After our Korean lunch at Matgalne, I asked the kids if it was okay to have dessert at THE CAKE PLANET & CAFE in Paranaque since we had Anderson for the day. I was feeling adventurous, lels. Besides, korean restaurants only offered one thing for dessert: Melona Ice Cream! And I was in the mood for some ravishing dessert after I saw pictures upon pictures of drool-worthy cakes.
From SLEX, turn right at SM Bicutan. Follow the road until you see PNB Bicutan branch on your right.
Chef John Sta. Cruz, who is my Instagram friend (I’m so very flattered to claim), owns the lovely cafe & is the man behind all the cake creations. He is an ambassador for Magnolia Gold Pure & Creamy Butter which says a lot. Because we know Magnolia, and how strictly protective it is of its brand name. They wouldn’t just get anybody to be their emissary if the chefs didn’t exceed the company’s high expectations.
So I really expected nothing but the best when we visited John’s cake shop. And he didn’t fail me.
Because I’m F.C. (feeling close) to him, I was able to ask if we (meaning ate who definitely takes better & more creative shots) could take photos of the cakes up close & personal. It was sad taking chiller photos, the pictures just didn’t do the cakes justice..
I really, really wanted to try ALL. But the cakes were sweet, and my blood sugar is already sky high as it is. I was afraid I’d go into diabetic shock if I attempted to give in to my primal desires & stuff my face with these lovely, lovely cakes. @_@. So we narrowed down our choices to five cake selections. 3 for us, and 2 for take home. Pasalubong for my Lovey & Kap. <3
And because I like to pretend that I’m a model..
There were a lot of cakes I would have loved to try, but I needed to pace myself. Good thing is, I have an excuse to go back. YAY! m/
Ate. Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures. You are as beautiful as you are amazing, and I just love you! :-* Babyson, thank you for coming with me. I know you were antsy to meet up with your chikababe, but you allowed me to have my cake & eat it too at a reasonable pace (kahit na panay ang buntong-hininga mo)! ;) Lovey, don’t worry, I will most definitely take you on my next visit. I truly missed having you on our food trip. Love, love, love to you three! <3
PS: Thank you also to John’s barista, Eugene, who so patiently brought out cake after cake so we (yeah.. meaning ATE, hehe) could take photos of the lovely cakes!
