HELLO, plot twist! Just before 2018 ends, the city is introduced to another food trend. A while back, there was this craze with rainbow cakes (because everyone went through this phase of loving unicorns). Now, everyone’s going crazy for cakes in a tin can! Here are some places/brands in Cebu where you can try some of these sweet treats.

Made with lush chocolate layers topped with almond flakes and rose petals, this guilt-free dessert promises not only to be nutritious and sugar-free but also “blood sugar friendly.” Its Matcha and Coffee and Dream Cake Deluxe with Philippine Malagos Chocolate are not to be missed.
Insane Chocolate Cake
SBakes (Instagram) | Monday to Thursday cut-off time: 12 noon | Deliver through Grab Express
Stephanie Cuenca of SBakes calls it so because it has “all the best stuff of insanely rich chocolate goodness.” But her friends and family insist on calling it Dream Cake, with it being a re-creation of a said cake that’s trending in Manila. Coming up with this Insane Chocolate Cake, however, included a series of taste testing to personalize the flavor. This pint-size wonder makes use of all the trimmings like dark and milk chocolate, with chocolate biscuit on top.
Tazza Cafe and Patisserie | Unit 105, Banilad Town Centre BTC, Banilad, Cebu City | Open daily 7: 30 a.m to 12 midnight
Here’s another glorious creation made with five layers of different chocolates: Tazza’s moist chocolate cake, followed by dark chocolate icing, then comes the chocolate glaze for that smooth feeling. The fourth layer is a hard chocolate that gives that cracking sound which is then smoothed over with dark chocolate powder. Lots of flavors. Lots to look forward to.
