The Dreamcake, a tin-can cake developed by Le Sucre Lab, was unquestionably one of the most well-liked desserts of 2018.
Their Chocolate Dreamcake, a gooey chocolate cake with a thick coating of ganache and a dusting of cocoa powder, is what first made them famous.
But if you’re more of a berry and fruit person, you can try their Strawberry and Mango Dreamcakes, which are amazing as well.
These Dreamcakes sell out quickly, so arrive early to score yours!

4. Pasteleria Costa Brava
|Location||12 Polaris, Makati|

Quality caramel cakes are hard to find. If you know, you know.
Pasteleria Costa Brava is one of the few shops that have them. We adore their take on this classic dessert, with its incredibly light texture and sweet (but not overwhelming) caramel icing.
Sadly, they don’t deliver, but if you contact them at least a day in advance, you can place your order and book your own courier to come and pick it up.
5. Conti’s Bakeshop and Restaurant

Conti’s Bakeshop and Restaurant has been a household name in the Philippines for over 20 year.

Known for its signature baked goods, Cafe Mary Grace has won hearts of cake lovers with its delectable lineup.
One of their most popular cakes is the Classic Chocolate Cake, a rich and decadent cake that’s perfect for chocolate lovers.
We’re also fans of their White Velvet Cake, which is essentially their bestselling chocolate cake smothered with cream cheese frosting. If you’ve never had chocolate and cheese together before, this is the perfect way to try it!
7. Cara Mia Cakes & Gelato
|Operating Hours||9:00 AM - 10:00 PM|
The cakes at Cara Mia Cakes & Gelato are simply divine. Each slice is a symphony of flavors and textures, ranging from creamy and decadent to light and fluffy.
From the classic Chocolate Mousse Cake to the playful and colorful Rainbow Cake, there’s something for everyone. But what sets Cara Mia Cakes & Gelato apart from other cake shops is their signature Tiramisu Cake.
Made with layers of coffee-soaked sponge cake, velvety mascarpone cream, and dusted with cocoa powder, this dessert is pure heaven in every bite.
8. Dairy Queen

Also, each cake is a visual masterpiece that’s almost too beautiful to eat. You’ll almost feel bad for slicing into it – but just almost.
9. Vizco’s Restaurant and Cake Shop
|Location||Baguio City and Multiple Branches in Metro Manila|
|Operating Hours||9:00 AM - 9:00 PM|
If you’ve been to Baguio but have never stopped by Vizco’s to try its signature Strawberry Shortcake, we honestly feel sorry for you.
This heavenly creation consists of layers of fluffy vanilla sponge cake filled with luscious whipped cream and fresh strawberries.
They also offer many other cakes, including Carrot Cake, Red Velvet Cake, Blueberry Cheesecake, and the Classic Chocolate Cake.
The good news is they now have branches and resellers in Metro Manila and other provinces, so you no longer have to make that long trip just to score a slice!
