"This is my ultimate favorite Filipino dessert. I used to work in an office with many Filipino women, and one would always be asked to bring this awesome cake. It's not really cake, it's dense. And the topping - OMG... Try this, you won't be disappointed! You can find frozen grated cassava at Asian markets, and sometimes in the grocery store. My local Publix carries it - and we don't have a huge Asian population here."
