Do you know, what is Sweetheart Cake? According to Wikipedia, a sweetheart cake or wife cake is a traditional Cantonese pastry with a thin crust of flaky pastry, and made with a filling of winter melon, almond paste, and sesame, and spiced with five spice powder. “Wife cake” is the translation of lou po beng from Cantonese, and although the meaning is “wife”, the literal translation is “old lady cake”, paralleling the colloquial usage of “old lady” for “wife” in American English.
The cake is still popular in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Many people in Hong Kong, as well as professional chefs, also bake modern variants. A sweetheart cake is more of a “catchy” term, but it’s basically a smaller cake that is just shared between the couple. Often, it’s used for the cake cutting ceremony and then other desserts or treats are served to the guests. A sweetheart cake – or smaller, personal-sized cake – is a great money-saving option in lieu of doing a large cake.
