We are huge fans of how Filipinos turn any cake and pastry into a work of culinary art. All around Manila alone, homemade cakes and pastries can be found for everyone to enjoy. In this edition of EATSplorations, we will share with you one of our prized finds from Christmas of 2015, the Chocolate Decadence Cake by Joconde Cakes and Pastries. We still remember the time when we saw it from an Instagram post of a friend of ours. It was love at first sight! Just from the looks of it, we knew that it was something special. We got their number right away, ordered, and the rest was history. Although Joconde Cakes and Pastries is known for their Chocolate Decadence Cake, they are also known for their Moist Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, and Salted Egg Yema Cake. Sounds sweet so far? Let’s get going to find out more about our EATSperience!
The brother and sister tandem of Dennis and Yvette Hipolito are the hands and minds behind Joconde Cakes and Pastries. The two have perfected the art of making sweet treats and have made Joconde Cakes to be one of the best in the business.
The Chocolate Decadence Cake
Look at that tempting treat! Layers of super moist chocolate cake put together by a thick layer of cappuccino cream, and enveloped with a chocolate fudge glaze. If those words did not make you drool, there’s something wrong! 😉
[Mr. Eats] I love love love Joconde Cakes’ Chocolate Decadence Cake! It was really really moist. Super chocolaty. It was also unique because instead of the usual caramel to pair up with the chocolate, they use cappuccino cream to shake things up when it comes to flavor. It provided a great balance of bittersweet flavor. I consider this cake a true masterpiece. Perfection.
[Mrs. Eats] I am very much a dessert person. Cakes, chocolates, pastries, ice cream, and the list goes on and on. I definitely can remember how my reaction was when I first saw this lovely Chocolate Decadence Cake. I knew that with the looks of it, it was my kind of cake. The cake itself was moist, and the cappuccino cream gave a good complement to the chocolate cake, as it was not overpowering it. The chocolate fudge was indeed smooth in texture and it was not too sweet, which I really liked. Every bite was pure bliss. This definitely is one of my favorites!
It was great starting the year with this decadent treat! Every bite was pure bliss. The chocolate cake, the cappuccino cream, and the fudgy chocolate glaze. What more can we ask for?

Make your family gatherings, meetings, parties, and the like more special with this Chocolate Decadence Cake. You may also check out their other creations too and make your 2017 sweeter.
