The Union Group is finally opening its third outlet at Pantai Indah Kapuk Avenue Mall. To add to the excitement, Union is also launching its newest creation, The Ube Velvet Cake. With its soft layers of coconut sponge combined with a silky cream made of purple yams all topped off with purple yam crumbs and tiny macarons, the velvety purple cake will definitely delight sweet-toothed diners and offers a visual treat to boot.

Ube, or purple yam, is often used by the Filipinos to make sweet treats such as jam, ice-cream, rice cakes, and various other traditional cakes. The Filipinos believe that the more purple the treats, the better they get! And all because purple has the same colour as a 100-peso bill—so the more purple it gets, the more luck and prosperity result.

 Meanwhile, the new outlet’s interior boasts the same style as the first and second branches, with retro-chic décor adding the same elegance to the bistro. The busy and cosmopolitan atmosphere will surely add even more value to the soft, comfortable ambiance.
