An Exclusive Collection of Diamond Hotel’s Famed Cakes from The Cake Club
Duration : a few minutes
Bummers : quite pricey but awesome quality
For only Php 940, which was originally Php 1500, we deem we scored a great deal to get 6 of the best cakes from Diamond Hotel’s The Cake Club. We claimed our voucher so we can give these 6 cakes a try. We predicted that from the vivid colors and luscious scent, this is gonna be a fun experience.
As a chocoholic, the first thing to try among the 6 is definitely the Supermoist Chocolate Cake. Moist was not enough to describe it so they decided to put “super” in front of it. This cake is really made for chocoholics. It comes with a thick layer of chocolate mousse-like icing that encapsulates the moist cake center. This one is half chocolate icing and half chocolate base.
Vanessa is not only a lovely name for a girl but also an incredibly good choice for a cake. This lovely cake is made from pistachio macaroons, whipped cream, and slices of fresh strawberries. Personally believe that a lot of people would die to have a taste of Vanessa. Oh, and it was named after Diamond Hotel’s General Manager.
Laguna is a special place to us, specifically Los Baños. We have tasted buko pies (coconut pie) from here, there, and everywhere. And we brought home boxes of them as well. Getting to experience a classy take on a classic dessert, Cecilia was Chef Robert Mempin’s own rendition of buko pie. This cake has a soft tart-like base filled with creamy buko and raisin filling. It is topped with a super thick of cream and drizzled with dessicated coconut. You should eat it from top to bottom slicing from the toppings to the creamy icing down to the soft tart. This modern buko pie is a sure hit!
Ispahan has a distinct appeal to anyone who sees it. Not only because of its lively color but also because of its exquisite fragrance. At first, we thought that Ispahan was also made with strawberries but actually it is made with raspberries, lychee, and rose essence. This cake is like a chic red whoopie pie that sandwiches raspberries and lychees. Ispahan is Diamond Hotel’s tribute to French pastry chef Pierre Herm.
The matrimony of chestnut and prunes is made possible with the creation of Mont Blanc. This cake is light and sweet, which is perfect for those who like a subtle flavor on their pastry. The prunes used for Mont Blanc are soaked in dark rum, which gives this cake a lovely kick on the side. It has a soft tarty base that has a hint of almonds. A bite of Mont Blanc gives you a picture of sitting at your porch with a relaxing view of the suburbs.
In honor of the patron saint of all bakers and pastry chefs, St. Honore Ube was crafted. This cake is made using layers of pâte a choux and topped with ube ganache. Where there’s ube, it feels like there’s ice cream. St. Honore Ube is really one of the best ways to honor the patron saint of baking.
The Cake Club offers not-your-average pastries. They have their own twists and surprises on how they present each cake. Though the price may be a bit higher compared to other cake shops, it’s definitely worth trying because they use only the best ingredients with every serving. Based from the taste, even the fruits used are only the freshest. We’ll definitely drop The Cake Club again because there is a lot more pastries to try. And I heard they serve mean savory dishes as well so that’s another thing to look forward. Oh, and their in-house ice creams. Must try them too.
Awesome to be part of the club!
Spread some awesome..ness..
