Of Cakes and Cupcakes

Yay! It's the first Monday of the year, so I thought I'd make it extra-sweeter by doing a dessert post. Here are more sweet finds from the year 2011.
Cupcakes Galore...Red Velvet and Chocolate with Christmas Toppers :-D
The Red Velvet Cupcake by Pretty Coline of Memoirs of a Chinadoll will have to be my favorite go-to choice from local pâtissière. I got them as gifts from her, I don't really have to do a review, but I just can't help raving  about them. I actually read through her baking school adventures, I'd always hope to try one of her creations. And these will not disappoint. She's not really on a business per se with a shop and all, but just in case, you can drop by her site, and leave her a note for order inquiries. ^_^
Chocolate Cupcake is equally yummy. Albeit, I'm turning over into a new leaf as I find myself really falling in love with Red Velvet's. :-D By the way, in one seating, I was able to finish 2 Red Velvets, and a Choco. OF course, I had to share the rest. Haha! :-D 
Sansrival Cake by a La Creme sells for Php 750++. This is my birthday cake. I daresay that this is by far the best sans rival cake ever for us.The meringue layers are delightfully gooey and nutty. A la Creme's version comes with a filling that is not your usual buttery flavored, it's much like the custard filling of Brazo de Mercedes. ;-D
Blueberry Cheesecake from Hotel Vida. I got this as part of our membership perks to the Hotel Vida Circle. It sells for Php 750++ in hotel bakeshop. For cheesecake lovers, this too will not disappoint. :-D
Oh my just writing about them makes me want to falter on my goal to get back to diet mode after days and weeks of lapses. Haha! ;-D I actually had bouts of palpitations yesterday when I dared stepping on the weighing scale after weeks of avoiding it. 

Anywhow, life can only get sweeter especially with these lovelies. How about you, any sweet finds? Please do share. Happy Monday! :-D

Happy New Year Ms. Des!

I agree with your comment/s about Pretty Coline's red velvet cupcakes. I love the exact sweetness of the cream cheese frosting that goes with it. She had a lot of orders during the holiday season but she didn't fail to give some to her friends as Christmas gift.

@AidiSan: True! The cream cheese frosting makes it more yummier than it already is. :) Best Regards!

@Gellie: Awww...when you visit Pampanga, hopefully you can. :))

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
