Dessert Factory – Ayala Terraces, Cebu 

“One can not think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” ~Virginia Woolf~

Is there anything more gratifying than having a dessert after a full meal? Doesn’t it feel like we missed something if after each meal, there would be no dessert? An ice cream, a cupcake or a slice of cake perhaps. So after a hearty meal with my family on our last day in Cebu. Even if they are “okay” without the dessert, I dragged them to the nearest dessert station that I eyed in advance while we were looking for a place to eat. Well, cravings are cravings, and what have been marching in my mind all the while we are having lunch is a slice of blueberry cheesecake. If I don’t indulge, they will be annoyed with me the whole day, I promised.

So off we went to “Dessert Factory”, it is just 2 stores away from Chickahan sa Cebu.

The taste of one of the best pinakbet I’ve tried is still on my palate, and the beef shank with a very creamy gravy and the scallops. Who could resist a winning dessert right?

The attractive facade and the number of guests speaks for the store itself. .

And I won, I ordered my slice of blueberry cheesecake and another, I asked the attendant as to which is their best seller, and ordered it.

Varieties to choose from..
Had a hard time choosing, If i can get a slice of each? I will! ahaha

So as we were waiting for my blueberry cheesecake and red velvet cake to be served, I took the opportunity to take pictures since their interiors (as well as the exteriors) is literally fetching. Besides, I’ve seen the color violet in every corner, and I wouldn’t want to miss capturing subjects in my favorite color, I’ve been smitten by anything purple since time immemorial.

Since theirs is themed, I see that every inch were considered.

Here are they:

violet hearts
Purple and gold is so royal..
Jesters depicts happiness…
display area
Black and white tiles are a classic..

The black and white tiles are reminiscent of castles with jesters performing. I truly enjoyed this place even for a while.

bnw tiles
For the love of bnw tiles..
second room
Amazing perspective..
I had to capture this for my college bff… This is one of her fascinations..

As I felt like being transported to another time, with all the design elements that are impossible to be ignored, well almost, our slices of cakes arrived.

our cakes
Blueberry cheesecake and Red velvet cake..

We consumed the cake while talking about our trip to Bohol a day ago.. And observing the way of life in Cebu.

The blueberry cheesecake is not that extra-ordinary but is the usual taste of what blueberry cheesecake should be. Same with the red velvet cake, only that it’s like 5″ tall and so we took turns consuming it.

We also had coffee after and off we go to our last stop. My tummy then is happy! =)

Dessert factory is located at Ayala Center Cebu, Cebu City, Cebu, 6000

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
