We were looking for a cake shop at GH and we found this. Nice cake decor and reasonable price (cannot find the photo of the cake). 128536128536

Been such a cake person for the last week, probably cause it was my birthday week hahaha! Anyway, the last cakes I had to celebrate my birthday were from Icings'. The first, Pistachio Paradise, was a combination of chocolate, pistachio and buttercream! It wasn't light but it wasn't too heavy either. The other cake, Coffee Layer Gateau, I didn't get to try because aesthetically I didn't find it very appealing hehe!

Icing's Pork Buns are surely a quick , more affordable, and delicious fix when the craving for 'em schmuckers arise.

A few weeks ago, I took the kids to Tim Ho Wan. They immensely loved the Pork Buns but became quite restless with the wait. Ever since, they have been bugging me for another round of the famous buns. They had the craving but hated the wait..dilemma! Even if I was willing to do the lining up, the place had a limit as to the number of buns a person can order.

Good thing I remembered enjoying Icing's Pork Buns (they call it Sweet and Salty Buns) way before Tim Ho Wan opened locally. I asked the kids if they were willing to try the pork bun from a different place. They agreed.

Certainly not a dead-ringer for Tim Ho Wan's Pork Buns. But the kids did enjoy Icing's Sweet & Salty Buns as much as I did. The bun was moist and slightly sweet (the kids said it tasted like Coffee Buns). The filling, nicely sweet-salty with moist, tender, flavorful chopped stewed pork---more like asado. While same in size, flavor-wise quite different from Tim Ho Wan's (with their signature crusty bun and Hoisin flavored bbq pork).

For a box of 6, priced at 210 (coming out at 35 each). A good alternative indeed considering no need for the long wait, the limited number of pieces one can order, and priced more affordably.

I've been eyeing on this store for months now particularly with their cakes but because of the lack of occasion and obesity that I restrict myself not to give in with my selfish pleasures. so last week it was a double celebration because my two favorite cousins had their birthday so I opted for this store just to satisfy my own curiosity of their products.

their cakes give pleasure to my eyes that I had to stand in front of them for a few minutes. choosing what to grab was a dilemma. finally I consulted the lady and asked their best seller and she said several one including this Ube Pandan Cake. The pair kinda interests me, cause its something new since I've only tried one ube cake in my entire life and that's from red ribbon and even mixing it with pandan which I can only try with the pair of buko was something unusual. plus the design of the cake was simple, I didn't want it to be too pretty because the ones celebrating are boys. i asked the lady if we can put a Happy Birthday Label and she said all they have are there pre-made choco bars where the happy birthday sign is on. the hand writing was pretty but hard to understand, the lady was also kind to give me two candles :)

and now the cake, it had layers of ube and pandan each interchanging completing 4 and it sandwich a very yummy feeling of pandan flavored whipped cream!!! the cake was moist and the filling was so creamy that it was like a melt in your mouth cake. sooooo good! if I hadn't known that it was a cake I could have mistaken it to be a buko pandan dessert. the cake to icing ratio was perfect, wasn't too sweet. my new favorite cake shop 128525

Icings' Sweet and Salty Buns. Baked, moist , soft, lightly sweet bread buns stuffed with a sweet-salty mix of stewed tender pork.

I have always liked commercially available pork buns/asado rolls for some quick snack eating. Prior to tasting Icings' version, I was okay with French Baker's asado rolls.

I must say that Icings' version is much better and more affordable. I liked the baked bun's consistency. It was nicely soft, moist, lightly sweet (from a thin sugar glaze), and dense. The bread's consistency and taste was a cross between Roti Mum's coffee buns and a good siopao dough that has been baked. Nice chewy thickness that held the pork mixture inside. The stuffing was a nice salty-sweet mix of chopped tender pork and pork sauce with no pork fat. Not bad for Php 35 a pop and not bad for Php 210 for a box of six.

Icings' Sweet & Salty buns are now my fave Pork Buns.

Curious to try their sugar free cakes on my next visit. The guiltless Strawberry Cake and Sugar-Free Chocolate Cake looked "sin-lessly" good.
