Caramia Ube Cake (P880)
Long before ube became a worldwide phenomenon, Filipino chefs and bakers were already utilizing this amazing yam. Ube halaya, ube ice cream, ube doughnuts, you name it! However, few have mastered the delicate art of the ube cake and Caramia is one of them.
What to expect with Caramia’s ube cake? Classic and authentic no-frills Filipino flavor. You get beautiful layers of ube chiffon and ube halaya filling topped with fluffy whipped cream. Its soft, smooth, and creamy interior contrast beautifully with the grainy texture of the jam.
This exquisite cake is made to impress with its tall presentation. Every slice is sure to be a delight, despite its lightness. Plus it pairs perfectly with coffee or tea or it can be your choice of dessert for Noche Buena.
Mrs.Field’s Cookie Boxes (Small P399, Medium P549, Large P649)
Soft and chewy cookie fans, rejoice! You can now share your love for the popular Mrs. Fields cookies conveniently packed in a decorative gift box. This chocolate chip cookie has gained a worldwide reputation for only using the finest ingredients of 100% chocolates, butter, and cream.
The cookie comes with a moist texture and a familiar brown butter flavor that enhances the overall taste. When heated, it becomes extra special thanks to the generous serving of very sweet chocolate chips throughout. Trust us, the extra Holiday calories are worth it.
Cafe Mary Grace Cheese Rolls (Box of 6, P384)
In the world of yummy pastries, cheese rolls have almost become synonymous with Mary Grace. It’s the name that immediately comes to mind and for good reason!
The bread is delicate and as soft as a pillow that it basically melts in the mouth. Meanwhile, the cheese leans on the creamy, slightly salty side without being overpowering. It’s topped with creamed butter and sugar which gives the lightweight pastry the texture it needs.
Light yet filling, rich but not overwhelming – anyone would be happy to receive this cheesy gift for the Holidays.
Cafe Mary Grace Ensaymada (Box of 6, P620)
Christmas is ensaymada season, don’t you agree? And we say nobody has perfected it than Mary Grace. Their classic ensaymada is stripped off the fusion-laden riffs you’ll find around the metro.
Enjoy delicate, fluffy bread topped with creamy butter, granulated sugar, and sharp powdered queso de bola. Basically, it’s heaven you can taste. A box of this sinfully reminiscent treat is sure to ignite the holiday spirit.
Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Winter Dream Tea Gift Set (P1,299)
