Spent some me time in this instagram worthy, too pretty for words, feel good cupcake place in Glorietta while waiting for the husband to pick me up. Details are just too adorable from the mismatched tables and chairs, to the pink Smeg ref, red kitchen doors, pastel colored decorations, charming plates and uplifting framed quotations. Trigger happy me just coudn't stop snapping away that it was just too hard to limit the photos to post. This branch isn't as spacious though as the Trinoma counterpart that you can really hear the conversations of nearby tables.

I loved my Reese's Peanut Butter cupcake with its soft and moist chocolate base, peanut buttery textured icing and the Reese's pieces on top. My Iced Coffee neutralized the sweetness of the cupcake. The milk container was a cute touch.

Amazing ambiance plus great tasting desserts and warm service sure merits repetitive visits to any Vanilla Cupcake Bakery branch.

Early morning craving for something sweet and I found myself having Banana Nutella. It was heavenly! I usually pair my cupcake with Guava Iced Tea. It's not too sweet so it creates some balance.

They do not just offer cupcakes but also good set of meals. Some are quite pricey though.

I actually didn't expect much on the food at first, I was simply coming for the ambiance, considering this place is Instagram worthy we decided to give it a try. Their ambiance is very chic, cozy, elegant interior, and seats that makes you want to stay there all day long.

Everything in the store was really artsy, from the entrance to the counter to the chairs to the restrooms. Perfect for some girl friends' catching up. It's also refreshing because they use pastel colors. For girls like me who love to just hang out and eat sweets.

I just want to share this observation, The service was really slow and I asked water three times which never came. I had to do it myself just to prove a point.

I hope they do something about this as the way they are says a lot about the restaurant and the whole experience of the customer.

The usage of dollhouse-like interior is common for cupcake joints.  Sonja started it all,  the cutey-patotee joint in Serendra.  Then along came Vanilla Cupcake Bakery. 

The place is too cute, it makes patrons overstay,  take a shitload of self-admiration photos and drain smartphone juice.  The barbie dreamhouse like joint has the best chairs I've ever seen.  The sitting furniture looks mighty expensive and bought from a European country.  For those who has visited Heima,  you get the drift,  yeah?  Personally speaking,  i visit Vanilla not for their cupcakes,  i lounge around and gawk at the chairs.  I should start a mutual chair admiration group. 9786

On to the miniature cakes.  Cupcakes are generally pretty in appearance.  The colorful frosting on top with different designs.  Vanilla is no exception.  I've been to Vanilla a couple of times,  my experience with their cupcakes varies.  Some left an impression,  others were a tad disappointing.  The texture of the pastry is not consistent,  hit or miss.  On good days,  you get a flavorful and moist cupcake.  On bad days,  you get the bad batch.  Dry and unappetizing.  One branch has roaches crawling on the sidelines (good thing,  they ceased operations in this location - this is the one near Food Choices). 

When I'm in doubt of what kind of cupcake to order,  my default is always the red velvet.  Their red velvet is okay,  not remarkable.  Cream cheese frosting on top of dark red pastry.  Vanilla nailed the frosting,  tangy goes well with the red velvet crumb.  As for the actual pastry,  hit or miss.  I still think that Sonja's has the best red velvet.

So far, this is my favorite cupcake store! Everything i've tried here haven't disappoint me. For last wednesday's pick (c/o Teemee T), the brownie cupcake. Chocolate overload. Heaven on the tongue.

So far I've tried three. The Classic Mocha (Php 85) is my least favorite. The icing is too thick and awfully sweet, something you could only take so much of.

One of my favorite cupcake flavors is Red Velvet (Php 85) so I tried it too. Looks cute, those red sprinkles on the icing is a nice touch, but it fell short on the taste. It's okay, all I'm saying is, I've had better red velvet cupcakes before, like the one from J. Cuppacakes.

My recommendation goes to the Coffee Walnut Salted Caramel (Php 70). Cheaper than the first two but I swear to you it tasted better. It has a full flavor and somehow the saltiness balances the sweetness so you don't get bored with the taste. I could be wrong, but I tasted a hint of banana flavor too.

I noticed that the base of VCB's cupcakes is moist but not sparse or crumbly. It makes eating easier and less messy.

The place is always crowded so I haven't tried lounging out in one of those cutesy chairs yet. Maybe all I needed is a good timing. Of course I will go back 'cause are there are still other flavors I'm planning to try.

Vanilla Cupcake Bakery has always been my go to place when I have a short break or when I need a little time for myself. Aside from of course their yummy cupcakes, the dainty interior design and their friendly staff get me to good mood. 128522 My fave is the Oreo Cheesecake Cupcake matched with Cafe Latte.

And if you don't know, they serve good food too! I like their Lengua, Chunky chicken salad, Spinach dip and Sweet Corn Chowder. Their Chicken Parmigiana is also good then my mom gets their Tapa all the time! 128522

Used this cupcake as a mini surprise to a friend. Hehe very convenient! Chocolate-y goodness!

Love the place! Comfy chairs, popping decorative pieces, brings out the barbie in me.

Although I can't say I get the cupcake hype. I'd still prefer a slice of cake or a mini roll at red ribbon, such a steep price for something so small.

Everything about this place reminds me of cute little girls with ponytails and cutesy dresses 128103🏻128129🏻 I love the pastel colors and homey feel...

Funny thing is I've never tried their cupcakes 128514 I come here for the yummy bottled desserts.. My current favorite being the White Oreo Chocolate Mousse which comes in a cute bottle with a red bow.. It's not too sweet and it has lots of Oreo bits.. Doesn't come cheap though @150 each 128184 Other flavors include Mango Panna Cotta, banoffee and Sea Salt Caramel 128522

My BFF, Cedie and I went here to chill and catch up after months of not seeing each other. It was the perfect choice since we wanted to stay somewhere quiet, cozy and serves good desserts.

We got the red velvet cheesecake and Reese Cupcake and the strawberry and vanilla iced teas. All were really, really scrumptious (as stated by Cedie on his first bite). I have to say that the cheesecake was the stand out because the crust was just the right kind of sweetness and 'crumbly-ness' and the cheesecake is red on the inside :)

Interiors? Good enough to eat too ;)
