New cake from an old classic

The caramel icing that outlines the cake’s elegant silhouette gives it a light and dainty vibe. On top of the cake are elegant drops of icing that give it an airy cloud-like look, with caramel syrup on the center. The cake also looks just as elegant when sliced — you can see the soft chiffon layers inside and the enticing cream-colored icing in between. Prices start at P479 for the junior size and P669 for the regular size.
