There's something about chocolates that makes me feel giddy and turns my mood around. When I think of dessert, I often think of chocolate. Hence, I always look for chocolate flavors when buying ice cream or cakes. One particular cake recipe that I haven't tried but did not grow a liking to is the red velvet cake. First of all, the color (to me) does not look something that is edible. But I was in for a surprise when I tasted Tea Amo's Red Velvet Cake for the first time.
A red velvet cake is characterized by its light or dark red color. It consists of several layers and then cream cheese or icing mixture are placed in between each layer of cake. The outside is also coated with the same cream cheese frosting to make it more creamy and filling.
The red velvet cake I ordered from Tea Amo is a pleasant introduction to this cake recipe. The cake layers were sweet but not too sweet. Meanwhile, the cream cheese filling helped to introduce another layer of flavor. I never realized that I would enjoy dessert apart from chocolate cake just as much!
If you happen to be in Tea Amo, don't forget to try out their pastries, especially the Red Velvet Cake. A slice costs approximately P95 but totally worth it. And it's a big slice, too!
Tea Amo is located at Tionko Ave., Davao City.
