隱身在嘉義忠孝路林蔭大道旁的「常常手作」是許多饕客都會造訪的一家甜點店。這次也特別為即將到來的日環食打造一款特色甜點,這次選用芒果做成香甜慕斯,配上微酸的百香果奶油餡和果凍,這樣一來就與酥脆塔皮形成對比的口感,再來還會融入阿里山烏龍茶做成的茶凍增加層次感,最後在最上面放上塔皮餅乾,外圍露出一圈芒果果凍淋面,表現出日環食的意象。

Located next to the Zhongxiao Road, East District in Chiayi, the dessert store “Frequent” is a foodies’ paradise.

In addition, the dessert featuring a layer of cookie dough and mango Jell-O splattered on top forms the shape of a solar eclipse.
