The cake, which is a tres leches-inspired dessert, combines a spongy, buttery cake and the soothing, satisfying flavor of the Japanese drink, according to Spot.ph.

Payments can be made either through bank deposits or via Globe telecom’s Gcash. Melange.ph can arrange the delivery via Grab or Lalamove after the customer gives their necessary details like name, contact number, address and orders.
