If I could write a love letter addressed to cakes, you know I would. If I could sing a love song about cakes, you know I would. If I could trade jewels for cakes, hmm… maybe I would. That’s how much I love cakes. Other women go crazy over shelves of shoes or designer bags, but my heart skips a beat at the sight of pretty cakes on glass display cases. Much like a moth to a flame, I was naturally drawn to the newly-opened The Cake Club by Diamond Hotel at the Bonifacio High Street Central (BHSC).
It’s fascinating how the Diamond Hotel is becoming more and more recognized for its gastronomic gems, starting with its legendary ensaymada. I visited The Cake Club in BHSC yesterday and swooned at the dazzling array of mini-cakes and pastries.
But first, lunch. The Grilled Reuben Sandwich (P310) had me at sauerkraut. Chunky and incredibly tender homemade corned beef, emmental cheese and sauerkraut sandwiched between toasted wheat bread slices and served with a generous amount of fries — it’s one of the most satisfying sandwiches I’ve ever had in my life! Really yummy.
But this is what I traveled all the way to the Fort for —
Named after the Diamond Hotel‘s general manager, Vanessa (P250) is a glorious dessert consisting of pistachio macarons filled with fresh strawberries and cream, and surprise layers of pistachio paste and strawberry paste. I just loved the harmony of the nutty and fruity flavors as well as the textural delights of subtly crisp cookies, delicate cream and paste.
As a special treat, The Cake Club is offering a 20% discount on meals, cakes, and ice cream until April 15th. Simply like the Diamond Hotel Philippines‘ facebook page and print a copy of the promotional voucher to avail yourself of the discount. Ain’t that sweet?
