I don’t know how long Bebong’s existed. But it seems like it’s that long-time childhood favorite next-door bake/cake shop in Mandaue, Cebu.
I only came to know about it when I moved to Consolacion. It happens to be a favorite of Mark’s family.
But honestly, the only cake I tasted from them is their Mango-flavored cake. It’s not like a haute-couture level kind of appeal. I mean with the many new cupcake / cake / pastry shops with a pinterest-worthy looking goodies, Bebong’s cake will definitely be overlooked. But i guess its unassuming that makes it “lasting.” It’s more of the home-made feel to it that makes it irresistible to me. That kind of cake a family has on their table in every occassion: birthdays, christmas, christening, burial, weddings, etc.
It has a very light taste – not the shocking sugar-rush kind of sweet to me.
