Impressive and so delicious. The flavor mocha has been popularized among our local bakeries. You can find all kinds of mocha desserts everyone. Range from breads (eg. Roti Papa) to cakes with cream.

Not a cake decorator? Nevermind, this swiss log (or log cake…) will be covered with lots of chopped peanuts and chocolate chips. All your flaws can now be covered. Hahaha
