Just got a taste of Cake2Go’s Cadbury Boston Cream Pie. According to Cake2Go, this ‘cake’ got its distinction as the official STATE DESSERT of Massachusetts, in December 12, 1996.

And so, these are the layers of the ‘cake’.

1st layer –cream

2nd layer – custard

3rd layer – vanilla sponge cake

4th layer – very thin layer of meringue

5th layer – custard

5th layer – very thin layer of meringue (again)

7th layer – Vanilla sponge cake

6th layer – cream

All of these covered in Cadbury milk chocolate ganache…isn’t this heaven?

Cadbury Boston Cream Pie

Going back five years ago, I had a friend who often raved about Cake2Go’s ‘Toblerone Overload’ cake. I wasn’t quite familiar with the brand name at first, as the more familiar names when it comes to cakes here are Goldilocks and Red Ribbon. Cake2Go only has six branches at the moment and the good thing about it is they deliver cakes! I just have no idea how much the delivery charge is, I guess it depends on where you want to have the cake(s) delivered. Take note that they do NOT deliver just about everywhere yet. So better give the branch nearest your area a call to see if they can deliver.

They have different sizes and shapes of cakes which can serve up to ten people at the most and they also have a single serve available – that is, if you want to give your chosen flavor a taste test before buying a whole cake. Because let’s face it, cakes here don’t come cheap. I mean, quality wise, I’m thumbs up but with good quality comes a high price for each cake. Comparing with Goldilocks or Red Ribbon – cakes range from P250 and up for the rolls and P450 to P550+ for the round, square and rectangle cakes. Most people would end up giving cakes from these brands as a gift because 1) they have a lot of branches in malls and in business centers 2) the price, is for the masses – it’s something that can fit the budget. But as for Cake2Go, cake prices range from P95 to P165 for single serve cakes (a 3” cake) and as for their round, square or rectangle cakes, prices range from P400 to P695 and they only have six branches so far. Yes, like I said, the cakes here don’t come cheap, although it’s still inside my budget but I think these cakes deserve only to be served on very special occasions. I’m not comparing because I’m siding with Red Ribbon or Goldilocks (I’m a actually a Red Ribbon fan, hehe!) but sometimes, your palate deserves something new. I’m just saying that sometimes, it’s good to explore other foods/desserts out there and not stick to the more well known bakeshops/dessert stores that tend to, well…bore your taste buds sooner or later. Why not try something that’s about to become famous? Because sometimes, the lesser known names are the ones that provide high quality with their merchandise.

I was actually thinking it would be too sweet as soon as I was served my first slice – surprisingly, it’s not. Every layer has the right amount of sweetness and even the chocolate ganache does not overwhelm the perfect combination of cream, custard, sponge cake and meringue. It’s the perfect melt in your mouth goodness that will leave you smiling afterwards.

So if you get to be around the places where there is a Cake2Go branch and if you have the budget, try their cakes. I’m telling you, it will be all worth it.
