The Most Popular Cakes in Manila (Dimpy’s Kitchen, Estrel’s, Cuerva Bakeshop)

Where can you get the best cakes in Metro Manila? For this holiday special, we visited the best hidden secrets of the city to find the answer to this very important question. This is an exclusive look into the kitchens of the people behind Dimpy’s Kitchen, Estrel’s Caramel Cakes, and Cuerva Bakeshop to see all the magic happening before your eyes!

Cakes are a symbol of celebration for many households because they’re usually served during birthdays and special occasions. Nowadays, serving cake is still considered a luxury, but it is now more common to have them during simpler events that call for small celebrations. Now, let’s eat some cake!

Erratum: Names of Estrel’s owners are Ms. Joy Navarro and Ms. Gina Navarro. Apologies for the confusion!
