I can't blame them. I've tasted one too many Goldilocks and Red Ribbon cake treats and I can't tell the difference anymore. The bakeshop war seems to be dulling the competitors' edge.
As I was leaving the Purple Oven shop, I couldn't help but realize that the cakes they have are next to contraband pastries. While I was there for my Lemon Cake purchase (a big, thick-layered round cake that set me back P750), cars and taxi cabs were also starting to occupy the small street right outside. It was like cake addicts were on schedule to get their pastry fix.
The cake I bought was for the birthday of my siblings who were celebrating their birthday as twin brothers. The lemon was not as strong as I expected which was fine because I didn't want to be twitching my face per bite. It came in various layers of wafer, nuts, icing, and more.
How To Get There
I can't tell you or I'd have to kill you. Purple Oven made me swear. Kidding!
Even if I told you where the little cozy nook is located, you'd find it hard to locate. If you happen to know the flower group of motels in Pasig City, turn left to the 1st street that precedes the sprawling sex-oriented property. Yes, Purple Oven is situated next to the motel center of Metro Manila. No wonder when people are heartbroken, they are either compelled to get it dirty with a rebound or simply pay a hefty price for a very delicious cake.
