’s covered with meringue, another layer of whipped cream and dusted with flavored chocolate shavings. Different nuage flavors include: almond, caramel, chocolate, chocolate mint, coconut, coffee, hazelnut, lemon, mango, passion fruit, peanut butter, pistachio, red velvet and vanilla.
Super light, savory and sweet. An average-sized nuage cake goes for $6 with larger cakes also available upon ordering. If you’re in the Los Angeles neighborhood, however, and you’re itching to try something new, this definitely could be worth it.
