A Slice of Uruguayan Heaven

Uruguay, a nation renowned for its love of sweets, birthed this marvel. Pastel de Chajá isn’t just a cake; it’s a symbol of festivity, a dance of flavours, and an ode to indulgence. Named after the ‘chajá’ bird for its light and airy texture, this cake is akin to the graceful flight of the bird, delicate and pleasing with every bite. 

The Artistry of Layers

At the heart of this masterpiece are layers of soft, pillowy sponge cake, moistened with hints of peach syrup. This syrup ensures each slice remains tender and infuses the cake with an irresistible fruitiness.

Fruity slices of peaches come next, introducing a natural sweetness and a burst of flavour, reminiscent of golden sunsets over Uruguayan shores.

But, the true surprise lies in the middle. A generous spread of dulce de leche, a caramel-like confection, forms the core of this indulgent cake. Rich, creamy, and decadently sweet, it’s the heart and soul of many Latin desserts and elevates the Pastel de Chajá to an unparalleled level of indulgence.

A soft blanket of whipped cream is a prelude to the grand finale - the meringue. Crisp, airy, and melt-in-the-mouth, the meringue crowns the cake with grace.

A Feast for the Senses

Every element of the Pastel de Chajá is a symphony of sensations. From the visually tempting layers to the cascade of textures in each bite, it’s a harmonious blend you'll want to savour and revisit.

For Every Celebration and More

Traditionally a celebration cake, Pastel de Chajá is perfect for every occasion. Birthdays, anniversaries, or those days when you just need an exquisite treat, this cake stands out in all its glory.

Endless Pairing Possibilities

While perfect on its own, you can elevate the Pastel de Chajá experience with a glass of sparkling wine or a cup of rich coffee to complement its flavours.

With each slice, you're not just enjoying a dessert; you're savouring a piece of rich Uruguayan tradition. 

Every day is worth celebrating. Order now and let us whisk you away to the vibrant streets of Uruguay, where every mouthful is a fiesta!

Absolutely delicious authentic cake

Purchased for my Uruguayan father-in-law's 80th birthday, I couldn't have been happier with the cake. My Uruguayan family were absolutely delighted with the cake! Other family and visiting friends from the UK also enjoyed the cake. I'll be ordering more cakes from Margot and Montanez!

I'm hooked!

I had the pleasure of trying Margot & Montañez's Soursop Cake and Pastel de Chajá Cake at a friend's gathering, and they were pure indulgence. The Soursop Cake transported me to a tropical paradise with every bite, and the Pastel de Chajá was like a cloud of sweetness. If you're an Aussie with a sweet tooth, these South American treats are an absolute must-try. I'm hooked!
