vanilla cupcake bakery

this post is for all of my teenage filipino readers who 
1. love vintage things
2. love sweet treats




A few weeks ago, I was invited to the opening of the most delicious cupcake store in the whole Philippines by far - Vanilla Cupcake Bakery! I'm serious, you guys, this is going to be the next big thing, and you - reader - better be the first among your friends to know about it!





When it comes to eating cupcakes, many things can influence the sweet experience that you experience on your first bite. One, it's the ambiance of the place you're eating in. I'll let you know - a cute shop with vintage furniture totally delivers a vintage, making it ten times better to eat their cupcakes! They have the cutest furniture and the cutest store look - definitely one of the most noteworthy restaurant designs here in Manila. SO unique!





What I love most about their shop besides how they fix it up is the variety of their cupcakes. Some cupcake stores that I know of in the Philippines normally have just one main flavor, or one main dish that everyone keeps coming at. When I order and buy from Vanilla, there are so many for me to choose from! From their classic Vanilla Cupcake (definitely a must get) to their NY Cheesecake, you can never be disappointed.












I think that the most fun I can have in Vanilla is with my mom or my best friend. Although it is a brilliant place for families and friends to come together and eat cupcakes, I think that the girls of the family would have the most fun. My tip? Head over to Trinoma or Glorietta right now and bring your friends along! Hurry up and get the cupcakes while they still last!




Good cupcakes and a good store altogether is not easy to find. I'm so happy that I've finally found one.

My favorites:
- Vanilla Cupcake
- NY Cheesecake
- Red Velvet
- Salted Caramel
- Nutella Chocolate
- Iced Tea

ohmygoodness. you completely just made me hungry. which isn't a good thing, seeing I don't live in the Philippines. :) {and I don't think I knew you did either! news, news. ;)} I just LOVE the atmosphere of that little place, and the cupcakes look like they're to die for. {not literally, of course.}

love these pictures, Stella, and someday I may just have to visit this little place. ;)

The ambiance is excellent. I find their RVC a very dry. You pay php85 for a piece of RVC and it is natural that you make urself believe that what ur eating is delicious. Thier salted caramel is good though.

I meant "their" not thier..

We have shops like this in my country, love them! I've never tried one of their Vanilla Flavors though...
Looks delish, thanks for sharing!

Stella said...

Not all of their flavors might tickle your fancy, but yes - their ambiance is indeed excellent - it definitely adds to the excitement to the experience of eating a single cupcake. :) salted caramel for the win!!

Stella said...

Your comments are the most hilarious. Haha! I love it!

Vanilla Cupcakes Bakery may be the best-looking cupcake store in the country but the taste of their cupcakes fall short. There are many other cupcakes out there that are more delicious, more moist and are not terribly expensive. I've tried out a number of their cupcakes and I got really disappointed. Not moist, too sweet, frosting still has grainy texture from sugar. Just my honest opinion. Thank you!
