|Estrel's Caramel Cake, Quezon City|
Not familiar with Scout Tobias road my sister and I bravely drove around this area to look for Estrel’s Caramel cake. My sister was the first one to have tasted the famous Caramel cake. And ever since, she have pleaded that I take her to Estrel’s. She even printed a Google map showing the location of Estrel’s. Since it was her birthday and she was willing to pay for the gas and the cake, I offered my chauffer service for free.
The place was a bit hard to find since its small but a very quaint place. There were a lot of parked cars in front of the store, so we have to park one block away from the store. It is said that Estrel’s Caramel Cake started way back 1946, and till now, competing with other famous cake houses in the country. Minutes away from finding the reason why this cake attracts a lot of people, I was getting excited.
From the display shelf you can see their hand-made cake. I really loved their icing flowers; I haven’t seen an original soft icing flower in years. Plus the design of the cake is very well crafted, everything is carefully detailed and done it an artistic way.
Sadly, we weren’t able to buy a caramel cake that day, their best seller, they told us to place a call for a caramel cake a day before. But we opted for their second best seller the Marshmallow Butter Cake with 10x12 inches in size.
There were a lot of people coming in and out of the store so; I was really excited to have a taste of this cake. My verdict for Estrel’s Marshmallow Butter cake, the chiffon was very soft almost like a melts-in-the-mouth kind of feeling, not very stiff like most commercial cake. The sweetness is just perfect for your taste bud, the marshmallow mixes well with the buttery tastes of the chiffon and the soft flower icing was perfect.
