Much Talked About Ms. Polly’s Chocolate Cake

Searching for chocolate cakes to try out, I came across several good reviews for Ms. Polly’s chocolate cake. It is actually in almost everyone’s list of best chocolate cakes locally so it was not hard to convince me that I should go and get one.

Although I am from the south and based on the information posted on their website and some blogs that their bakeshop is located in Merville, Paranaque and that is likewise readily available at Shell Magallanes (yup, the gas station!), I decided to order via

I ordered the 7 inch round regular chocolate cake composed of two layers moist chocolate cake with chocolate icing in between. The cake smelled so chocolate-y good that I immediately wanted to dig in and get a bite when it was handed over to me.

After having tasted Ms. Polly’s Chocolate Cake, I began to understand why a lot of people have come to love and rave about it. The appearance alone of the cake, its shiny and sweet looking icing would win over anyone with a sweet tooth. The cake itself was super moist, soft and fluffy like a “mamon”. It does melt in your mouth as others have described it. The cake has enough sweetness, not sugary sweet but more of the bittersweet type.

Overall, I liked Ms. Polly’s Chocolate Cake. It is something that when it’s gone, you’d definitely wish there was more. I may have my other preference over what’s the best chocolate cake, but this surely goes into my list as well.

Current Ms. Polly’s chocolate cake prices and sizes are as follows: 7″ Round Caramel – P350, Regular – P315; 8×8 Caramel – P540, Regular – P495; and the 8×12 Caramel – P720, Regular – P650.

Searching for Gemmae Bakeshop

Since launching this blog has made me try to recall the best desserts I have had, I remembered that there was this particular chocolate cake that I truly loved. The cake was from Gemmae Bakeshop which according to our family friend who gave it to us was located in Zapote, Alabang.

It was already about a decade ago since I had my share of said cake but I could still remember so well how good it tasted. The chocolate cake was sweet and moist and the icing was just heavenly for me, again sweet, thick and oh so creamy. It was truly delightful (hmmm…yummy!). The edges of the cake was also lined with marshmallow type of icing which makes it the perfect birthday cake =)

Searching on the internet I found a website on Gemmae Bakeshop but it was based in California. It turns out to be the US based branch of Gemmae Bakeshop in the Philippines so I sent an email asking for the address of the Gemmae in Zapote. Well, unfortunately the administrator of the account said that the branch in Zapote was already closed and it was moved to Aniban, Bacoor, Cavite, directly behind the Kalinisan Drugstore.

Well, one of these days I will definitely try to go visit Gemmae in Cavite and see if their chocolate cake is still as good as it was before and I will keep you guys posted.
