Brighten Up Your Day with Red Ribbon

One of my fondest memories in college was when my friends and I went to Makati City to check out a library for communications related books. I told my friends that my father worked near where we were, and we could drop by his office to ask for help regarding certain aspects of our project. My father couldn't help us, but in his efforts not to really break our spirits, he treated us to Red Ribbon. I remember I had their spaghetti and their Black Forest Cake.

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!

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
