Southern Dessert Stop: Larcy's Cupcakerycafe

         The first cupcake stop in the B.F. and Alabang area has finally opened! Passing by Aguirre Street every so often, the huge signboard with the words "Larcy's Cupcakery Cafe"was enough to intrigue residents and even those who just happen to drive by the area. A first of its kind, Larcy's Cupcakerycafe has just fed the cupcake trend even more by giving enthusiasts a chance to select a freshly baked cupcake on the spot, sit down, drink a nice cup of coffee or maybe pair it with a nice meal (they also offer savory dishes). 

          When it finally opened, my aunt suggested that we give it a try. Of course, I would never say no to dessert..or anything food-related for that matter. So on a sunny Sunday afternoon, we headed off to check out the newly opened cafe. Upon entering, I noticed that it was well-lit, with added lighting from the huge windows facing the road. Everyone was busy either eating, picking out the cupcake they wanted to try or being acquainted with the cafe's  interior.

        I mentioned earlier that Larcy's Cupcakery Cafe also serves savory dishes. You'll find in their other menu, which is hung on the rightmost part of the counter, breakfast entrees such as Vigan Longganisa with scrambled eggs, Smoked Bangus Belly with scrambled eggs, Mushroom Truffle  pasta, and even sandwiches with either pandesal or ciabatta. Why not wash down all those desserts and palatable servings with either seven coffee drinks to choose from or shakes. 

These are the packaging options customers have in case they wanna take some home or give the cupcakes as gifts. 

A small spot of the cafe is dedicated to the merchandise, such as shirts and mugs, available for sale to reminisce about your cupcake experience at Larcy's.

            Next to the counter, you'll be able to watch the staff "bake behind the scenes" and see how the cupcakes and cakes are made. I always enjoy eating places that give their customers the a glimpse of the ingredients and process that all the food has to go through before putting it on display or serving it right before our very eyes. I've always loved Willy Wonka and being able to gawk at food this way makes me feel like I'm one step closer to winning the golden ticket. Perhaps one day I'll eventually get to fly to an actual chocolate factory and drown in fudge. Hmm. Anyway, let's not wander off too far now. I'll save that adventure for another post.

You can to hold onto these cute pink buttons while waiting for your orders.  

Larcy's Chocolate Obsession Cake, P125
         A chocolate cake with a thick fudgy center and an even thicker topping, the Chocolate Obsession Cake is enough to feed two or three people because each bite carries itself swiftly into your mouth like a 3-pound morsel. Plated on a thin bed of cream and a little drizzle on top helps create a certain evenness between the bold taste of the cake and the lightness of the cream. I feel like I'm describing a Yin and Yang attraction here, where opposite forces interrelate wonderfully. *laughs*

Pink Velvet Cupcake
              The term "cupcake holder" was taken to a whole different level as the cupcakes we ordered were served on dainty stands of different heights. Notice how there are light pink sprinkles atop and each cupcake is lined with  pink and shimmery liners. I don't think you'll have to think twice as to why it was given the name Pink Velvet Cupcake, which is also dubbed as their "Cupcake for the month of December."

             As I undressed this well-received dessert, I couldn't help but ogle at the color of the cupcake. The shade of red was hypnotizing, but the real star here is the frosting. Once you sink your teeth into the cupcake, you wouldn't care for the base as much as the topping. It's that good. But of course, the cake is not to be underestimated - both make a good pair. I must confess, I was trying to see if I could spot the ingredients they used in making cupcakes since I bake myself. I let out a mental "AHA!" when I caught site of Anchor butter as one of their main ingredients. That explains the richness and creaminess of their icing! 

My cousin Neo and his Oreo Freeze

           Not only are the cupcake holders fancy, but their water bottles are just as lavish. At first, it would seem like we were having wine to go with our cupcakes but don't let the photo fool you, this is just a luxurious approach to hydrating ourselves. 

Larcy's Oreo Freeze
           Tall, (slighty) dark and delicious are three words to describe the perfect man..I mean, milkshake. It's been a while since I've had one of these babies and I think that if I wasn't too bashful to sip the whole shake in one go, I would have. Milkshakes always have this certain effect on me - they remind me of diners and my childhood. So as I sipped away, it was a delightful mix of recollecting and basking in the taste of the shake.

  2. The photo of the lady putting frosting on top of the cupcakes - that's the owner, Larcy!

  3. Ang sarap ng cheese frosting ng pink velvet nila. It tastes different from other cream cheese frostings that I've tried. Parang may hint of "cheese whiz" kind of cheese.
