Max's Corner Bakery

One of my proud finds for 2011 is Max's Brazo de Mercedes.
My family ended in a Max's restaurant for lunch, from a family day activity from my son's school. The cakes looked yummy and we decided to take one out for a try. I ordered a Brazo de Mercedes and was quite surprised at how good it was.
Unlike the usual Brazo de Mercedes from leading bakeries, Max's version is entirely filled up with custard. The cake holds up firmly and doesn't run flat even after cutting through it.
I find it quite a bit creamier and yet less sugary than its counterpartsand at P200 per half roll, I think this one is a steal.
A must taste!

Krispy Kreme Donut

Krispy Kremes (KK) had a special series of donuts for the holiday. My favorite is the Snowflake doughnut. It has smooth custard filling and is topped with premium chocolate and sprinkled powdered sugar shaped like a snowflake.
It is a perfect pair to your KK brewed smooth coffee... this donut literally melts with every sip of your perfectly brewed coffee.
I am just sad to see it go and leave KK shelves last December 31! I wish they would bring it back.
So going to miss my Snowflakes :C

My favorite KK shop is located at Valero 2 Carpark Building, Valero St., Brgy. Bel-Air 1209.
