Sweet Tooth Satisfaction Across The Street: Divine Cakes

Usually I only trust Dulgies for the satiety of my hunger for something candied. But now a pastry shop is right across school &  makes me & all my fellow foodies happy.

If you could recall a certain Picea — maker of enchanting cakes for special occasions — this is their latest venture: Divine Cakes, a bake shop that serves ready-made cakes by the whole or per slice near Soriano Buliding. Cupcakes & Sans Rival is available on the menu too. I keep my promise to my fellow foodie Jeza & we check it out together this afternoon. The place is spartan & cramped but more seating is available in the second floor.

The cakes are priced within the range of Php65-75 per slice whereas the cupcakes are Php30-39 each. An array of different flavours & types of cake are available such as Tiramisu, Cappuccino Cheesecake & Chocolate Almond Tart. We ordered three different cakes & a cupcake for the both of us.

Clockwise: We tried a Red Velvet Cupcake (Php35) & I couldn’t help but compare that to the one I eat at Dulgies. Surprisingly, it tastes better in my opinion. I especially like the buttercream frosting on top which gave me just the right kick of glucose.

Next was an Oreo Cheesecake (Php65). Again, I compared it to that of Dulgies. This time, it is the latter that I enjoy better since the crust is arid & crumbly & the cake itself tasted too distinct. I believe that cheesecake’s parts should be amalgamated into one smooth flavor & this one dissappointed me. I should have tried their blueberry cheesecake perhaps?

A Cherry Chocolate Mousse is next in line. Ordinarily, mousse isn’t my thing as I find it too saccharine & sulum-od. But the contrast of cherry made this one a winner!

Lastly, Blackout — a dark chocolate concoction. I particularly like the fudgy middle & bitter aftertaste. But the cake itself, its texture particularly, was unpleasant.

Divine Cakes is open from 10 AM-8 PM. Perfect for that in-between-classes sugar fix or dessert after your dinner meeting at Captain Dad’s.

    Infante — got it!

    Will try to swing by tomorrow.

    I love Dulgies! (It’s just difficult for me to go to –)

    Also on my list is Amular — I’ve seen their cupcakes on display — curious how they taste. ^_^
