Liliha Bakery’s Coco Puff Cake

Several weeks ago we threw a surprise baby shower at our office for one of the gals who is expecting very soon. For that we catered the lunch from Soon’s Korean BBQ in Salt Lake, while for dessert, our party coordinator hooked us all up with this here Coco Puff Cake from Liliha Bakery. Yes, a Coco Puff CAKE for dessert, which I was absolutely not aware they had such a thing until now. Learn something new every day.

Therefore I’m putting this Coco Puff Cake up in the spotlight today to get the word out, just in case you weren’t aware of it either and perhaps might be interested in ordering one for an upcoming celebration.

It’s basically their famous Coco Puff pastry arranged individually next to each other in rows, then topped with a thick layer of  their decadently-delicious Chantilly frosting, which blankets over the entire top of the pieced-together puff “cake”.  An even thicker decorative bead of Chantilly gives the edge that finishing touch. While you can order a custom message on it done in your frosting color(s) of choice.

Not surprisingly, the butter-based Chantilly frosting begins to “loosen” if kept out at room temperature for an extended period of time, as you can sort of see it beginning to collapse at the edges of this “cake”.

Serve ’em up…

When I say thick layer of frosting, I mean “tick”! Like “do a couple laps around the block after eating this” thick.

Chocolate pudding fills the inside of each Coco Puff…

What? Coco Puff Cake
Where did you buy it and how much did it cost? Liliha Bakery; $25.35 per 20-piece quarter-pan.
Big shaka to: A generous helping of their insanely onolicious Chantilly Frosting is slathered over the top. Cool, creamy and tasty chocolate pudding filling in each puff. Choux Creme pastry has great texture and baked flavor. A very unique “cake” that should “wow” your guests and guest of honor, especially once they bite into that “crazy tasty” Coco Puff.
No shaka to: Needs a little help in presentation (looks kinda’ amateurish, sloppy and bland).
The Tasty Island rating: 4 SPAM Musubi

    Holy cow! I didn’t know they had a Coco Puff Cake either. I loves me some Liliha Coco Puffs, but seeing it in cake form makes my teeth hurt a little. What would make my teeth hurt more is if they could construct a Coco Puff Pyramid using the frosting as the mortar.

    Pomai, all this time I have been making French Wedding Cake with the cream puffs. Now will make a cream puffs cake like at some Safeway stores have cupcake cakes.

    holy choux, that’s awesome! I wonder if you could get it with the chocolate pudding on top.

    Congrats on the CNN Eatocracy mention!

    Nate @ House of Annie, if you click on my link at the bottom on ‘Liliha Bakery’s Famous Coco Puffs’, you’ll see they indeed have a variation called the Cream Puff. That one has Custard on the inside and Chocolate on top, except it’s not pudding, but a chocolate shell.

    Spotty, but isn’t it? It would be dangerous to leave a tub of that Chantilly frosting in my fridge. I’d quickly gain a gazillion pounds!

    Amy, I’m sure you’ve got all kinds of ideas up your sleeve with this one.

    Marvo, a Coco Puff Pyramid… brilliant! I’d say BUILD IT!

    Kat, indeed!
