Almost every province in the Philippines has its own locally made glutinous treat. After all, Filipinos are known to use rice to make sticky snacks or cakes all year round. It's when Christmas time that some of those become stellar. Taking center stage during the holidays along with the bibingka is puto bumbong, a lilac-colored rice cake. Both are sold in abundance when the traditional simbang gabi or misa de gallo (night mass) is kicked off on the 16th of December.

Somewhere in Pasig City's delicious distict of Kapitolyo, Lia's Cakes In Season has managed to successfully marry the charming shape of a bundt cake with the reliable taste of puto bumbong. The tasty result is the Puto Bumbong Cake that can only be had at the newly-renovated dining venue of the bakeshop and restaurant at East Capitol Drive.






New Look of Lia's

My last visit of Lia's Cakes In Season was months before it had an interior makeover. I recently returned to check out the place and the change of design inside was a stunning use of space as it looked more spacious even with the risk of using bold colors.

The Puto Bumbong Cake

The highlight of my visit was a taste test of the Puto Bumbong Cake. A slice of the 8" inventive dessert is also a sampling of generous shredded coconut. The taste was enhanced with just enough serving of sweet muscovado which was applied in a decadent manner.




Originally named by the owner's mom (Mommy Lia herself) as Puto Bum-Bundt Cake, the new comfort snack was eventually changed to Puto Bumbong Cake to continue the celebration of the traditional delicacy.

I was glad to immediately dig into it while it was still hot because it's best consumed that way. An order can take a few minutes only anyway. Waiting for something as delicious and filling is always a treat in itself. Puto Cupcakes and Puto Bumbong Bars are also available at the bakeshop.

    1. I'm planning to order this! So if I'll have to travel to take it home from Pasig to Cavite, it won't be as enjoyable anymore? Ack.
