Slice of Pia Cayetano’s

Slice Cafe cupcakes and muffins

The other side of the outdoorsy, eco-defending senadora Pia Cayetano is revealing. Slice cafe/bakery in Bonifacio High St. Central in Taguig is a slice of her creativity and enthusiasm for healthful living.

According to Slice’s Facebook page, “Slice is where breakfast is served all day, dessert is at the top of the menu and healthy alternatives are always recommended.”

After going out of town over the weekend, Ericke came home with boxes of Slice muffins and cupcakes. She handed me my yema cupcake, Slice’s bestseller. The size is modest. The yema (candied egg yolk) matched the beautiful, fairly thin texture of the chocolate cupcake, all in all tasting much like a Toffifee sans a hazelnut. Love the idea of prettifying a cupcake with dainty swirl roses.

Sticking to Slice’s eco-friendly attitude, the boxes came in a reusable bag. Clever packaging is important to punch up an otherwise hard-to-embrace cause and culture besides attracting people to wonderful options. More power to Slice!

A surprise cupcake from Cupcake Princess

I received the prettily packaged cupcake from Lala Baraoidan via Marianne Pasion via Ericke.  The baby is worth sharing in the blog.  The sinfully generous, yummy frosting closely resembles the taste of real Oreo filling — a treat ‘coz I  super adore the white of an Oreo — to me, it’s the core of an Oreo sandwich such as it’s the icing that makes a cupcake.
(Thanks, girls!)
