Baguio regulars know that the best time to harvest and buy strawberries is during the summer months. Our craving for this sweet and juicy fruit, however, lasts year-round. “Strawberry fields forever” might well be the Beatles song written just for us.

Aside from pie toppings, jams and salad dressing, strawberries make for an ideal cake ingredient—its sweetish tart flavor provides a perfect foil for the sweetness of the cream, while its stark red color and plump fruits offer a feast for the eyes. It’s also packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants, which make every indulgent bite even better.  With bakeshops offering different kinds of strawberry cakes in eye-catching designs, we’ve listed some of our favorites.

Any conversation about local strawberry cakes won’t be complete without mention of the famous Vizco’s treat. Old Baguio Cafe at V. Luna Street in Quezon City brings this iconic strawberry shortcake to the metro, along with other pastries from the City of Pines. Our other recommendation? Vizco’s strawberry tart.

Bonus: Strawberry cinnamon buns (The Sweet Life by Ange)


Prefer something a little more bite-sized? The Sweet Life by Ange has cinnamon buns (which we honestly thought were mini cakes at first), adorned with fresh strawberries and slathered with strawberry cream cheese made with homemade preservative-free strawberry jam.
