For generations now, sweets have brought people together in celebration of special events. No celebration would be complete without a cake or pastry to end a good meal. In the recent #KalyePH2014 event, the finalists and their visitors, family and friends were honoured with a cake specially crafted for IGersManila. The cake was intricately designed and topped off with a huge logo-bearing cookie.
Thessam Maranan, the women behind Playtime Cakeshop – creator of the IGersManila cake is a home baker, whose baking skills were honed through pastry classes until she became a master at her craft. Those were put to the test when she became part of Gloria Jean’s Coffee, Bizu Pattisserie and the pastry team of Shangri-la Boracay Resort and Spa.
“Mr. Sandz Calderon of Kanto Freestyle Breakfast and Chef Arche’s Lime asked me if I would like to sponsor a cake for IGersManila and I said yes right away because Instagram itself is a popular application and most people that I know use the hashtag #IGersManila all the time.” – Thessam Maranan
The mint green, banana-chocolate-chip flavoured cake emitted an aromatic banana scent as soon as the knife cut through the fondant icing which excited the palettes of the discerning audience. For the cake topper, Igersmanila’s logo was printed on imported edible paper and sugar ink then attached to a gum paste and sugar cookie to make it stable. It was so adorable no one wanted to have the first bite, so the group ended up passing it around to take selfies with it. The cake was a perfectly sweet ending to a successful Igersmanila celebration.
Playtime Cakeshop offers a variety of cakes and pastries for all occasions that would definitely tickle anyone’s sweet tooth as it stays true to its mission of having ‘creative ways to edible happiness’.
