Nothing Beats the Classic: Ube Cake by Cara Mia Cakes & Gelato

I love anything ube (purple yam) flavored! Name it, I'll eat it! I have a long time love affair with ube ever since I was little. Trips to Baguio or Tagaytay without be complete without bringing home my favorite ube jam. I can sit for hours on end just sitting and eating ube jam straight from the jar. I wouldn't let anything flavored pass my radar: candies, cakes, sandwich etc., even store bought snacks with that flavor I've tried it. 

Obviously I was ecstatic to get a hold of this Classic Ube Cake from Cara Mia Cakes and Gelato, especially that I was feeling under the weather when it arrived at my doorstep. What a perfect pick-me-up treat! Even though I was quite sick, I rose from my bed and took time to capture it. I mean hello, just look how pretty this thing is!

Cara Mia Cakes & Gelato was formally launched as a separate brand from Amici in May, 2009 with the first outlet opening in Greenhills. Using the same principles that Fr Colombo used to create authentic Italian Gelato, Cara Mia has since expanded its line to many more exciting gelato flavors as well as other gelato based products and delectable desserts to complement its mix.

Cara Mia was the first to introduce Gelato Cakes in the country. Gelato Cakes, which comprise various gelato flavors fused in with elements like wafers, pie crusts, nuts and toppings to form beautiful cakes are perfect for gift giving and special occasions. There is also the affogato which is gelato “drowned” in with espresso as well as gelato shakes which are various gelato flavors mixed in with milk for a very satisfying and indulgent experience. The refrigerated cake line completes the mix of fabulous desserts that are proudly served in all Cara Mia shops.

After I was satisfied with all the photos and videos that I took of the Classic Ube Cake, it was finally time to try it. One slice. One bite. Ok, where am I? I think I'm in heaven! OMG this ube cake is out of this world!!! It was super good! Well, you can never go wrong with a classic! Layers and layers of soft and light ube chiffon with ube halaya filling, topped with beautifully whipped cream for an authentic Filipino treat! 

This Classic Ube Cake is now available at your nearest Cara Mia Cakes & Gelato branches! Price is at follows: Whole Php 825 and the Slice is at Php 120. It is available in any Cara Mia or Amici Store for dine-in and available for delivery at 822-1111. Check out Cara Mia's Facebook page to see if there's a branch nearest you.
