1. Matcha Cheesecake by Casa San Luis Pastries
Earthy green tea flavors are the perfect foil to the creamy and indulgent cheesecake base. Did we mention we love the contrasting flavors of the silky cream and sweet strawberries, too?
This moist ube sponge cake is generously layered and sealed with quality ube halaya. By quality, we mean the best! The cake is covered in Baguio's popular Good Shepherd Ube. It's the most authentic and decadent ube cake you can have.
Price: P1,260 for a round 10-inch cake; P1,360 for a rectangle cake (10x18 inches)
Have you ever eaten chocolate cake and thought to yourself: there just isn't enough icing! Ever felt guilt about stealing icing from the rest of the cake? Well, you're not alone. This is one indulgent cake you'll want to keep to yourself.

5. Chocolate Caramel Cake by Big Al's
Served in an unassuming tin container, this cake doesn't need frills to be good. The moist chocolate cake is topped with a caramel sauce that tastes just like your favorite Leche flan caramel!
These incredibly soft, fudgy brownies will make you a certified chocoholic (if you aren't already one.) It's a plain brownie, but done flawlessly so that its star really shines: delicious, dark Malagos chocolate.
We can't decide which part we love best: the burnt brown sugar which coats this dense, cakey doughnut made of sourdough-brioche dough, the rich sugar custard inside, or the fact that it goes perfectly with our cup of coffee.
Price: P80 per piece
Buy: The Alley at Karrivin Plaza, Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City

These sinfully delicious cookies have two things that lure you in: a unique, umami punch that balances the sweetness and a tender, no-other-like-it tender crumb.
