Marta's Cakes

Food is an international language that is well understood by many and it is probably because our taste buds has the most discriminative standards that is if once satisfied... it can bring us to a whole pleasurable sensation and through it we can convey messages such as emotions, moods and even history and background.

Most people would skip desserts because of health issues or sometimes just to control oneself to indulge into those sinful calorie-packed yet heavenly sweets, but I say we should live to the fullest and by that I mean somehow we should still be able to taste what we crave for but probably under moderation if some circumstances are at stake.

Now, to what has started as a home business to a retail pastry store that offers you only the best comes Marta's Cakes. This is actually the first time that I get to encounter them despite that they actually have a store here at the south which is located at Alabang Town Center where I usually go so often.

What makes Marta's Cake different from other pastry shop is their very colorful and happy ambiance that will truly remind you of those childhood days when you crave to have gone inside a house full of candies another is their very unique yet delicious cakes,  cupcakes and cookies that are decorated at its finest with fully edible toppers (will show you pictures of them as we go on) and lastly, the beauty of customization, yes you can customize your cakes, cupcakes and cookies here! You may either want to do it yourself if you have the skill or you may just let them know what you specifically want and they will do it for you in a matter of just days! No need to wait for that months of long period if you want to have that very exquisite decorated cake for your big event/s.

Angeline Rodriguez, Isabel Cuerva Kahn and me.

Isabel is the Operations Manager (means she gets to do most of the work here), and I say I have learned so much about the background of this store from its humble beginnings up to their day-to-day dilemma and finally meeting up to their means for success.

I can say that I am a food aficionado, I like eating a lot but more than it I like cooking and one of the things I learned from Isabel is that if you cook good, chances are you bake bad and vice versa. I must admit that I was sad when she told me that, baking is something I really want to do too although she quickly said that practice also makes perfect especially if you are very passionate about it (Hope for me, yey!).

Great cake toppers for a great summer themed cake.

Yes they have updated toppers such as that of Pants vs Zombies and Angry Birds lol!

and also from Star Wars!

They got some creepy designs too and I say they do it pretty good with all those details just like this dinosaur.

Next up, let me show you some of their cupcakes:

Their Velvet Cupcake is Angel's favorite, she says it's the best velvet cupcake she has ever tasted. I say I'll have it as soon as I get to drop by at Town.

Clever eh? Ice cream cupcake!

Now THIS! This is what every fashion enthusiast would like to eat!

Now off to their cakes:

Awesome big cupcake right?!

This would be my favorite cake for a baby.

I just love how detailed there crafts are.

Hello there Harry Potter fans!

Finally an apple that is edible! ;)

Now this right here is a genuine HAPPY MEAL!

Remember that I told you that here in Marta's Cake you can customize your pastries? Well we lucky bloggers get to experience 'em. Take a look at the following:

This is our customize cookies kit.

While this one is our customize cupcakes kit.

If you'll do the activity inside their store you may get these icing bottles but if you'll have them delivered at your respective venues then no worries because they will provide you the kits with different colored icings. 

This is how a cookie looks like before you get to design it.
Sorry I wasn't able to take a picture of an undesigned cupcake.

Angeline Rodriguez of Wonder Woman Rises

This one over here has done a really great job with his cupcakes, so sad I didn't even take a picture of it.

Paul Chuapoco of The PR Guy

Their shakes are good! Really good!

Now let's see what we did:

These are from Ana, she says it's a mess but those tribal designs looks so yummy for me, don't you think so guys?

These are from Paul, he is so creative! Especially with... 

...this one over here! It is for Angel, a logo of Wonder Woman.

 These are the cookies that I made.

 Then here are my cupcakes... I really wonder if you guys would eat something that looks like this. By the way, thanks for Jacob because it is from him I get to have an idea how to design it.
