ESTREL'S CARAMEL CAKE

I am not too crazy about desserts and there are very few sweet goodies that I actually love. But among this short list of favorites is Estrel's Caramel Cake.

Estrel's Famous Flower Icings


My first taste of Estrel's Caramel Cake was probably in the 80's in one of our family reunions at my aunt's house in Quezon City. It's been a while since the last time I had it so I was really happy when I had the chance to order and buy one yesterday.

We had our department's General Assembly and Birthday Celebration for July and our group was the host. One of the organizers asked me to order a delicious cake for the occasion and Estrel's was the first thing that came into mind. I ordered a huge 16 x 24 square Caramel Cake for all of us to share and I also bought a small 8" round one for my mom.

The Caramel Cake was a huge success in our department assembly. It was all cleared off 20 minutes after it was served. The taste is still a winner and I still cannot get enough of its soft butter icing flowers and it's old fashion intricate design. This is definitely one cake that the fondant cakes wouldn't be able to beat.

Estrel's Caramel Cakes are made to order especially if you are going to buy the huge one like we had. You have to give the shop at least a day's notice to reserve. They make the 8" round ones daily without reservations but you have to buy it early in the day. They also suggest that you consume it on the day of purchase to fully appreciate its taste. The round one is Php 550 ($12.00) and the 16 x 24 square cake is Php 2,220 ($49.00). It's not exactly cheap but it's truly worth every penny.

I love Estrel's caramel cake but I also recommend that you try Costa Brava's caramel cake too. They're located at Polaris, Bel-Air. :)

It's also yummy!

Thanks, Wapsicle!

Do you have Costa Brava's number? Would like to try it, too. At least it's very near the office.

Ooops! Sorry for the super duper late reply. Teehee! You probably have their number already, but just in case, it's 896-1267 or 8966872. Cheers! :-)
