How Should I Serve Corazon’s Ube Decadence?

It’s best when served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If you want to be really classy, then make it look more unique and elegant by using a traditional serving dish and serving it with some fresh ube halaya.

Can Corazon’s Ube Decadence Be Frozen?

Unlikely because the tapioca pudding tends to break down at frozen temperature, making the dessert not as creamy as it is when it’s served directly from the oven.
