There’s a reason for this ingenious, daring name. Because right from the selection of raw materials to the shaping stage, all require meticulousness and care.
Smart cake is made from rice flour. And to achieve the desired softness and flexibility, the selected rice must be delicious and premium. When kneading the dough, the chef will add a few flavorings, then incubate thoroughly so that the cake is spongy, soft and fragrant.

This is also the time when the people of Phu Quoc express their creativity by coloring the cake. Until the cake is cooked, visitors are spoiled for choice in their favorite color, from green, yellow, pink to purple,…
The “dexterity” is also reflected in the shaping of the cake. Instead of shaping the cake into a regular round shape, the chef also had to twist the dough so that the color layer spread, creating beautiful lines.
In some bakeries, people also mold them into lotus, five-petaled, moon or spiral shapes…
