(SPOT.ph) From the wild creations of Ace of Cakes to the timeless classics you'd usually see in the Great British Bake-Off, cakes are just that kind of dessert—they’ve got range. They can do weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and even bachelor/bachelorette parties. But really, you don't need an excuse or occasion to treat yourself to a soul-satisfying slice. That, we think, is what makes the cake so versatile, and we round up some places that not only deliver on the comfort front, but also literally deliver.
10 No-Fail Places to Get Pancakes in Manila
Top 10 Chocolate Cakes in Manila (2019 Edition)
You can get cake delivered from these places:
You might know them for their Mango Bravo (P895/mini, P1,480/regular), which can be quite a challenge to slice. Their latest cake, the Chocolate Obsession (P795), has become an instant hit with its three layers of chocolate. Conti’s has frequently been well within the dessert conversation, and that won’t change any time soon. They’re not limited to delivering cakes via their hotline or GrabFood, either. You can get lasagna (P255), the ever-popular chicken pie (P37/piece, P296/box of eight, P444/box of 12), and other favorites delivered via their website.

Mylene’s Ensaymada and Banana Cake
If you haven’t bitten into this ensaymada, you simply have not lived—they truly earned their place on our Top 10 Ensaymada (2019 Edition) list. But the other dessert that shares the spotlight is their moist, not-too-sweet, altogether too-edible Banana Cake (P150/small, P275/big). You can even order a version with chocolate chips (P170) if your sweet tooth needs the extra texture. Best part? They offer free delivery within Marikina. For other cities in the Metro, you can order via GrabFood and Lalamove.

Buttery & Co.
More and more people have become a little extra particular about their desserts now, and you'll often hear someone singing praises of a cake that "isn't too sweet." Buttery & Co.'s Valrhona Dark Chocolate Cake (P1,200/eight-inch round, P2,000/nine-by-12-inch rectangle) is just the thing in that regard—it isn’t over-the-top yet packs a chocolatey punch, while ube lovers can go for the Ube Caramel Cake (P1,300/8-inch round, P1,900/nine-by-12-inch rectangle).

Tous Les Jours
This bakery from South Korea doesn’t pull any punches with the fresh bread, but the way their cakes look just scream “special occasion.” Their Mocha Crunch (P788) and Honey Hive (P698) cakes fall under their buttercream category, and don’t fall short on decadence or contrast of texture. Plus, most of their cakes look almost too cute to cut into. (Almost.) Orders can be made through GrabFood or Foodpanda.

Wildflour is known for its general flair for breakfast or brunch, and has made its way into the world of Italian cuisine—but they’re as much a bakery as anything else.

Lia’s Cakes in Season
There’s something about fresh, seasonal fruit in dessert that somehow makes you think you’re not doing anything too sinful.
