Who doesn’t like birthday surprises, especially if it involves receiving numerous P100, P500, and P1,000 bills? Chances are, your Facebook or Instagram feeds have shown you videos of quarantine birthday celebrants lifting their cake toppers and pulling out a string of money bills with nothing but sheer joy on their faces. These special cakes are called “money cakes” (for obvious reasons) and we’ve seen people gifting them to their spouses, parents, or grandparents.
If you’re planning to surprise a loved one with this sweet treat, here are some places that make them.
Donnalicious Bakeshop Philippines
Hide your surprise in a themed cake decorated with the birthday celebrant’s favorites—like zumba, weightlifting, or basketball. Sta. Ana, Manila-based Donnalicious Bakeshop Philippines customizes money cakes with very cute and detailed fondant designs.
The Bunny Baker
If your loved one asks before uncovering the hidden treasure, tell them that this cake is a good kind of sus. Order a money cake from The Bunny Baker in Quezon City, and maybe even add a dessert set to make the celebration extra special.

Le Gré Cakeshop
Okay, so this cake isn’t stuffed with “money” per se, but our inner titas still think that it’s brilliant. In this very witty efficascent oil-designed cake, Le Gré Cakeshop, located in Sultan Kudarat, replaces cash with another great treasure: Salonpas packs. And this makes us wonder: what other surprises can we stash inside a “money cake”?
