Had dessert here with a friend after a filling lunch in Sikatuna. Have read great reviews about the place and was excited that they served desserts, with flavors reminiscent of childhood chocolates and sweets.

The place was located right in from of Maginhawa's StrEAT restos. It had a comfy and retro vibe to it. Fortunately, we were the only customers when we went there as the place was tiny.

What I didn't like about the experience was the customer service. The woman stationed there barely accommodated us. She assumed that we knew the flavors of the cakes in display--fine, there were candies beside each cake that I can only assume were the flavors. But would have appreciated it if she at least stood up and acknowledged us, instead of staying on her chair with eyes glued to the television.

We ordered the HawHaw and Hany cakes. The base of the cake was moist (just how I like it) and I could indeed taste subtle hints of Hany, combined with peanut butter and HawHaw, partnered with light cream filling. Almost worth the PHP110 each.

After eating, she just shouted out how much our bill was. There was no bill or receipt handed over to us. We paid and that was it.

Overall, will still try next time but will probably order to-go. Wouldn't want to bother the staff who seemingly just wanted to watch TV than do her job. 128528

After our dinner at Artsy Cafe, we had our dessert at Bakers Table were we ordered Flat Tops and Butter Candy Cake. I like their cakes coz the sweetness is just right.

Their cakes are made from the local candies like flat tops, butter candy, milky moo, XO coffee candy, caramel ball and many more.

Overall Ratings:
The cakes that we wanted to try weren't available so we still chose to order their Braso de Mercedes and their Mik-mik cake. The braso is a 7/10 while the Mik-mik cake is a 5/10. There was nothing special about those two cakes, it wasn't moist and both were try. It's like they left their cakes for a week or so and waited for it to be sold or what. We got pissed when the server gave us service waters filled with dead ants. Like really? Why? Then the waiter ignored us and was busy reading a pocket book or what. Sad to say, they failed to satisfy us.

First time here. We ordered haw haw and flat tops, they tasted okay for the first few bites but we couldn't finish them both because they turned out to be TOO SWEET for us. Too bad we left half of our cakes untouched, such a waste of food 128559

One of our Maginhawa pitstops was here at Baker's Table.

The place is just small and can accommodate roughly 10 people. By the time we got there past lunch, there were just 2 flavors being served - the Haw Haw (milk candy) Cake and the Ricoa Flat Tops Chocolate Cake.

Of course we got the two just to try. I didn't get to taste much of the main ingredients for both, and quite not impressive for me. So-so, I must say. The texture was just chiffon with the layers of haw haw or the Flat Tops. It was too sweet for me when we reached halves of the cakes already!

Oh, and to add, the server was not so friendly either; so bit of so turn-off. But nonetheless, at least I got to spend a nice Saturday with my foodie friends. 128513

Two words: Butterball Cake! Remembering your childhood can either be joyful or painful (since it shows your real age128540). This reviewer used to devour Haw-haw and Butter ball candies. Someone had an idea to turn some of our favorite candies into cakes. The butterball cake was just heavenly. Chocnut cake was alright and not that sweet. Place is small but filled with antique (yeah some of you are guilty to have used/owned some of their displays). Definitely would try the Haw-Haw cake someday.

The baker's table is a dessert place where your childhood favorite candies are turned into a cake! Yes, a cake!

So I ordered this Chocnut cake worth P110. The cake was so delectable! I wasn't expecting that this cake would taste good because it looks like it's just an ordinary cake but my palate said it was the bomb!

You can also try their:
💟 Pochi cheesecake (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED because this was the flavor that i have first tasted, my friend gave it to me as a pasalubong 128155)
💟 Mikmik cake
💟 Haw haw cake
💟 Peter's butterball cake
💟 Flat tops cake

i forgot the others! 128532

but it's definitely worth a try! tbh, i always crave for their cakes but unfortunately my schedule won't allow me to go back! But I will definitely go back as soon as I have my vacant! My taste buds misses them so much huhu!!!

I liked the hawhaw cake because it's delicious as it is, not that it tastes like the candy...... But what really surprised me is when I went the first time and a bit disappointed because there's no more hawhaw cake, and the only visually appetizing to try is the butterball cake. I asked for a slice, and when I started to have my first fork, it's loaded w/ icing and Hello! It does taste like the candy!!!!! And I'm happy! Bakers table claims Itself baking candy cakes and they're successful on this... But not all cakes tastes what they represent, like the hany cake, maybe they could've drizzled crushed
hany bars....going back to the butterball, I wasn't able to finish coz it's too sweet : (

I've been craving for Brazo recently after having eaten some from Vargas Kitchen. Since Vargas is far from me, I've been looking for an alternative. I tried Goldilocks Brazo and it disappointed me 128532

I've tried Sancho's and it was ok.. But when I tried The Baker's Table's Brazo de Mercedes.. After having that first bite.. My eyes grew bigger and I couldn't stop myself from eating!

Omg! I love their Brazo de Mercedes! 128588 I think they made it out of pumpkin or squash but it's sooo good and not bad for Php 60 a slice! I'll definitely come back and get a whole roll of Brazo next time 128077

I hear a lot of good reviews about their other cakes, might try those as well! 128513

I think this place is what you call a diabetic's hell! Hahaha! I can't get enough of the Brazo!!!

This is what my 5 year old self dreamt about. A cake made from my favorite candy! The baker's table offers one of a kind cake by turning your childhood favorite candies and sweets to delectable and yummy cakes.

I tried the haw haw cake since its my top favorite candy. I was so excited to try it and when it finally reached our table, i quickly took a bite. At first, you wouldn't detect the hawhaw from the cake. Your buds will be overwhelmed by the sweet sweet custard and fluffiness of the cake that you'd forget the hawhaw. The icing was actually made from the hawhaw so if you taste just the icing, you'd realized its hawhaw!!

If you can't still detect it, they always give the original candy together with the cake so you can maybe compare the two.

I'd love to come back here and try other cake flavors. I was told some cakes are only available on some days so call ahead to inquire. Also, the place only has two small tables. We were fortunate to have a place to sit but the other table was too noisy that we wanted to get out of there after eating. Maybe next time i'll just buy a whole cake and eat it at home Hehe

I've been wanting to try their cakes because I got intrigued by the flavours ( Hawhaw, Potchi, Flat Tops, Chocnut, Butterball, etc.), so I went here after visiting Cool Beans. The place is okay, not so comfy. Kinda small with 3 tables only. I wanna dine in but there's no table available :( Argh! I ended up buying a slice of Flat tops cake and eat it at home.

As for the flat tops cake, it was okay and nothing special about it. Typical chocolate cake covered with flat tops. That's it. I hope that their other cakes are better than this.
