I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!

I realize my title's a bit strange seeing as Christmas is month's away. However if you've ever tried visiting the Philippines this time of the year, you'd see that we start celebrating Christmas as early as September. And since we're within the 100 days to Christmas countdown, and I can feel the cool breeze coming in, I feel that we're well within the Christmas season.

I imagine the people at Red Ribbon are looking forward to a white Christmas themsevles because they just recently launched their newest creation...

The White Forest!

A perfect combination of white chiffon, white chocolate shavings and red maraschino cherries!

Ok, I admit, the name isn't exactly creative, but it's really quite good! I don't really like cakes in general, but I liked this one. It's beauty I suppose is in it's simplicity. A simple combination of feel good food, white chocolates, chiffon and cherries--nothing overpowering, nothing too overwhelming. Definitely a refreshing change from Black Forest. And I actually never realized that cherries actually went well with white chocolate, but it does. The only downside here is that it's not yet available in all branches. However, if you want to try it (or maybe send me one for Christmas), you may have it delivered by calling 87777.

Of course, visiting them won't hurt either, if not for the White Forest, you might consider trying some of their newer offerings. I for one enjoyed their new Spaghetti with Meatballs and Chicken with Garlic and Mushroom Roll. Definitely must tries!

99 Days to go 'til Christmas!

Hello! How was the launch of Red Ribbon? I didn't get to attend because it was 3pm already and I was still in Makati when the rain fell so hard.

@Cym: Oh, that was too bad... I thought it was fun. I liked that it was a pretty straightforward affair, started on time and didn't take too long to finish. And their new cake sure was good!

Sounds yummy! Too bad I wasn't able to sample it.
