Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, and for sure a lot of chocolate boxes are already flying off the shelves. But why stop at something small? Why not forgo bite-size goodness, push past dietary limits, and present your sweetie with an entire helping of the most enticing chocolate temptation you can find? As the Day of Love is all about celebrating and indulging in things that make people happy, we’ve come up with a list of what we think are the best chocolate cakes in town.
Valrhona Chocolate Crunch Cake
Dolcelatte Cafe & Gourmet Bakeshop
Valrhona is a brand of decadent chocolate hailing from France, and is considered to be one of the finest to be used in baking. Imagine the taste of its tradition and history mixed together to create a cake with hazelnut undertones that practically melts in your mouth. That’s what you get with the Valrhona Chocolate Crunch Cake from Dolcelatte. Make sure to leave your diet outside the door when you drop by!
Nono’s Chocolate Oblivion
Part of almost every list of best desserts, Nono’s Chocolate Oblivion is your definite pick when you’re in need of a delectable upper. It’s dark, silky taste is highlighted by bits of hazelnut praline that add sweetness and crunch in every bite. You won’t regret the sugar high!
Super Moist Chocolate Cake
The Bakeshop at EDSA Shangri-La Hotel
Many people go to hotel restaurants only for the buffet, but if you find yourself in the vicinity of the EDSA Shangri-La, we highly suggest that you drop by The Bakeshop. The Bakeshop has long been known for really great pastries, and their Super Moist Chocolate Cake is to die for. It’s so thick, rich, and yes, beautiful, that you’ll be torn between finishing the entire thing and saving it for a week of Instagram food posts.
(Pro-tip: The Bakeshop always has a buy-one-get-one sale for some of their pastries after 8pm!)
That Xocolat Cake
Whoever baked this up probably realized that there are really no words that can describe it. Simply known as “That Xocolat Cake”, it boasts of a deep and rich goodness that’s nothing short of obscene. No wonder it’s decorated with a large “X”.
Blackout Chocolate Cake
Poco Deli in Kapitolyo doesn’t only feature a great sausage selection, it’s also the home of the famed Blackout Chocolate Cake. This dark confection is a mix of dense chiffon slathered with caramel and Belgian chocolate. If that isn’t enough sweetness for you, then you’ll definitely be satisfied by its outer layer or chocolate chips.
Super Caramel Chocolate Fudge Cake
Looking to satisfy your sugar craving? Sink your teeth in an exquisite slice of Banapple’s Super Caramel Chocolate Fudge Cake. It’s heavy fudge with sticky caramel topped with chocolate sprinkles. It’s sinful and over-the-top – just the way we like it.
