Is there anything that makes you light up like a Christmas tree whenever you see it? For some women like Carrie of Sex and the City, it’s shoes. For car aficionados, it may be ATV tires or new wheels. For me, it’s cakes. Whenever I see a cake, even the cupcakes you can buy for P10 in small town bakeries, my eyes light up and I can’t seem to help myself from trying it. That’s why I’m so thankful that in the last three months, my life’s been cakeful.
Aside from the cakes at Chocolate Kiss which I got to taste for the first time last September, here are some of the cakes — and cupcakes — that satisfied my huge tummy in the last three months.

Layers of dark chocolate cake filled with cream cheese and chocolate candy sprinkles. What’s not to like? Perfect with a cup of black coffee or, in our case, Buddy’s spaghetti.
