The not so humble pie at Osvaldo’s

Osvaldo's Cakes

I am constantly enamored of beautifully crafted cakes. Let’s go back to Davao for this post.

Cake studio Osvaldo’s Cakes has all the right ingredients — an accessible location, avant-garde cakes, a cosmopolitan ambiance, a space to eat the decadent cakes and a friendly, good-looking master baker. Say hello to Joel Rodriguez, graduate of the Wilton School Cake Decorating in Illinois, USA.

Joel’s cakes look good as well as taste good. Originally from Cotabato City, he has created some of Davao’s most talked about cakes and pies.

Straight after a FoodPrints shoot, the crew hastily dipped their forks into the alluring desserts. So fleeting that I failed to jot down the specifics. I remember a strikingly delicious blue cheese cheesecake. And, of course, the pomelo lemon pie, which actually tastes more interesting than a key lime pie. It has the right balance of the delicate kinds of tart and sweet. One glorious forkful.
