Take your celebrations up a notch with these unique customized cakes in Manila! This list will help you find the perfect peg for your celebration!

Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries—these are not complete without the gracing of a cake, whatever the size, design, or flavor. Cakes play such a sweet, important role they can even be given a substitute for a thank you or sorry note. But let’s admit it: cakes become sweeter and more intimate when they come in more unique and personal, and of course, with the personal touch of the dear deliverer.

So, without further ado, here are ten cake shops we especially compiled for you for when you want a cake that will stand out in your next celebration.

10. Hearts and Bells

Hearts and Bells has been proudly catering to your cake and pastry needs for two decades with such eye-catching designs and sumptuous flavors. We’re especially in love with their Doodle Cake, a unique take on a wedding cake where guests get to ‘doodle’ their well wishes on a blank canvass—that is the cake.
