I’ve heard a lot of raves about Marta Matute’s cakes – I’ve seen quite a few and tasted only one. I liked the colorfulness of her cakes! That is what actually sets her apart from the other cake makers – the style she uses to decorate her cakes.
I read from Market Man’s post that she opened shop in Serendra. I was there about a month ago – but missed it! But about 2 weeks ago – I made it a point to go and visit the place – to see what it was about.
Before I entered the shop – there was a sign at the door that said they were on dry run. And so when I entered the shop – I was expecting to see lots of people going gaga in the kitchen – kind of like what I saw in another dessert place just down the street. But alas – it was not! Instead of chaos – there was complete steady-ness. I was welcomed by a spacious restaurant – a well lit store, cute tables and chairs for adults and kids – a chiller with colorful goodies – and Ms. Marta Matute herself!
She greeted me and my Panget with a pretty smile! Introduced her products one by one as she pointed them out on the display. As always – I picked the Vanilla Mini-Cake while my panget got the Mocha Mini-Cake (because of it’s orange colored icing). The person behind the counter was very courteous and friendly – she even asked us if we wanted water.
Vanilla Mini-Cake with Butter Cream Icing and beside it is what it looks like in the middle – I’m sort of a neat freak – Hahaha!!
I liked the Mini-Cakes because they’re firmer – there’s more bite to it compared to a cupcake (but I still love cupcakes! – the ones that I make of course! Just Kidding!) My Panget said that when he tasted my Vanilla cake – he was amazed because – for the first time ever – he tasted the vanilla in the Vanilla Mini-Cake! Thank goodness he liked it! He’s such a sweet tooth pa naman! Now – will I be going back? Most definitely! For the cakes and for the Mini-Cake Decorating activity – that should be fun! 🙂
