Ponce town market now houses Cake Culture, a bakery specializing in thousand pancake cakes operating out of the Central Food Hall. Founded by Patissier Sujith RatnayakeCake Culture offers various flavors of slice and whole cake cakes and debuted on Wednesday, January 26, 2022. His length of residence was not disclosed.
Born in Sri Lanka, Sujith started making cakes in bakeries when he moved to Japan in 1997, according to a press release this week. He learned the craft of thousand pancakes at Paper Moon in Tokyo before joining the famous Lady M in Singapore and later developing other cake brands in South Korea. After marrying an American, he moved to the United States in 2016, and Cake Culture — the result of his 20 years of perfecting cakes across Asia — is his first business in Atlanta.
Cake Culture’s cakes are made of light and fluffy pastry cream nestled between 20 layers of delicate, hand-made pancakes with a caramelized crust, resulting in a light and fluffy dessert. Of Japanese origin, Cake Culture’s mille crêpe cakes are a “multicultural culinary showcase”.
Flavors include Signature Classic Crêpe Cake, with hints of almond and cherry liqueur; Matcha green tea, topped with lightly sweetened bright green matcha powder; and Strawberry, made with thinly sliced fresh strawberries between each layer. Each cake is available by the slice or whole. All cakes will come in nine inches, and the Signature Classic will also come in six inches.
