Sweet heart

A few of the pastries available at Galette, Sofitel Manila's Patisserie & Chocolaterie. The heart-shaped cake was a special for Valentine's Day. And yes, their pastries taste as divine as they look.

I don't think I've ever seen a read cake like that before Hilda. Gorgeous and looks yummy.

They look too good to eat, but if you do I am sure they are delicious.

Paula said...

Lovely edible works of art. They all look wonderful.

Jacob said...

There must be a conspiracy to drive CDP bloggers crazy...another post featuring divine treats! It's enough to make me want to also hop a plane to Manila!

Can I? they all look so delectable...I would wish that the heart shaped cake remain that way, unsliced.

Tash said...

Those look (as the expression here goes) to die for! They are so exquisitely made. The red of the heart is wonderful.

It would be impossible for me to choose. I would want to taste it all!!!!

Carolyn said...

The red heart cake is almost too gorgeous to eat. Notice I said "almost."

How did you know Hilda?? As I'm reading your post and looking at the photo of all these goodies I'm putting down a dish of ice cream. Now that's timing!

Mukhang napakasarap nga ng mga tinapay na 'yan! Pero sa sobrang ganda ng pagkapalamuti, magdadalawang-isip akong kainin o 'di kaya'y sirain ang isang buo. Huhmn, yum-yum! U

Yummmy! can I have the red one? :)


Off topic:
Ms. Hilda wag na kayong matakot for me, ok lang namang magpicture ng mosques sa UAE, In fact may mga mosques na ina-allow pumasok ang mga expats at mga non-muslims. basta huhubarin lang ang sapatos or tsinelas pago tumapak sa carpet.Saka kung hindi naman papasok sa loob ay okay lang, sa may pinto lang kukuha ng pics. Kaya lang ako hesitant na kumuha ng pictures dun sa latest post ko ay dahil Bedouins yung nakita ko na parating. Iba ang takbo ng isip ng mga ganung emarati kumpara sa mga nakatira sa mismo sa City.

Thanks po sa concern.

Have a nice day and see you soon. Counting down....3 weeks to go!

now i believe this hotel owes you so much out of these consistent feature in your blog.

Renee said...

What a tasty line up of treats! How do you choose?

Lois said...

It seems almost a shame to eat them because they are so pretty! But I think I would get over that very fast.

Halcyon said...

They all look tasty. But I would be afraid to spoil the red heart. It's almost too pretty to eat!

Ilse said...

I have never seen such beautiful pastries in my life! And I have been in Paris, Vienna & Copenhagen -- the most spectacular places in Europe for pastries. But then, I have never been to the orient, yet I have heard that the luxury & service there is beyond the scope of our understanding. I guess so.

Leif Hagen said...

OH MY WORD! HOLY COW! Delicious photo! Could you you Fedex or UPS me one of each of them??!

Vicki said...

Yum! OMG Hilda, I can almost feel the kilos stacking on just looking at the pastries. :)

The TEFL Don said...

Yummy! I wonder Hilda did you sample some?

Hilda said...

Renee:
By bringing home half a dozen different kinds! :D And even then, I had such a hard time choosing.

FA said...

Was this your Valentine's Day gift? I hope so. Your stay at the beautiful Sofitel could have only been enhanced by these delicious looking treats.

George said...

These really look yummy. Now I have to go see what I can find in the refrigerator.
