A good number of restaurants and bakeries have enthusiastically embraced the trend and have started to incorporate this lowly tuber on their dessert selections in the form of ice creams, sponge cakes, doughnuts, bread rolls, and cheesecakes.

With its rise in popularity, other parts of the globe are taking a second look at Filipino food. I am not sure if Ube will remain in fad, but one thing is for sure, it will always hold a special place in our local cuisine.
