It is also called the Conjugal cake. This name connects with the tale of a couple of merchants a long time ago. It is told that when the husband took a voyage for his business, his wife made the cake to give him and swore that she would never change her love to her husband while he was far away. Her love was still sweet and warm forever like that cake was. The husband was touched and gave the name Phu The to this cake (husband&wife). Unpredictably, the husband was lured by some beautiful girls in a strange land and didn’t want to come back again. On receiving the news, the wife made the cake in hurry and enclosed the massages sending them to her husband:          

“ Tu ngay chang buoc xuong ghe         

Song bao nhieu dot banh phu the rau bay nhieu”

When the husband received the cake and the messages from his wife, he felt regret, immediately came back home and never thought of changing his heart. Since then, Phu The cake is usually used in the wedding celebrations of Vietnamese people in order to advice young couples to be faithful. SuSe cake usually has a light yellow color, is glutinous and delicious. The cake is also covered with banana leaves. This special cake is on sold in many places in Hoi An.
