Deliciously good Filipino desserts, made by Tita’s Cakes in Sydney

Ever craved bite-sized, traditional Filipino desserts or cakes on-the-go? Located in Western Sydney is Tita’s Cakes – prepared by master chef and baker extraordinaire; Percy Morilla. I was first introduced to Tita’s Cakes through the recommendation of a friend, Jen. She knows I love desserts – well, eating Filipino food in general too that is – and boy what an awesome find. I’m not the best Filipino dessert maker at home, which is why buying these types of treats makes it all the more exciting. And when I find great places, it’s even more fun when I get to share the experience with others. Jen told me to keep a look out for Tita’s Cakes weekly Instagram story announcement (posted on Wednesdays), so I was onto it in a flash. The actual dessert menu changes for these mixed boxes each week, and the options are led by the team at Tita’s Cakes, so it’s an element of surprise where you don’t get to choose the individual cakes yourself. And bam… there it was… Calamansi Soufflé …

(Edit: Rebranded to Hanmade’s Bakehouse, Mar 2020) When your mum sends you a text that says “Jacqui, I can’t stoping eating the Sans Rival. I keep opening the fridge to take some little by little. Ang sarap kasi.” You know you’re onto a winner. And what an awesome find with Hanmade Desserts, a brilliant creator of Filipino cakes and desserts available in Sydney’s north-west. I met the lovely Hannah via Facebook. I was visiting my parents over the weekend and in doing so, I love bringing them local Filipino treats to share. I stumbled across Hanmade Desserts online and thought I’d give them a go. Hannah is great with correspondence and really approachable. She’s quick to respond and has an absolutely amazing, drool-worthy, Filipino cake list on hand. Once you’ve secured your order, the invoice for payment arrives fairly promptly and you can simply EFT, and then schedule a pick-up time for collection. What is available at Hanmade Desserts you ask? I was slightly overwhelmed when I first saw her price list, more so because …

Malditas Sydney brings Ube Cake and Filipino Desserts to the north-west

Reminiscing of Filipino flavours and desserts – licking my lips just thinking about it – I was searching social media to buy an ube cake (to bring to a family event) and came across Malditas Sydney.  Their Instagram journey and pick-up location in Sydney’s north-west is what made me want to try their Filipino cakes. Also known as a purple yam cake, an ube cake may not be top of mind for everyone – especially since it’s purple – but if you’re Filipino or have grown up with Filipino desserts, you know this is a family favourite. In addition to ube cakes, Malditas Sydney offers the following: Yeme cake Pastillas Leche flan Puto de leche What’s more, their ube cake is topped with macapuno (coconut strips) and have a layer of leche flan (creme caramel) in between – a sweet, delicate, twist to each satisfying slice of your ube cake experience. #nomnom #yumm #desserts Ube cake costs AU$55.  I’d say it was about 10-inches / 25-26cm wide and it could easily be shared as dessert portions …
