WHEN IN MANILA, there is always that one place that will make you feel like a princess straight from a fairy tale book or a chivalrous prince attending a sophisticated tea party.
Pastry Princess, the newest pastry store in town is that one place that can turn all your fairy tale fantasies into reality.
Known for their out of this world cupcakes, superb lattes, and other pastries that will keep you coming back for more, I knew I had to check this place out. So last Saturday, my friends and I decided to visit the amazing Pastry Princess.
As soon as we got in this heavenly store and saw the mouth-watering cupcake display, my friends and I immediately shoved our diet plans in the farthest ends of our brains and readied ourselves for Pastry Princess’ amazing goodies.
Usually my friends and I go for the bestsellers or what we think is the best of the best. But in this case, we couldn’t make up or minds so instead we ordered all of Pastry Princess’ cute and delish cupcakes with some other mouth-watering delights from their menu.
First off is Pastry Princess’ Cookies and Cream with Cookies and Cream Frosting. This cupcake was simply delicious. And the mini Oreo on top is just too cute for words.
Pastry Princess’ number one bestseller, the Red Velvet; and after biting into this fluffy cake, its not hard to see why people can’t keep their hands off of Pastry Princess’ super good Red Velvet.
Usually when I am in the mood for something sweet I would never have even spared this Green Tea cupcake a glance. Boy was I wrong. This light and fluffy cupcake is one of the best cupcakes in the bunch!
One can’t be called a Filipino if you’ve never fallen into the hands of the mighty Choc-nut. And this Choc-nut cupcake is just perfect for the typical Filipino.
Pastry Princess’ Flourless Chocolate cupcake is just amazeballs! I love the melt-in-your-mouth feel of this cupcake. It doesn’t hurt that the cupcake is oozing with chocolate goodness too!
With all the unique flavors of cupcakes that Pastry Princess offers, I was expecting the Vanilla cupcake with Vanilla Buttercream to take the backseat. But again, Pastry Princess proved me wrong. Despite being one of the simpler flavors, the taste is just out of this world good!
If you’re in the mood for some luxurious cupcakes then Pastry Princess’ Truffle Cupcake is the one for you! With rich chocolatey goodness, your will power just won’t cut it.
This Strawberry cupcake is just too pretty to eat up. But like all the other cupcakes from Pastry Princess, once you start popping you can never bring yourself to stop.
I’ve always been a huge fan of peanut butter…so as soon as the server laid the Peanut Butter Delight cupcake on our table I immediately droved my fork into it. And imagine my surprise with strawberry jam came oozing out. Peanut butter and jelly…perfect!
Despite all the amazing cupcakes, there will always be that one that will stand out. So without further ado, here are my friends and my favorites for the day.
My beautiful photog for the day, Wilamy, just couldn’t keep her hands or should I say her fork off this amazing Carrot cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
My friend, Winona, on the other hand absolutely loved Pastry Princess’ Salted Caramel cupcake.
As for me, this beautiful Banoffee cupcake turned my world upside down.
So when you’re in the mood for something sweet, fantastic, and just plain beautiful head on over to Pastry Princess WHEN IN MANILA.
