Tapioca(/ˌtæpɪˈoʊkə/; Portuguese pronunciation: [tapiˈɔkɐ]) is a starch extracted from cassava root (Manihot esculenta). This species is native to the northeast region of Brazil, but its use spread throughout South America.

Bread, sponge cake or biscuits/cookies or in this case sliced bananas are used to line a mold, which is then filled with a fruit puree, custardor ice cream.
