Reasonably Priced Mango Chantily Cake by Goldilocks

I like this Mango Chantily cake. It has a fair amount of mango bits, cream and it has mango marshmallows. I like this cake better than butter cream cakes.Best of all, the price for the whole cake is only P390!  Yup, I could have bought that greeting cake from Red Ribbon worth P299, but this mango cake looks a bit more festive and special.

Layers of mango and vanilla chiffon filled with Italian icing and mango jam and decorated with Mango marshmallows

The UP students are at it again! This time, it's the UP Industrial Engineering Club, a duly recognized organization based in the University of the Philippines – Diliman College of Engineering,  who is organizing a fundraising event called FOODPORT 2013! It's a food fair for cuisines from different countries and cultures.  Proceeds from the event will benefit the UP IE Club Scholarship Fund, our which sends bright but underprivileged students through college.

The picture pretty much says it all. The event will be held beside Christ the King Church along Greenmeadows Avenue. on November 30 to December 1, 2013 only from 6am to 10PM.

I am deeply saddened that I won't be able to cover the event because I'm not available on those dates, but I'm sure it will be a blast just like the recently concluded Foodgasm III event.

Tous Les Jours' Monster Cake

Last October 31, I was having a hard time deciding where to buy the perfect Halloween cake for my family. There were plenty of choices actually. Fortune, Goldilocks, Tous Les Jours, etc. In the end, I chose Tous Les Jours because of the name and because I had a voucher from Deal Grocer :P

Tous Les Jours' Blue Monster Cake -
Chocolate chiffon covered in buttercream
When I first saw the cake, my first reaction was, "'s a bit small." I placed a ruler on top of it and it only measures almost 7 inches.

Chocolate chiffon with choco filling.
The inside is very similar to their bear cake which was quite disappointing for me.

The taste was so-so. Nothing much to brag about - only the design. I told myself not never to buy any cakes with butter cream icing on them.

What really made me sad was their price of P698! It's sooo expensive! At this price, I should have bought a 12x12 chocolate cake from Goldilocks or a regular sized Black Forest from Red Ribbon or better yet, a Mango Bravo from Contis'! *sigh* Sorry, Tous Les Jours. I love your store and I love your bread and pastries, but for this particular cake, it's a thumbs down for me.

Nissin's Creamy Carbonara: A Quick Fix for Carbonara Cravings

So far, this is the best tasting instant carbonara noodles I've tasted or maybe this is the only one around.  Whenever I crave for some carbonara and I only have 20 pesos in my pocket, Nissin's Creamy Carbonara is way to go. One pack only costs P10.00.

This is NOT a paid advertisement. I'm sharing this from my own personal experience.
