MANGOES AND CREAM | http://www.urmajestysire.wordpress.com | Al rights reserved

A few weeks ago while visiting our Tita, she handed me these big ripe mangoes and told me to do ‘something’ out of it. Challenge accepted!

Here’s what I came up with, a basic, healthier version of a cross between a no-bake crumble pie and and mango ice cream. There are also additional recipes included if you want to make this it into a no-bake pie or fridge cake, a homemade ice cream or a version of ‘Mango Bravo’ from a popular artisan bakery *winks* hehe!


3 to 4 big ripe mangoes, cubed

1 pack/cup all-purpose cream or heavy cream, chilled

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 zest of a lemon

2 tbsp brown sugar,  optional (I didn’t put sugar though, the sweetness of the mangoes and vanilla is enough)

1/2 cup lengua de gato or graham crackers, crushed (will post my lengua de gato link here)

REMILLY’S YEMA CAKE: Caramel milky goodness and more

Different versions of caramel cake, yema cake and pastillas cake abound in the Metro. An all-time favorite version is from a cake shop located in Timog. That was until I tasted Remilly’s Yema Cake!

Chanced upon their addictive cakes after canvassing interior decors and decided to try single serving versions of their Caramel and Yema-Pastillas cakes (they have other variants like ube, mocha, etc.)

Long story short, the cakes were so delicious and its not ‘nakakaumay’ or too sweet! The caramel has generous milky sauce and does not have that ‘burned milk’ taste, topped with chocolate shavings. The yema-pastillas is not too sweet and has generous milky sauce and topped with cheese shavings.

The best part, each single version is less than Php100! They also have rolls (whole & half) and full cake versions too!

Aside from cakes and rolls they also offer custom-made cakes, cupcakes and other pastries.

THE BUNNY BAKER: A Cafe and Cake Studio

At THE BUNNY BAKER CAFE AND CAKE STUDIO: (Clockwise) Bunny Macarons, Speculoos Gelato, Cafe Latte, a wide array of gelato and Ate Fely enjoying the ambience.

Before the regular grocery shopping Ate Fely and I went to THE BUNNY BAKER CAFE AND CAKE STUDIO. Its fairly near us plus we also checked out the new nail spa and grocery store at the same building!

They have a wide array of ‘Gelato’; Oreos & Cream, Serenitea Okinawa, MILO, Reese’s, Irish Cream, Berrific and Nutella to name a few!

A closer look at the ‘Gelato’ counter
Of course they have cupcakes, and of special flavors even!

The Bunny Baker is also the cake studio which made the life-size Manny Pacquiao cake a few months ago.

Here are some of their cake studio’s designs

SUGAR CRAVINGS: Satisfy your sugar cravings!

SUGAR CRAVINGS  interiors is so dainty!
SUGAR CRAVINGS interiors is so dainty!

I received an open invite from the owner of SUGAR CRAVINGS in February but had the time to visit with my cousin after almost a month because of the daily show.

The location is not ‘commuter-friendly’ unless you are familiar with DAMAR Village along araneta Avenue, SUGAR CRAVINGS is right beside its main entrance. Or if familiar with commuting along Araneta Avenue, you can take the Jeepney which goes from Araneta VAnue to La Loma.

We stayed at their VIP area wherein you may hold your special occasions, a private tea party or just want a bit of peace and quiet while dining.

Upon entering you’ll be greeted by a huge ‘Ferris Wheel’ cupcake vessel, which I would definitely like to have for family gatherings. At the main cafe, the dainty interiors, pink & white with floral walls and pink mini-chandeliers transports you to a tea party mood.

If you want a meal before going on a sugar rush like me, they have an ala carte menu and coffee to boot.

I Super liked this personalized Mango Crepe at SUGAR CRAVINGS!
SUGAR CRAVINGS is a kikay selfie-addict’s wonderland!

Their dessert buffet fare consists of cookies, cakes, mini creme puffs, ice cream with cereal or sprinkles, shot-glass creamy desserts, chocolate crinkles, different brownies, yema balls, etc.

I also liked that they have ‘dynamite’, green mango and ‘singkamas’ (turnip) slices with ‘bagoong’ (shrimp paste) to sort of break the sugar taste if need be.

The place is perfect for private functions and celebrations (Glaiza De Castro and her fans had a mini-gathering here a few weeks ago) or for a quiet date with loved ones.
