Montrealers Can Get Personal-Sized Boba Waterfall Cakes That Overflow When You Unwrap Them

You may be wondering if "boba tsunami cake" from Montreal's Ri Yue Cakes could possibly be as cool and tasty as it sounds. And the answer is yes. 

For starters, it tastes like bubble tea and is topped with actual black sugar boba bubbles. The owner, Daisy Yuan, used to have a bubble tea shop near Places-des-Arts called Coin Bleury. When it closed due to the pandemic, she said she turned her attention to baking.

"I love bubble tea and lighter cakes like chiffon. It's not easy to find this kind of style in Montreal so I might as well start baking," Yuan told MTL Blog.  

This particular cake is made with Earl Grey chiffon, a layer of Assam milk tea panna cotta, Earl Grey crème chantilly and a dash of black sugar syrup, Yuan said.

Then there's the tsunami aspect. As you unwrap your cake, it overflows like a waterfall, allowing the creamy toppings to cover the entirety of the cake. 

Lastly, Ri Yue offers 4-inch bento cakes made for one to two people, which makes sense considering "bento" is a Japanese lunch box. The bento aspect may just be the best part because it means you can eat a whole damn cake to yourself. 

A bento boba tsunami cake costs $10.99. For a full list of Ri Yue's baked offerings, check out its website.
