Fast forward to 12 years... although daddy could no longer treat me to Red Ribbon (as he's in heaven now), this place has always been our family's choice when it comes to cakes and pastries. My top 5 food items from them? Rocky Road Cake, Black Forest Cake, Cinnamon Roll, Silvanas, and Palabok. For nearly half of Red Ribbon's existence, we've been big fans, and we still are.
Last night, I was one of the lucky people who was able to taste Red Ribbon's new cake. Actually, it has been in their stands for a few days already, but the actual launch was today. The name of the cake? The Cookies and Cream with Oreo cake. Hmmmm... sounds great, huh? Imagine... delectable chocolate cookie layer, layers of creamy cookies and cream filling, moist vanilla chiffon cake, heavenly chocolate chiffon cake, luscious white creamy icing, topped with the delightful Oreo cookie we all just love. Uh umm, indeed!
It really sounded great, but it actually tasted way much greater than it sounded. Although it may sound very sweet given the anatomy of the cake, it wasn't really sweet at all. It was such a pleasure to eat - perfect when cold and served with a hot cup of coffee or tea. Cookie has always been many people's comfort food and one of the best loved foods of all ages, and now.. with this cake, we can no longer just enjoy cookies from the foil it comes in or from the jar where we store them.
I took home one junior sized Cookies and Cream cake and let my family and friends taste it. They, too, took delight in eating the cake.
I guess this picture of my sister sums it all up.
Next time you crave for cake, try this one, you'll love it, too!
