To build your own froyo cake, you choose a base (chocolate cake, vanilla cake or waffle crisp), two froyo flavors (the selection depends on what’s in store), toppings (these go inside your cake) and decorations. They have a library of cake images to choose from (including designs that feature Menchie and his Sweet Friends) or if you email a picture, they can put it on your cake. You can also add sprinkles to your cake. They’re testing adding colors to the frosting. The standard color is white and it tastes like a whipped and sweet. It’s not a buttercream frosting or whipped cream. The flavor is mild.
The froyo cake came in a cute Menchie’s box with a sticker. The sticker had a survey URL; take the survey and get $5 worth of free froyo.
The cake had Mud Pie and Peanut Butter froyo, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and chocolate cake. The chocolate cake was dense and not dry. The frozen yogurt was pretty solid but the frosting was very soft. It took a little effort to slice and serve the cake. In terms of taste, it wasn’t a surprise since I’ve had those flavors before and the firmness of the frozen yogurt worked well in cake form. The Reese’s Peanut Butter cups overpowered the Mud Pie froyo flavor though. I might prefer froyo cake without toppings in the middle.Mudslide, peanut butter, chocolate cake, Reese’s PB cups,
Menchie’s University is the training center for new Menchie’s franchisees and it’s your regular looking froyo shop that’s open to the public. It’s the place where new products are tested and where they have events like the Nutella preview event, froyo cake tasting event and coffee testing.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
