Red Velvet Cake by La Marea

Before, I only knew of chocolate flavored cakes, butter cakes, vanilla cakes and all the other cakes that are either colored dark brown or yellowish white. I never knew the existence of a red velvet cake. But after being introduced to one at work and after tasting one, I got hooked.

You see my mom’s palate is sensitive to chocolate cakes however yummy they are. Which is why I need to make sure that the cakes I buy are chocolate-friendly so that my mom could eat too. But there are just days where my mom becomes a pain in the a** when she tries to have a small bite since there’s a medicine that can relieve her of her misery in case she gets allergies.

Anyway, the good thing is that I discovered the existence of red velvet cakes. Not only are they the yummiest but flavor-friendly to the rest of my family too. 😉

I have tasted one of the best red velvet cup cakes from Leonas a month ago and I was craving for one up to now. But last week, I got the chance to meet another version from La Marea’s Pastry Shop. When we brought a new blogger friend, Barbie, to the La Marea shop at IT Park. After we dined at Chicken Charlie, she ordered one whereas the rest of us ordered our own deserts.

I ordered La Marea’s famous classic warm brownie cup and after helping myself with one, I found out that the red velvet cup cake was lacking in sweetness perhaps due to the sweets overload I went through after eating my warm brownie cup, my friend’s leche flan, and another meringue cake.

The next time I visit La Marea, I’ll make sure I’ll just order their red velvet cup cake to fully determine if it can match the yummy red velvets that I’ve tried before. 😉
